The glossy waxy round leaves of the Wax Hoya 6" (Hoya pubicalyx) have a mind all their own. This Hoya makes a great hanging plant because those very leaves grow on a vine that will make its way around your room or down to the floor from a hanging pot. Its leaves are often mottled with flecks of silvery variegation, and depending on how much light it receives, the stems can take on shades of purple. They thrive in filtered bright light (but will also grow in shade) and are easy plants to care for requiring little in the way of upkeep. They require limited water and go weeks without it.
The Wax Hoya is a popular houseplant because of its fragrant blooms in the evening and at night. Clusters of fragrant star-shaped flowers appear on the vine which, depending on the cultivar, vary from white to pink, red and purple.
