Deets: If you're looking for an exotic indoor plant that's very easy to grow, take a look at hoya (also sometimes called wax plant). This unique houseplant is a vine (but don't worry; it's not a fast-growing one!) that has thick, waxy leaves and clusters of star-shaped waxy flowers. It's among the most tolerant of all houseplants. The beautiful, tiny leaves are in the shape of a spade and have gorgeous silvery variegation.
Name(s): Hoya Curtisii
Temperature & Humidity: These plants are native to the Philippines, Thailand, and Malaysia. As a result, it is no shock that these plants like it warm and humid. Aim to keep your curtisii warm and never go below 50F (10C).
Although Hoyas are very tolerant of low humidity in the home, they will do better in a humid environment!
Light: Your Hoya will thrive in medium to bright indirect light. It can tolerate lower light but will likely produce flowers if placed in brighter light. The more light it receives, the more vibrant the foliage and the more flowers it will produce.
Water: Water your Hoya when the pot becomes 100% dry. Water thoroughly until water flows through the drainage hole. Discard any excess water in the saucer.
Grower: Beginners, all types.
Pet Friendly: Yes. Non-Toxic to pets.
