One of our favorite Hoyas, Hoya obovata has charming round leaves and looks amazing as a hanging plant. Like other Hoyas, obovata produces blooms that appear as though they are made of porcelain or sugar- white in color with dark fuchsia centers that form in an umbrella-like arrangement in the case of obovata.
4" pot or 6" hanging pot
Place in pot with drainage. Allow soil to dry 3/4 of the way down between waterings. If leaves begin to pucker, it’s time to water.
Bright indirect light. Can adapt to medium light, though blooms will not develop in medium light.
This species will climb if given something to grab onto, though we're a fan of letting it trail and using it as a hanging plant. To encourage blooms, allow to become slightly root bound.
