Hoya Arnottiana Collection #105
Styled in Nomad Green pot
If you remember a vine creeping around your grandmother’s kitchen, chances are it was a Hoya plant. This tropical indoor plant — often called a “Wax plant” due to its thick waxy leaves — is a classic because it lives forever, grows to be enormous, and creates beautiful, porcelain-like fragrant flower clusters (it’s also often called “Porcelain flower”).
The Hoya Arnottiana is a fast growing, climbing Hoya with large oval shaped leaves. Native to India and Nepal, it showcases yellow flowers (when the weather is cool) to white flowers (but fade to white in hot weather) with an orange calyx and a moderate fragrance.
Yes. Although the Hoyas are non-toxic to cats or dogs, they can still make them sick. Large consumption of Hoya leaves can make cats or dogs vomit.
