Hoya Mindorensis Collection #49
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”).
Hoya Mindorensis is native to the Philippines. This is a fast-growing and low-maintenance hoya to care for - the only thing it needs to get started is support for it to climb in the beginning. Its light green foliage are thick, oval and pointed with no visible veins.
Similar to other hoyas , Hoya Mindorensis thrives in a warm, bright positions. These conditions encourages the hoya to produce pink flowers with white hair up to 1cm wide in large clusters.
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.
