The Hoya memoria gracilis has dark green leaves with beautiful silver spots and is, therefore, a very decorative plant. When in bloom they produce fuzzy flowers with a sweet smell.
It has other common names also such as wax plant, wax vine, and porcelain vine. It is native to Indonesia.
They are relatively easy-care, with air-purifying qualities.
Not edible. Not toxic if accidentally ingested.
Light: Needs bright, indirect light. Strong direct sunlight will scorch the leaves. Will benefit from some early morning or late afternoon sunshine. Can cope in light shade but unlikely to bloom. Does well under artificial light making it ideal for office environments.
Water: Hoya plants are succulents and store water. Allow the top half of the soil to dry out between watering, then water deeply and allow to drain thoroughly. Do not over-water as too much water will kill the plant. Water sparingly in winter.
