Hindu Rope Hoya Plants for Sale Online
The Hindu Rope plant, or Hoya Carnosa ‘Compacta’, is a popular houseplant that produces twisted, waxy leaves that emerge on cascading rope-like vines. This Hoya's unique foliage and trailing growth makes it perfect for a hanging basket.
Also referred to as the 'Indian Rope Plant,' the Hindu Hoya is also loved for its gorgeous clusters of pink, fragrant, star-shaped flowers. Though it may be tempting, do not remove the spurs at the end of the vines because that is where the blooms will form. It may take some time for your Hindu Rope plant to bloom, but trust us when we say the wait is so worth it!
Native to India, these flowering succulent vines are slow growing and prefer to dry between waterings. Hoya plants tend to be fairly easy to care for, given you provide them with the proper care. Place your Hindu Rope in bright, indirect light conditions and watch it thrive! Hindu Rope Hoya also enjoy moderate humidity levels.
Some additional care tips we have for this funky little houseplant include placing your plant into a pot with drainage holes and using a well draining potting mix. Good drainage and an airy potting soil are the key to protecting your plant from root rot. Your Hoya will also benefit from the application of a a well-balanced fertilizer in spring and summer.
Its important to note that Hoya Carnosa plants like to be a bit root bound. So, where your typical indoor plant wants to be repotted nearly every growing season, your Hoya likes to be left alone. Patience is key in growing a happy Hoya! Repotting the plant may only be needed once every year or two. If patient, your vining wax plant can grow to be about 2 inches thick and up to 20 feet long!
