Macrophylla Variegata Hoya Wax Plants for Sale Online
Hoya Macrophylla Variegata is popular and unique vining houseplant. The exotic specimen is loved for its green and white variegated foliage, climbing tendencies and clusters of pink and white fragrant blooms.
Much like the Hoya carnosa, the Macrophylla Variegata has variegated foliage that is wide and has distinctive creases in the leaves.
Nicknamed the 'wax plant' or 'porcelain flower,' the Hoya Macrophylla boasts oval-shaped waxy leaves that emerge with a slight pink coloring and mature into a deep green. The blooms are little balls of star-shaped petals that are so encapsulating they almost look fake.
Ideal conditions for the Hoya Macrophylla plant include a bright indirect filtered light and a well balanced fertilizer in the growing seasons of spring and summer. Place your Hoya in a south or west facing window for best results.
The watering schedule of the tropical wax plants is similar to that of a succulent. These plants are fairly drought tolerant and enjoy to dry out completely in between waterings. A well draining soil mix and a pot with drainage holes is crucial in protecting your Hoya plant from root rot.
These plants look great in a hanging basket, but will also create a stunning vertical accent if given a moss pole or trellis to climb. As an added bonus, stem cuttings of Hoyas can be easily propagated to produce more plants.
