Hoya Australis Tricolor

 

Hoya australis tricolor originates, as the name suggests, from Australia. It grows either by climbing or trailing, and its shoots can reach a length of more than 2 m. Therefore, it is particularly suitable as a hanging plant. 

Hoya forms multicolored, fragrant flowers from May to September. For this reason, it's also called wax flower or porcelain flower. 

It's easy to care for, and the plant will survive even if you forget to water it from time to time. During the growing season, between March and October, the Hoya is watered evenly but rarely. During the rest period in winter, one pours just enough that the earth does not dry out.

She needs a very bright, sunny location. But it shouldn't stand in the summer midday sun. An east or west window is ideal. If the light is too bad, the Hoya grows sparsely, only leaves a few leaves, and does not form flowers.

The plant will be shipped in a 12 cm pot.
