A trailing, succulent perennial with slender, fleshy leaves and pendant umbels of scented white flowers from late summer to autumn.
Ideal for a hanging basket or shallow container. Seems to prefer being slightly pot-bound and does better with too little rather than too much water. It does like humidity in the air, somewhere like a bathroom or kitchen. Protect from hot midday sun under glass. Hoyas need a very well drained compost. We recommend an loam based compost with added leaf mould or peat and sharp sand. Never over water and keep on the dry side in winter. Do not over feed Hoyas. A balanced liquid fertiliser a few times a year is sufficient.
