Other common names for Hoya are: Wax plant, Waxvine, Honey Plant and Porcelain Flower. They are relatively easy to care for and are known to have air-purifying qualities. Their leaves are thick and full like a succulents, they can store a lot of water in them so you are more likely to over water this plant than underwater it. If you treat them right, Hoyas have been know to live for decades!
The 'Tricolor' variety of Hoya is one of the most popular among houseplant enthusiasts because of its succulent waxy green leaves which are lined with white and pink. The stems of the Hoya 'Tricolor' can grow in a stunning vibrant pink colour, the better light you give this plant the more vibrant the colours will be.
Hoya are a vining plant, they will happily hang off of a shelf or in a hanging basket but if you give them a trellis or pole they will rapidly climb it. If you look after your Hoya right, it will reward you by sending out cluster of star-shaped flowers which form on the stems.

Light: Bright, indirect light will make this plant thrive. They can grow in a lower light, however it will stunt growth and the plant will not flower.
Water: Allow the top half of soil to dry out before watering during growing months. During the winter reduce watering considerably.
Food: During growing months apply a weak fertiliser once a month.
Humidity: Will tolerate a normal household humidity however for increased growth and bigger leaves an increased humidity will be ideal.
I have ordered quite a few plants online over the last couple of years. The plants I received from Moose Plant Shop were of the best quality I have ever received. The Hoya is beautiful, very well packaged and no damaged caused in transit at all. In fact I purchased another hoya from an actual plant shop a couple of weeks before that cost an awful lot more that isn't in such great shape. I'll definitely order from Moose Plants again.
