The ‘Krinkle 8’ Hoya is characterised by its puckered leaves which look as though they have been scrunched up to create this unusual shape.
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 clusters of star-shaped flowers which form on the stems.

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 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!
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.
