Hello Hoyas! Native to several countries of Asia, Hoyas are beautiful plants with over 900 species that come in unique colours and shapes. Hoyas are part of a family known as Apocynaceae; its subfamily is the Asclepiadoideae (milkweeds). Hoyas also go by Wax Plant, Honey Plant or Wax Vine, and it’s likely you’ve seen one in your grandparents’ home. They’re a very popular indoor houseplant with thick – you guessed it – waxy leaves. If they’ve got all their growing conditions checked off, Hoyas will eventually bloom stunning, small clusters of symmetrical star-shaped flowers that are bright in colour with a subtle, sweet scent. Hoyas are slow-growing climbers and creepers that are relatively easy to maintain, so you’ll often see them perched in a hanging basket or wrapped around a trellis when grown outside.
