This listing is for an established plant currently growing in a 3” pot.
Plant ships either semi-bare root or in a 3" biodegradable pot.
Important: The plant that ships has one rooted stem (as pictured). This plant ships semi-bare root. This means that the plant's roots have some damp soil around them so they travel safely and do not dry out completely.
Since this plant ships semi-bare root, you will need to plant to pot your plant when you get it. Alternatively, you can submerge the roots of the plant in water until you have soil and a pot for the plant.
Use a well-draining soil and water when the soil gets dry to the touch. This will prevent overwatering and over-drying.
Hoya are tropical floral plants that are similar to epiphytic plants, they get a lot of nutrients and moisture from the air. For this reason, providing your Hoya plant with some humidity is ideal.
In some warmer climates, you can grow your Hoya on the patio or under the shade of a tree. Hoya need to stay above 60F, so make sure you protect from cold or bring them indoors during the colder months.
*A heat pack is recommended if you will be experiencing extended temperatures below 60F.
This is spiller plant (hangs over the edge or dangles), a hanging plant for indoor plants, pots, or containers. Living gift. Unique and hard-to-find.
