Hoya carnosa ‘Chelsea’ (Pet Friendly)
Hoya carnosa ‘Chelsea’ has deep, glossy green leaves that are wide in the middle, then come to a blunt tip. They have a slight dimpled, puckered appearance and texture. Their flowers are light pink/white, star-shaped flowers with a deep pink center.
This is a great specimen for either climbing or cascading, hoyas are a vining plant that climb on trees in nature.
Hoya grow best in bright, indirect light. Water only when the soil is completely dry as hoyas prefer a good wet/dry cycle and do not like being consistently moist. Hoyas also prefer to be “pot-bound” so only repot when necessary and pot in a tight pot, only slightly large in size to the one it is currently in. Plant in well-draining potting soil with added perlite and bark for good drainage.
BONUS: Hoyas are pet friendly!
