Hindu Rope Plant

Hoya carnosa Compacta

Regular price £27.00 £0.00

You wouldn't guess from looking at it, but as it is a Hoya, the Hindu Rope Plant is technically a succulent and stores water in its fronds. If treated well, it can sprout sweetly scented flowers which have the texture of wax (hence its second common name: wax plant).

But the Hindu Rope's foliage means you won't be amiss when it's not in bloom. Their leaves have an unusually compact growth habit, folding in on themselves and curling around their sturdy vines. 

You can train the vines to climb up walls or let them trail gently down the pot. 

Growing pot dimensions: 13cm diameter

Pets: Some sources say Hoyas are pet-safe, others point out that their sap contains latex which can be dangerous, so avoid if you have plant-nibblers. 

Looking for pots?

I fit best in 14cm pots.
