Hoya Australis Lisa

$35

Hoya Australis 'Lisa', commonly known as the waxvine or common waxflower, is one of the species in the genus Hoya. Unlike the original Australis, this variety has a lot of cream and yellow variegation, meaning it will need brighter light to keep its colouring. It is a fast grower, and in the right conditions, it will start feeling right at home by grabbing hold of everything with its curious vines. It also tops the list for fragrance, flower size and robust growth.

They enjoy some direct sun, but they'll also do well in bright, indirect light. It is best to place this plant somewhere where it will receive some nice morning sun, or a couple hours of afternoon sun, and then indirect light the rest of the day.
They will do best in bright light. A nice bright place inside your home would be on the window sill or a stool that is right next to a window, either with or without blinds, depending on if the plant can handle sun. Remember that plants will grow based on how much light they receive.
They like the soil to be relatively dry before the next watering. That usually takes about two weeks in an average home environment. It may vary depending on the time of year, your environment and lighting conditions, but for them, it's always safer to underwater or water when you see signs of lack of water (i.e. droopy, floppy, or soft leaves). Water more often in the warmer months!
They can live in any average home humidity condition and are fairly hardy.
When Hoya's are "stressed," which can happen when they are not given enough water or receive too much sun or bright light, they can have some stunning reactions. If you want your plant to bloom, keep the soil dry, if you want the foliage to turn different shades of pinks, reds, or purples, depending on the plant, keep them in very bright light!
The plant comes with a default nursery pot. The nursery pot is usually 0.5" - 1" smaller than stated to fit into the same size decorative pot. Washable Paper Planter Bags are sold separately.
As with all living things, no two plants are alike. There is some natural variation in size, shape, and characteristics. We make every effort to bring you a plant that as closely as possible matches the plant as it appears on our website, in the size you have chosen, and have a good potential to happily grow in your home.
