Hoya Crassipetiolata is a unique and attractive climbing Hoya species. It is well-loved for its waxy, light green elliptic leaves with dark green veins with prominent venation and its fragrant, white to yellow flowers that typically appear in clusters. This lovely Hoya is an excellent choice for indoor gardens, adding a touch of tropical charm to any living space.

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.

Pro tips

Hoya Crassipetiolata will benefit from regular pruning to encourage bushier growth and a more compact form. Additionally, provide a trellis or support for the plant to climb as it grows. Feed the plant with a balanced fertilizer during the growing season to promote healthy growth and blooming.

Care Guide

How to take care of Hoya Crassipetiolata

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 thrive in bright light, but also can tolerate medium light. A good medium-light place in your home would be in the middle of a room that has a regular size window. They can be placed anywhere between the middle of the room and the window. 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 2 weeks in an average home environment. It will 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). Expect to water more often in brighter light and less often in lower light.

They will do well in average humidity environments but will appreciate a little bit of humidity if provided, give them a mist daily or get a humidifier.

You can feel comfortable having this plant around your home in the potential case where your pet feels like nibbling on it. However, we typically recommend keeping your pets from eating any of your houseplants.
