Introducing the Hoya incrassata, a captivating species hailing from the lush landscapes of the Philippines. Known by the charming monikers Waxvine or Common waxflower, this plant is a delightful addition to any indoor garden, celebrated for its glossy foliage and enchanting, sweetly scented flowers.

Hoya incrassata variegata is an uncommon wax plant characterized by its striking oval-shaped leaves that exhibit variegation along the margins. The dimensions of the leaves on this particular Hoya vary significantly, ranging from 3.5 to 6.2 inches (9-16cm) in length and 1.5 to 2.4 inches (4-6cm) in width. Additionally, the leaves feature a subtle curling at the edges, enhancing their distinctive and aesthetically pleasing appearance.

The Hoya incrassata boasts small, 3/8” flowers that gather in a mesmerizing ball-like cluster, creating a visual feast for the eyes. Each bloom is a masterpiece, with cream-colored petals adorned with maroon tips and a pristine white center. Flowering from spring to fall, this beauty will grace your space with its fragrance, reminiscent of citrus, and re-bloom from the old flower spurs.

The leaves of the Hoya incrassata are solid green and can reach up to 8” in length, offering a striking contrast to the vibrant flowers. Ranging in size from 9-16 cm long and 4-6 cm wide, these leaves exhibit a unique folding along the center vein, adding to the plant's distinctive charm. As they mature, the leaves develop a sturdy texture, maintaining their appeal over time.

Cultivating the Hoya incrassata is a breeze, making it an ideal choice for both novice and experienced plant enthusiasts. This plant thrives in filtered light or under ample artificial light when grown indoors. It requires well-draining soil and favors warm, humid conditions, similar to bromeliads and orchids. As an epiphyte, it can be cultivated in orchid medium or a light potting mix enriched with bark conditioner.

Hoya plants, including the incrassata, appreciate a snug pot, and those that are slightly root-bound tend to produce more abundant flowers. Their undemanding nature extends to their ability to flourish in hanging baskets or as mounted plants, offering versatility in your gardening choices.

This is a plant division in a 2.5” pot, about 1 to 2 years to bloom, grown from seed, limited!

Invite the beauty of nature into your home with the Hoya incrassata—a fragrant masterpiece that combines elegant greenery with a burst of color. Whether you're a seasoned plant enthusiast or just starting your indoor garden, this plant is sure to captivate your senses and become a cherished addition to your botanical haven.
