Hoya lanceolata subsp. bella - wax flower & pot cover combination

  • Position: bright light
  • Soil: freely draining
  • Rate of growth: average to fast
  • Hardiness: tender (indoors only)
  • Current height: approximately 45cm (including pot)
  • Pot cover: includes a 14cm pot cover

    This is a gorgeous shrubby climber with waxy leaves and tight clusters of red-eyed white flowers, which also look quite waxy, but true to its common name of honey plant, they also have a deliciously sweet fragrance.

  • Home care: To encourage the formation of flower buds, try to position the plant where it will receive bright light - and even a little direct sun at either the beginning or end of the day. Throughout the summer you should always keep the soil moist but not waterlogged. In the colder months water less often, just giving it a good drink when the soil gets reasonably dry. Mist the leaves with water, especially if they are growing near central heating, and apply a balanced liquid fertiliser at monthly intervals while the plant is actively growing. Maintain temperatures above 10°C in winter.
