Hoya wayetii ‘Tricolor’ gets its name because its leaves mix three different colours: green, cream and soft pink. Those leaves will look amazing tumbling from a hanging pot, on a shelf, or anywhere else you like. It’s a plant that’s easy to look after. It loves to be somewhere bright but it doesn’t need watering very often.
Hoyas are also known as ‘wax plant’ because of the slightly waxy feel of their leaves and flowers. Like most hoyas, this is a vine, which means it will grow long stems, so either let them dangle or give them something to climb up. Or if you prefer to keep your plant compact, just snip the stems back to the length you want. It won’t mind.
Most hoyas come from places where the air is hot and humid. This one comes from the Philippines. Try to mimic those conditions at home. Put it in the sunniest spot possible and keep the air around it moist. That means either putting it in a bathroom or giving it a mist every few days. Give it a feed once per month in spring and summer. If you keep it really happy it might produce flowers, which are only tiny but smell of butterscotch.
