The Hoya Plant: Cliff Notes

To many planters, Hoya are like the divas of the plant world - always demanding high attention due to their beauty. But, don't let their high maintenance persona scare you off because these plants are actually very low maintenance.

Hoya is a genus of over 200 species of tropical plants that are native to Asia, Australia and the Pacific Islands. They are all fast-growing, easy-care succulents with delicate foliage and stunning flowers that range from shades of white to deep purples.

Popularity in these plants have risen due to their unique, wax-like leaves and stunning blooms. They're quite literally the Beyonce of the plant world - impossible to not notice and straight up gorgeous.

Why You SHOULD Have Hoya Inside your Home

While Hoya plants outdoors can grow up to 20 feet tall, those kept indoors remain a manageable size and height, usually between 2 and 6 feet tall.

They are also considered some of the easiest houseplants to care for, as they don't require much water or sunlight, making them perfect for those just starting their plant parenting journey. 

Other Added Benefits of Hoya

Hoya plants are great natural air purifiers that work to reduce indoor pollutants.

They are known for their ability to detoxify spaces by producing oxygen. A study put the porcelain flower (Hoya carnosa) to the test and discovered that it was incredibly effective in removing volatile organic compounds from air, also known as VOCs.

So why not bring the beauty of nature inside your home with Hoya plants?

How to Choose the Right Variety of Hoya Plant

When it comes to choosing the perfect Hoya plant for your home, it's important to consider the specific variety that will thrive in your unique environment.

Here is a list of a few Hoya plants we love:

Hoya 'publicalyx',

A stunning plant with distinctive leaves that are sure to catch any plant enthusiast's eye. It's known for its ability to purify the air and remove toxins like formaldehyde, benzene, xylene, and toluene.


Hoya 'string bean'

Known for its slender cascading vines and unique bead-like flowers.

Hoya carnosa 'chelsea'

For those looking for a more classic option, this a great pick with its fleshy, waxy leaves and sweet-smelling blooms.

Hoya Carnosa 'tricolor'

Hoya carnosa is perfect for those seeking a plant with striking variegated leaves that feature shades of green, cream, and pink. Adds color to any room.

Styling Ideas for Decorating with a Hoya Plant

So, you got yourself a hoya plant, and now it's time to find the perfect spot to show it off in your home.

With its unique foliage low-maintenance requirements, it makes for a perfect addition to any living space. Whether your decor is minimalist, bohemian, or somewhere in between, this plant is versatile and can pretty much fit just about anywhere.

Our green friends thrive in different environments. For those that love a little sunshine, we recommend placing them near a windowsill or window where they can soak up some rays. After all, this plant craves periods of indirect light to flourish.

Another option is to hang them from a ceiling in a macrame planter for a bohemian vibe. Placing the plant in a terrarium on top of a bookshelf give it that extra stylish touch.

On the other hand, if you're looking to be a bit more creative, try placing them in a vintage teapot or a colorful ceramic vase for a unique touch.

But, personally, we like to place Hoya as a natural centerpiece for the dining table. It's sure way to get a conversation started at your next dinner party.

Regardless of whatever your décor style, the hoya plant is a versatile and eye-catching addition to any space.

Hoya, Hoya, Hoya!

With a little bit of knowledge and TLC, you'll be enjoying the beauty of your Hoya plants for years to come.
