Easily recognizable for its heart-shaped leaves, Sweetheart Hoya is a popular choice for many gardeners. This plant will grow well indoors and is easy to care for and hardy.
This tropical plant is found in Cambodia, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, Java, and Laos. The Sweetheart Hoya is a climbing plant that will grow long, bare tendrils that eventually sprout the wax-like leaves it is famous for.
These vines can grow upwards of 13 feet, so be prepared to offer your Sweetheart Hoya plenty of room to grow. They will bloom well both out and indoors with beautiful white flowers with red clusters that look like tiny stars. Closely related to the milkweed, this Hoya produces a wax-like substance when cut or broken.
