Hoya carnosa Compacta

£24.50

A very valuable and rare hoya variety with an impressive, spiky habit. It grows slowly, forming long, drooping shoots with corrugated, curled leaves, characteristic of the ‘Compacta’ form. Hoya ‘Compacta’ with age creates amazing, dangling garlands resembling thick braids. From time to time, clusters of not less original, fragrant, pink flowers appear at the ends of the shoots. It is a treat for collectors!

It grows slowly, but it compensates for patience with its original, unusual silhouette. It is a plant that is quite easy to grow, provided that the basic rules are followed: moderate watering, well-drained substrate and a clear position.
