Hoya Longifolia ‘China Beans’ is a beautiful Hoya with elongated green leaves and distinctive darker edges. These edges vary in redness depending on the amount of light they receive. Hoya Longifolia is a marvelous sight to admire as it blooms, with striking little white balls of grapes. Its climbing nature allows this plant to fill a room with juicy leaves and a range of colors over time.

Hoya Longifolia is very easy to care for as long as you keep it in a bright place and take care of the water. Like many other genera of Hoya, this species is epiphytic in its natural habitat, meaning it is actually an aerial plant with rustling, juicy leaves.
