Help Identify Plant-Variegated Hoya Plant

Hi Judy!

This came in a house plant bouquet and while some of the others were dying off this little guy seems to be doing fine. Not sure what it is but want to properly replant and know how to care for it.


Hi Nathaniel,

Your plant looks like a variegated hoya plant.

You can read all my care tips in the Popular Houseplant section of the website. The picture is of a different, solid green variety, but the care is the same.

Hoya plants are often referred to as Wax plants because of the waxy nature of their leaves and flowers. They have long trailing vines that often intertwine. Under the proper conditions hoya plants produce five-pointed, star shaped, fragrant flowers in red, white, pink, purple, yellow, orange, and even black. These semi succulent green gems are perfect to hang in front of a bright sunny window; be sure to allow the soil to dry out before watering.
