Chelsea Hoya (Wax Plant)
Hoya carnosa 'Chelsea'
Chelsea Hoya features thick heart shaped dimpled dark green leaves that show faint white spots randomly. It blooms in clusters of waxy pink to maroon porcelain like flowers with the fragrance of chocolate.
Once a Hoya starts to put on flower buds do not disturb it, and after it has bloomed don't remove the spent flowers. Allow the dead flowers to fall off on their own. This interesting plant doesn't like to be repotted unless it's absolutely necessary.
- Light: Indirect Sunlight – This plant needs at least some natural light so place it somewhere with windows nearby.
