Originating from Australia, the Pacific Islands, and the tropics of Asia, numerous species of Hoya can be found in the collections of plant lovers everywhere. These waxy leafed plants are usually vining or trailing, so they make excellent hanging baskets. Hoya prefer being in bright locations, but can tolerate lower amounts of light. Their low watering needs make them excellent for those on the go or new to owning houseplants. If provided with proper conditions, your Hoya can produce large clusters of star shaped flowers.
