Hoya Carnosa 'Indian Rope'

Hoya Carnosa 'Indian Rope'

This superb form of Carnosa forms long stems with attractive twisted leaves like thick rope that can cascade to over 1 meter long. Relatively slow growing compared with other Hoyas is well worth the effort. 

Flowers are highly scented and appear in clusters throughout the growing season, older buds can re-flower each year so do not remove them. 

Full sun to heavy shade, flowers better under higher sun levels.  Indoor it will grow well but will not flower as well.  Keep dryer in the cooler months and moist in the warmer months.  If leaves wrinkle it is a sign of not enough water or bad root systems. 

For everything Flora go to Allora
