Foliage and flowers

There has been an increasing interest in the cultivation of hoya plant varieties and for a good reason. Their flowers are sublime:starry, with a crystal-like crown positioned on top the flower – they make everyone spellbound.

Are you infatuated with hoya plants too? Do you want to start cultivating them or expand your collection of hoya varieties? You are in the right place!

Continue reading to learn about 80 different types of hoyas, along with tips on how to take proper care of them.

Hoya genus  

The genus Hoya belongs to the milkweed family, Asclepiadaceae. It was named for Thomas Hoy, an eminent cultivator who worked for the Duke of Northumberland. Hoya is the Latinization of his surname.

It comprises more than species of vinelike climbers, twiners, root climbers, vines, bushes,  shrubs and epiphytes collectively known as wax flowers.

The majority of the hoya species are from tropics and subtropics, predominantly South America and Southern Africa.

Not all hoya plant types are succulent

Since they originated from dry areas, the majority of hoya species have thick, somewhat succulent leaves able to retain water until the next water supply.

However, while most varieties can be thought of as succulent, there are some types of hoya plants that have very thin, glossy and fragile leaves. The diversity is incredible.

All types of hoya have star-shaped waxy or hairy flowers borne in clusters and all but a few have a lovely fragrance that is most noticeable in the evening.

It takes some time for hoya types to bloom and for flowers to fully develop, which is a phase when they have coronas (stars in the center). Their blooming period is short, so make good use of it.

Foliage varies from being very thin, waxy, hairless and glossy to very thick and succulent. Some hoya types have very prominent veins, while others don’t have veins at all. 

The leaves of some varieties exhibit white markings and are variegated in the center, cream-colored, that is. Their shape also varies, some varieties have very long and thin leaves (lanceolate) while others are ovate or nearly round.

What follows is a list of commonly cultivated types of hoya plants.  

Hoya plant foliage

Hoya carnosa

This twining root climber is native to India, Southern China and Burma.

The flowers of Hoya carnosa are baby pink with burgundy centers, clustered together and resemble an upside-down umbrella. The leaves are dark green, glossy and oval.

Since it is a vine, it is grown best in a hanging container or trained on a trellis, or as a wreath shape. It performs best in zones

Provide bright light next to a south or west window and a nice, warm spot. Water it thoroughly and allow the soil to dry out before applying water next time.

Hoya carnosa “Compacta“has a more striking shape that resembles a rope.

Hoya carnosa compacta flowers

Hoya kerrii

Differently called “Sweetheart“ or “Valentine“, this plant is available in several forms.

Leaves of Hoya kerrii are very thick, succulent and heart-shaped, hence the very appropriate name.

Some varieties have no visible veins while others have very distinct, some are velvet to the touch, so this is a variable species for sure.

Flowers vary in size and color as well, but clusters generally form up to 25 fuzzy, reflexed flowers and have tints of lime green, but the color changes to pink, pinkish brown, which is caused by the brown honeydew that oozes from the crown.

Provide enough space, treat it on a tomato cage or a wood trellis.

Since it has a very fibrous root system, it can easily outgrow its container. Nevertheless, it is an adaptable climber to grow and very rewarding.

Hoya australis

Well adapted to a wide array of conditions, it is one of the most commonly cultivated Hoya plant varieties.

That’s because there is a lot of varieties to choose from: hairless, shiny, fuzzy, thick and small-leaved, deep or light green – whatever your heart desires.

The flowers of Hoya Australis, however, are always white with a more or less visible carmine-pink stain under the corona, intensely scented.

It is an easy variety to grow, but it won’t tolerate frost, much watering and high humidity.

Some varieties of it are Hoya australis subsp. oramicola and H. australis subsp. rupicola.

Hoya australis flowers

Hoya obovata

Hoya obovata is a climber, leafless at first, but it develops fleshy, thick, round leaves with no veins eventually, medium green with flecks of pink and white. It is said to originate from Bhutan.

Provide good light and the plant will thank you with clusters of up to 30 fuzzy white to light pink flowers and carmine centers all year round.

Honeydew produced by Hoya obovata is clear, so it won’t stain the petals as much.

Provide high humidity and good light to enhance the blooming process, propagate it from stem cuttings in a heavy clay pot.

To help it climb on, use a redwood or cedar trellis, or even wire tomato cages.

Hoya pubicalyx

A variegated, outstanding hoya species native to the Philippines, it is a real eye-catcher in every collection.

Full of surprises – young plants can exhibit tinges of purple on their lush and glossy foliage, while others can have splashes of pink, silver or maroon. 

Besides, once buds open, you will be stunned by a variety of colors of Hoya pubicalyx – from dark brown, almost black, to baby pink, bright rose or even deep pink.

How can one ever grow tired of this plant? That’s because of variegation which is a common occurrence in the Hoya genus. Other hoya species with variegated forms are Hoya compacta, Hoya bella and Hoya australis.

Grow one and you will be amazed by their irregular expression of color.

Hoya Plant Care: Questions and Answers

Question: Is The Hoya Plant Poisonous To Humans?

Answer: Read our article &#; Are Hoya Plants Toxic?

What To Do When Your Hoya Plant Is Not Blooming?

Question: I have an 8-year-old Hoya Hindu rope plant vine, growing long vines but never flowers. What can I do to make it produce flowers? HB, Minnesota

Answer: Many home Hoya growers cannot get their plant to bloom. Hoya plants flourish best in bright indirect light, in humid air, with ample moisture at the roots. But, Hoya plants need a break. More on Hoya lighting needs here.

During winter keep the plants cool, 50° degrees Fahrenheit, and rather dry. Continued high temperature, fertilizer (liquid), and moisture promotes leaf and stem growth and prevents the formation of flower buds.

After buds set, you can increase the temperature again slightly.

Hoya Plant In Soil Not Flowering, Long Cutting Growing in Water Does Flower &#; Why?

Question: I have two plants of Hoya motosekei. The original plant is growing in soil. I took a long cutting and rooted it in a glass of water. It is still growing in the water, sitting on the window sill.

The plant in the glass of water blooms. The one in the soil does not. Do you have any idea why?

Answer: The first important item to remember &#; the Hoya flower only &#;shows up&#; on long shoots. Secondly, the wax plant flower will do best when placed next to the glass on the window sill as well.

Personally, I would pot up the blooming plant in a well-draining soil like an African violet potting medium. Place both plants in the window, keep them well watered, and next spring you should see more blooms.

With hoya species pictures list

Hoyas are a wonderfully strange, beautiful, and numerous plant genus that&#;s gaining many fans. Besides their amazing flowers, foliage, and fragrance &#; and despite their reputation for being difficult &#; many Hoya varieties make excellent beginner plants. No matter how experienced you are as a gardener, you&#;re certain to be surprised and intrigued by some of these beautiful Hoya varieties.

Hoyas are a diverse plant genus that produces fragrant, star-shaped flowers. Some are easier than others, but all need well-draining soil, warmth, and indirect light. The Eriostemma subgroup prefers strong light and soil that dries between waterings; some Hoyas need cooler night temperatures to bloom.

Hoya Overview

Often sold as Wax Plants, Hoyas are loved for their scented flowers and radiant foliage. Many fans appreciate their stiff, sculptural profile. The countless Hoya varieties just add to the joy.

The expansive genus is native to Asia and Australia, where many grow epiphytically in trees. Most are vines, but a few have bush-like growth. One popular subset of Hoyas need cooler temperatures to bloom.

Hoya flowers are five-pointed stars that come in many shapes, sizes, and red-toned colors. They can be glossy or matte; many are &#;fat&#; and some are fuzzy. Even the buds are beautiful: they swell and change in the process of going from bud to bloom.

Hoya Care

Hoyas have an unfortunate image of being difficult to maintain, but only some Hoya varieties really deserve it. Success often boils down to whether you can supply high humidity and properly monitor soil moisture.

There are variations … some Hoyas like bright light, some partial shade; some species thrive on consistent moisture, others need time to dry out.

Because of this diversity, there isn&#;t one universal care regimen for all Hoyas. It&#;s important to find out the specific demands of your variety.

  • Prune carefully! New flowers develop from old flowering spurs—if you trim these, there won&#;t be blooms.
  • Though often described as low-light plants, most Hoyas actually like a lot of (indirect) light. If you have a hanging plant, make sure there&#;s enough light on top so it doesn&#;t go bald.
  • Hoyas love bright windows &#; pull them a few feet away from the glass in hot, direct sun. If the exposure is weak, add grow lights.

Growing Tips

  • Let excess water run through the soil at watering time. This fully saturates the soil and helps flush out residual fertilizer and other contaminants.
  • Temperatures between 60ºF (15ºC) and 85ºF (30ºC) suit most Hoyas. They aren&#;t typically frost-tolerant, though there are exceptions. Hoyas that come from high altitudes prefer evening temps to drop as low as 50ºF.

Note: Temperature and watering are important for flowering, and some varieties need a winter&#;s temperature fluctuation to bloom.  If you&#;re having trouble getting flowers, try giving your Hoya a cool spot and cut back on watering over the winter.

  • Even Hoya species that don&#;t require high humidity will grow faster with it. Semi-succulent varieties can adapt to lower levels, but thin-leaved varieties can be very difficult if they don&#;t have 60% humidity or more.
  • Hoyas aren&#;t usually big feeders, so feed lightly. Apply a general-purpose liquid houseplant fertilizer at half strength once a month during the spring and summer … or feed every two weeks with an organic fertilizer like worm castings or fish emulsion. Consider bumping up the phosphorus percentage to promote blooming.
  • Pests aren&#;t usually a big issue for healthy Hoyas. Mealybugs and aphids are the most common guests.

Collecting Hoyas

Hoyas are a wonderful plant group to collect because it contains so many unique forms.

Official names of different Hoya varieties are in a continual process of change as botanists advance their understanding. It keeps growers and retailers on their toes.

A group of former Hoyas is called Eriostemma; Hoya is now their official synonym. An Eriostemma&#;s main distinguishing characteristic is short, soft hairs covering its stems and leaves. As ground plants that twine up trees to live aloft, this group is probably the most difficult to keep happy in a container.

  • Hoyas don&#;t put on new growth until their root system is developed, which is why keeping them in rootbound in small pots helps maximize production. Move the plant to a larger pot after it has put on significant size.
  • Some types of Hoya produce nectar during flowering. Nectar is a nice word for a dripping, viscous goo that can damage fabric and furniture &#; protect your valuables!
  • The stem&#;s growing tip can easily be damaged: heat, intense light, underwatering, or even simple handling can injure the fragile tissue. Damaged tips stop growing and dry up, so handle carefully.

50 Beautiful Hoya Varieties You Will Love

The 50 Hoya varieties on our list are ranked in approximate order of availability and cost. It&#;s not ordered by the difficulty of growing: some of the most desirable and expensive species make fine beginner plants.

This list reflects a US perspective. Availability varies according to location.

Care tips are included, but these aren&#;t comprehensive. Research the care needed for your specific plant.

If you&#;re just starting with Hoyas, don&#;t be discouraged by species priced beyond your budget. The market fluctuates: it may be economical by the time you&#;re ready for it.

If you’d like to get some of these stunning Hoyas, buying online is an excellent option. Hoyas ship very well and the variety available online is much better than anything I can find locally. Click here to see the beautiful selection of Hoyas available from Etsy.

1. Hoya Carnosa (Porcelain Flower, Wax Plant)

hoya carnosa hoya varieties

The basic (green) form of Hoya Carnosa is less common than many of its excellent hybrids (of which there are a ridiculous number). The foliage can be plain, variegated, crinkled, or otherwise textured. The blooms are long-lasting, fuzzy clusters of fragrant stars.

Hoya carnosa are hardy, versatile, and easy to live with: they adapt to moderate humidity and light better than most Hoyas. They&#;re equally happy climbing a trellis or cascading from a hanging basket.

The Carnosa has been cultivated since its discovery in ; there are dozens, maybe hundred of cultivars. These include some of the hottest houseplants currently on the market:

  • &#;Argentea Princess&#;
  • &#;Chelsea&#;
  • &#;Compacta&#; (Indian Rope)
  • &#;Exotica&#;

This all-star is great for beginners, and it might reveal if you&#;re a prospective Hoya fan. Carnosa hybrids are found everywhere Hoyas are sold, but beware: the plant has launched countless plant addictions. I&#;ve written a guide to caring for Hoya carnosa, which should get you up to speed with the main aspects of Hoya care.

2. Hoya Pubicalyx

One of Hoyas&#;s charms is that inexpensive, common varieties can be as gorgeous and interesting as rare, expensive ones. Such is the case with Hoya pubicalyx, an easy-to-grow Hoya that blooms in clusters of up to 30 small, fuzzy flowers. Its crisp, ovoid leaves splay out from vines that grow up to eight feet long. The fragrant flowers last up to 14 days.

Pubicalyx is a hardy twining vine that can trail or climb, but it&#;s a little unruly: you may spend time unwinding the plant from its neighbors. It&#;s one of the fastest-growing Hoyas and very easy to propagate &#; just put a cutting in water.

Hoya pubicalyx is inexpensive and easy to find locally and online. There are cultivars with flower colors from black to deep red to light pink. One of the most sought-after is the &#;Pink Silver&#; hybrid flecked with white variegation.

3. Hoya Kentiana

Hoya kentiana is kept for its foliage as much as for its blooms. This buoyant plant fills a pot with a bustling crop of long, lance-shaped leaves. Its sculptural foliage has a waxy surface and attractive dark edges. The clusters of cute, fat little flowers last about a week and smell sweetly of butterscotch.

Hoya kentiana isn&#;t a finicky plant and can adapt to moderate humidity. Aim for at least 40%, using some of these ways to increase humidity if needed. It likes bright light which can include gentle sun. Give them rocky or barky soil and be careful not to overwater.

This plant looks better the bigger it gets and makes a stunning hanging basket. Hoya kentiana has started showing up in garden centers recently and isn&#;t pricey or hard to find. There are many attractive hybrids with different colors and variegation patterns.

4. Hoya Kerrii

hoya kerrii hoya varieties

This plant, otherwise known as a Sweetheart Hoya or Lucky Heart, is commonly sold as a single, heart-shaped leaf planted in a small pot. The bright emerald green color of the cute, rounded leaves makes them popular St. Valentine&#;s Day gifts.

The leaves are thick and almost succulent, and grow about two and a half inches wide. Its climbing vines can reach over twelve feet long.

Hoya kerrii is easy to maintain and can grow briskly once acclimated. It does like stronger light than many varieties &#; up to % of full sun. It likes very fast-draining soil.

Many people who buy a Sweetheart Hoya leaf don&#;t realize it is a leaf cutting and not a full plant. If you buy the plant as a leaf, expect a long waiting period for further development … but it can happen. As long as a stem node was included in the cutting, your leaf may grow into a plant.

5. Hoya Lacunosa (Cinnamon Hoya)

Another fun entry-level Hoya, this is the first plant on our list prized mainly for its fragrance. The plant&#;s tiny, fuzzy blooms have a cinnamon-scented fragrance that fills their space. Sets of leaves grow along pliable stems; the small, canoe-shaped foliage is waxy and outlined with refined dark edges.

Hoya lacunosa makes an excellent low-maintenance houseplant. It&#;s a cool-weather Hoya that likes a very airy mix. The plant can reach over five feet tall; as long as the soil isn&#;t kept too damp, watering it more frequently can stimulate faster growth.

This fragrant variety is a great introduction to highly scented Hoyas. It&#;s common and is often available for a reasonable cost in garden centers. The original Hoya lacunosa has parented many successful hybrids, too. Speaking of scented plants, I&#;ve covered some other wonderfully fragrant houseplants in this article.

6. Hoya Australis

hoya australis hoya varieties

Known commonly as Waxvine or Waxflower, this popular and easy-going Hoya has long climbing stems and broad glossy leaves. The flowers are white with red accents and produce a strong, pleasantly spicy fragrance.

The evergreen vines of this hardy Australian native can reach up to 30 feet long. They enjoy strong indirect light: leaves in brighter conditions take on a gold tint. The foliage darkens in a lower-light setting.

Hoya australis is a great all-around flowering vine that&#;s been in cultivation for a long time and has many hybrids. Some favorites are the Australis &#;Lisa,&#; &#;Rupicola,&#; and &#;Variegata.&#; You can read my article about growing Hoya australis for more info. You can also buy Hoya australis online and have it shipped directly to your door.

7. Hoya Obovata

This well-loved variety features large, distinctive saucer-shaped leaves. Its vines form a bushy tangle of overlapping foliage. Some varieties have pink or silver variegation flecks scattered over the dark green leaves.

Hoya obovata&#;s lovely star-shaped blooms are white to pale purple with pink or red centers. The plant turns lighter in higher light.

While this isn&#;t the absolute easiest Hoya, beginner&#;s can have success with careful attention to watering. The plant likes humidity but tolerates average conditions and generally isn&#;t finicky.

This high-personality plant is very popular and widely available. It&#;s a wonderful second Hoya for a novice. They are prolific and easy to propagate.

8. Hoya Retusa

This popular little oddity hails from the stranger side of the Hoya spectrum. It features slim, flat, stick-like green foliage splaying out from the soil. The end of each leaf looks as if it were chopped off.

The Hoya retusa produces a scattered crop of chubby, white flowers with maroon pop-out centers … but it can be a challenge to bloom. These are cool-weather plants that need lower night temperatures to trigger flowering.

This unusual variety diversifies your collection and gives you a chance to experience less common forms of Hoya. Hoya retusa may not seem appealing at first glance, but their charm and character can grow on you. It&#;s an in-person plant.

9. Hoya Bella (Hoya Lanceolata Spp. Bella)

This elegant foliage plant has pointed elliptical leaves deeply indented along the center vein.  Its blooms are another highlight: the star-shaped clusters of adorable fat, white flowers have a delicate red to pink coloration.

Hoya bella is the most demanding Hoya we&#;ve met so far. It&#;s an epiphyte that needs light, barky substrate; the soil should dry slightly but never completely. Colder nights down to 50ºF (10ºC) and moderate light are preferred. Watch for mite and thrip infestations.

This formerly exorbitant Hoya&#;s popularity has finally increased production enough to lower prices and make it available. You can buy Hoya Bella from Etsy and have it shipped directly. It&#;s a rewarding specimen and a good step up to more challenging Hoyas.

Hoya Wayetii

A popular variety with draping stems of cascading, canoe-shaped foliage. Its leaves are similar to the Kentiana, but Hoya wayetii&#;s foliage is shorter and more rounded. It blooms in clusters of attractive plump flowers.

One of the more hardy Hoya varieties, Hoya wayetii likes higher humidity and will pucker if under (or over) watered. It needs a super well-draining mix to keep its epiphytic roots oxygenated (Read my guide to houseplant soil for more information). Give them substantial indirect light to maintain the leaf edge variegation.

A great beginner&#;s Hoya, the mature Wayetii makes a hanging basket into a showpiece. There&#;s no shortage of Hoya wayetii hybrids to choose from … the variegated cultivars are especially in demand.

Hoya Caudata

The mesmerizing green, semi-succulent foliage of this maverick species is variegated with light-colored splotches over long, oval leaves. Silvery blotches and flecks mark the leaves randomly in vibrant patterns. The attractive blooms are clusters of white fuzzy stars with red centers.

The plant isn&#;t finicky, but it does want humidity above 50% and consistent soil moisture … the trick is to find the sweet spot. They don&#;t like intense illumination, and it will need extra time to acclimate after relocation.

There are several popular hybrids including the Sumatra, Borneo, Silver, and Big Green. Hoya caudata isn&#;t a common garden center plant, but it&#;s easy to locate online.

Note: We’re leaving the common retail varieties behind! The following Hoyas are usually sourced online through collectors and specialty growers.

Hoya Macrophylla

This large, rambling species is prized most especially for its waxy, light green, vein-patterned foliage. Their pointed oval leaves have an interesting 3-D texture. Prominent pale veins run longitudinally across a network of horizontally laid smaller veins.

The flowers are small and dainty, but their color is subdued. The blooms are outshone by the eye-catching leaves, which can grow to five inches long. The plant tops out at about five feet in height with climbing support—it needs space or will have to be cut back significantly.

This easy Hoya likes strong indirect light and humidity of at least 60%. It benefits from a bit of crushed egg or oyster shell mixed into the soil. An eastern exposure with many hours of consistent indirect sun is an ideal location.

Hoya macrophylla is occasionally offered at garden centers and isn&#;t too pricey. Hybrids with colored leaf margins are usually the most popular and widely available.

Hoya Shepherdii

This hardy species is commonly called the Stringbean Hoya for its long, semi-succulent, ribbon-like leaves. Their large, fragrant flowers are white with a red core and have a pristine, starlike bloom in the center.

Normal Hoya care is required. Hoya shepherdii blooms easily (for some), and likes a cool indoor range from 50°F (10°C) and 77°F (25°C). The plant needs well-draining soil and prefers to dry briefly between waterings; it&#;s rather slow-growing and adapts to average humidity.

Hoya shepherdii&#;s slender foliage adds diversity to a Hoya collection and looks stunning in a hanging basket—the blooms are a bonus. It isn&#;t a hard variety to source, just don&#;t confuse it with another strap-leaved species like the Wayetii or Kentiana.

Hoya Memoria (Gracilis)

This clean-cut vine features elegant, bright-green, elongated oval leaves with a waxy finish and a light speckling of variegation. New foliage emerges with red hues. They bloom in pink flowers with red and yellow centers that exude the sweet scent of caramel.

This is an easy-going variety that a conscientious novice can succeed with. It&#;s prolific under normal Hoya care. Hoya memoria doesn&#;t twine but can climb with attachment support and also makes a wonderful hanging plant. It flowers almost continuously under good conditions.

This is a Hoya species that was sold as a Hoya gracilis for years, and sometimes it still is. Formally described in and renamed, Hoya memoria&#;s availability varies by location … but a cutting is usually available for a reasonable price.

Hoya Neocaledonica

A sweet vining Hoya that blooms well and is perfectly sized for container living. The rounded foliage is a cheerful lemon-green shade.  The plant produces yellow flowers with pink to cherry red centers.

This is an easy Hoya to care for. Normal care tips apply, but this plant could happily belong to a beginner&#;s collection if it were more widely available.

Hoya neocaledonica is a hardy variety that&#;s less common than it should be, so it might take extra effort to track down. It&#;s a worthwhile and simple Hoya that needs your love.

Hoya Fitchii

This gorgeous vining plant features a pale, finely webbed vein pattern over emerald leaves &#; but that&#;s not all. The Hoya fitchii also produces copper-colored blooms with vibrant coral-pink centers. The colors are influenced by growing conditions and can vary from yellow to orange to pink.

This is one of the easier Hoya varieties, though it&#;s typically slow-growing. It does better in higher humidity and can struggle with less than 50%. You can let the soil dry out a bit before rewatering.

Hoya fitchii is popular and in-demand with collectors, but it isn&#;t in most local garden stores. You can usually find cuttings and small plants online. Prices aren&#;t cheap but haven&#;t hit the ozone layer, and hopefully won&#;t.

Hoya Burtoniae

The compact, fuzzy leaves and mid-length vines make this a popular hanging basket plant. Its olive-green foliage reddens in high light; a dark border may be present. The plant blooms easily and produces quantities of raspberry-colored flowers in groups of per cluster. 

There is more than usual confusion around the Hoya burtoniae&#;s identity. It has a near-twin called the Hoya Sp. Aff. burtoniae (Sp. Aff. means &#;Species Affinity&#;), and it&#;s also commonly sold as a Bilobata or DS, or a cross between them. Exercise caution when purchasing, and remember that the real Hoya burtoniae has fuzzy leaves.

All of these similar species are nice &#; you might want to consider one of these instead. The trending Sp. Aff. Burtoniae is even hardier and more tolerant than its namesake. Just be sure to know what you&#;re getting!

Hoya Coronaria

This variety will turn your head if you&#;re an aficionado of fuzzy leaves. The deep green, often glaucous-colored stems and large, paddle-shaped foliage are covered in a soft layer of fuzz &#; it&#;s basically a felted plant.

The other outstanding feature of this species is its solid flowers with hardened petals; from the front it looks like an ocean starfish. The blossoms are sizeable at over an inch wide and have reddish-pink speckling and tinting that is affected by their lighting.

Hoya coronaria is an Eriostemma, so it&#;s not one of the easier Hoyas. It has a squat, low profile with thick central stems that can grow to five feet in length. The leaves are succulent and need less water than some Hoyas, but the plant likes high humidity.

This specialty Hoya isn&#;t hard to find, and it&#;s a beautiful and unusual addition to any collection. Its many cultivars include flowers from white to red.

Hoya Linearis

This eye-catching radical is a departure from the oval-leaved, vining Hoya of popular imagination. Hoya linearis has long, thin, fuzzy leaves that look like decorative green beans. Blooms come in clusters of white, lemon-scented flowers with yellow- or pink-hued centers.

The Hoya linearis is a cool growing Hoya that prefers lower temperatures at night. It&#;s a bit demanding. The plant tends to shrivel in less than % humidity, and must be watered carefully because it&#;s sensitive to rot.

This up-and-coming star is comparatively new on the market. Growers are slowly catching up with demand, so look for prices to start settling. Cuttings should be available online.

Hoya Finlaysonii

Hoya finlaysonii is a designer hybrid with an exotic, upbeat vein pattern. The long, oval foliage is fuzzy and soft. The plant produces globular clusters of white flowers with red center blossoms that look like gummy-bear candy &#; but the scene-stealing foliage is the main attraction.

Though this isn&#;t one of the more difficult Hoya varieties, it doesn&#;t hurt if you have some Hoya experience. It can be a slow grower depending upon your strain.

This excellent Hoya has been around for years without generating much attention, but it&#;s lately been caught in a collectors&#; frenzy. Rooted stems and cuttings are flying everywhere. A short online search should yield results.

Hoya Imperialis

This is one of those cute baby plants that grow into monsters. The elongated oval leaves of a small plant are just a few inches long &#; foliage on a mature specimen reaches over a foot in length.

The oversized red or pink flowers with cream centers blooms are a highlight, too. The variety blooms prolifically in good conditions and is one of the easier Hoyas to flower.

Unlike many Hoya varieties, the Hoya imperialis is a terrestrial plant that wants a more typical soil than the airy mixes used for epiphytes. It likes a lot of light and does well pulled a few feet back from an intense southern or western exposure. Tolerates a range of 60º (15ºC) to 90ºF (32ºC) but slows down below 70ºF (21ºC).

This plant is popular with collectors but isn&#;t on the general market, so it may take a short search to find. There are several exceptional hybrids, including the &#;Palawan&#; with vanilla-colored blooms.

Hoya Skinneriana (Hoya ‘Dee’s Big One’)

For years it was thought this plant was a Carnosa hybrid, but after testing it was officially reclassed to Hoya skinneriana. It has robust, vibrant green, oval leaves on rambling vines … but the reason for the plant&#;s runaway popularity is its blooms.

The plant produces flowers in shades of pink and white that are almost an inch wide, packed in clusters of 20 or more. These form softball-sized puffs of color all over the plant and last for days.

A second reason for this variety&#;s popularity is how easy it is to keep. One reason this plant was assumed to be a Carnosa for so many years is that it thrives on similar care and makes a great beginner&#;s plant.

You won&#;t have trouble finding &#;Dee&#;s Big One&#; online, and you may occasionally spot them in garden centers. It&#;s a great all-rounder that&#;s sparked more than one Hoya addiction.

Hoya Diversifolia

This trailing Hoya has simple green, oval leaves with deep indentations along the central vein. It produces the classic Hoya flower: a large drooping cluster of star-shaped, fuzzy, waxlike pink-and-white or yellow blooms. The flowers are fragrant and often produce nectar (protect vulnerable furnishings!).

Normal care for an epiphytic Hoya is required, including an airy, fast-draining mix. They prefer strong indirect light or dappled sun. If you are having trouble with blooming, providing more light may help. Provide climbing support.

Hoya diversifolia is an excellent flowering variety that begins blooming early in life and produces steadily through the warm season. It&#;s not difficult to source online, but some cultivars are more common than others.

Hoya Pachyclada

This striking Hoya is an extreme of the succulent type, with fat foliage and thick stems. Its rounded, slightly cupped leaves have prominent veins and are attached to the main trunk by a thick petiole; the leaves grow bigger as the plant grows. The plant blooms profusely with fragrant white flowers.

This is a slow grower and something of a xerophyte (needs little water). Treat this plant more as a succulent than a typical Hoya: give it bright light and let the soil dry before rewatering. Make sure the soil drains quickly so the roots never sit in water.

A Hoya variety that&#;s been around for years and is sometimes overlooked, the Hoya pachyclada is a great plant for novices. A large specimen looks fantastic cascading from a hanging basket. It may take a search to find, but it&#;s not rare.

Hoya Mindorensis

This champion blooming variety produces ball-shaped clusters of red-hued and white flowers. The plant is straightforward but attractive, with lance-shaped green foliage on vining stems.

This is an ephiphyte, so make sure the soil is chunky and fast-draining. Hoya mindorensis isn&#;t difficult if you supply good humidity and light. A drop of about 10ºF overnight can aid health and flowering.

Charming flowers like those of Hoya mindorensis are one reason people fall in love with Hoyas. This isn&#;t a common variety but shouldn&#;t be hard to find. Prices are very uneven, so you might get a bargain if you shop around.

Hoya Multiflora

This distinctive Hoya with a woodland vibe has strong stems, thin leaves, and upright growth. The elongated foliage is deep green. The plant blooms in profuse clusters of narrow, swept-back white petals that gradate to yellow at the ends &#; the reason it is called the Shooting Star Hoya.

Care guidelines for this thin-leaved variety follows basic Hoya requirements but allows for more frequent watering. The plant tolerates moderate light and average humidity. It blooms prolifically in good conditions.

The Hoya multiflora is an excellent Hoya that should get more attention. It&#;s a bit uncommon but can be found online.

Hoya Affinis

This vibrant Hoya features pale green, paddle-shaped leaves on winding stems. Tiny hairs on the leaves give it a fuzzy appearance. The maroon, mildly musk-scented flower clusters are almost two inches across.

An Eriostemma native to the Solomon Islands, the vines of this warmth-loving climber must grow almost five feet long before it will flower. The plant likes strong indirect light and will stretch for a light source if conditions are dim. It tolerates average humidity.

Hoya affinis is a wonderful flowering variety with classic foliage that makes a fantastic hanging plant. It&#;s a popular collector&#;s plant and shouldn&#;t be hard to obtain.

Hoya Sigillatis

A designer&#;s Hoya, this classic variety features sword-shaped foliage that grows in clumps along small, rambling vines. It&#;s striking as a hanging plant and has a unique dusty-rose color pallet. Higher light causes redder hues.

The midsized, three-inch long foliage is highly individualistic, but the basic pattern is flat or gray-green leaves with silver mottling. The blooms are a tasteful beige or brown; the flowers look like cookie batter formed and ready for baking. They have a slight caramel fragrance.

As an epiphyte, Hoya sigillatis is prone to root rot and needs well-draining, airy soil. It likes strong light and does well under artificial illumination.

This trendy species is not usually available in garden centers but isn&#;t hard to track down online. There are several similar varieties of this special Hoya; for example, the Hoya sp. UT has differently colored blooms and completely lacks silver variegation.

Looking to get your feet wet with hoya plants? Hoyas are gorgeous and easy to care for, and there are a TON of different varieties. Here are 9 hoya varieties for beginners that are sure to help jumpstart your hoya collection!

9 hoya varieties that are perfect for beginners!

Hey all! I realized I have quite a few hoya care posts on here, so I figured I’d round them all up into one place. I do not consider myself a hoya fanatic, but I do love a good easy plant, and I have a few varieties I love.

If you’re looking to start learning more about hoya plants and want to add some to your collection, there are a few I recommend getting started with. And the best part—not only are they gorgeous, they are pretty easy.

What are hoya plants and are they good for beginners?

Before we get started, a quick primer on hoya plants. “Hoya” is a large genus of tropical plants that are native to Asia and can also be found in Australia. There are hundreds of Hoya species, and many can be super expensive and super hard to find.

Many varieties, though, are really easy to find. And they are also really easy to care for, making them a good choice for beginner plant lovers. If you’re browsing a local nursery or garden center, hoyas might be labeled things like “wax plant” or “wax vine.” I find they are generally just labeled something like “assorted hoya.” Drives me nuts because I like to learn about exactly what I’m getting.

In general, hoyas climb and vine—but instead of the leafy look that many other viners have, hoyas generally have thick, succulent-like leaves. Hoyas have gorgeous little star-shaped, porcelain-looking flowers. They generally grow pretty slowly, but it’s worth the wait.

Here are 9 of my favorite hoya varieties for beginners that I own and love.

1. Hoya carnosa jade

You have to get the hoya carnosa out of the way first in any list of hoya varieties for beginners. The regular ol’ hoya carnosa jade has gorgeous thick green leaves and has been a houseplant staple for decades. It does well in medium to bright indirect light and hates being overwatered.

While the carnosa likes humidity, it does really well in normal household temperatures. Trails beautifully, so it looks good hanging from the ceiling or up on a shelf. This is probably the most common variety you’ll find. See my hoya carnosa care guide post for more.

2. Hoya carnosa krimson queen

The hoya carnosa krimson queen is a type of carnosa, but I want to call it and a few other types of carnosa out specifically because they are gorgeous and I love them. &#; I got my hoya carnosa krimson queen from a local nursery. It’s been a very slow grower but is gorgeous!

Pretty much the same requirements as the carnosa, but keep in mind that the most white variegation a plant has, the more light it might need. The white parts don’t photosynthesize. The white clumps are stunning, but don’t be shocked when they dye off. &#;

You could also consider a hoya carnosa krimson princess, but I don’t personally have one. They are very similar, though. The main difference is that the princess tends to have a green border around its leaves, while the queen has a creamy white border.

3. Hoya carnosa Chelsea

And another carnosa…the hoya carnosa Chelsea! This is my most recently acquired hoya. My friend snagged it for me at Home Depot or Lowe’s, I can’t remember. It’s already trailing beautifully, and I’m planning to take it outside this year.

The leaves on the Chelsea are a bit rounder and have a bit of a crinkle look to them. They are also thick and juicy <3 Again, since it’s a carnosa, care is really simple. Don’t overwater. Medium to bright indirect light. Humidity is a plus. See my hoya carnosa Chelsea care and propagation post.

4. Hoya carnosa compacta

The last carnosa I’ll cover. Honestly, I always separate out the carnosa compacta because it looks so different from the carnosa. Otherwise known as a “rope plant,” the leaves curl and twist on the stem, creating a knotted “rope” look.

These plants grow sooooo slow, but they are undeniably gorgeous. My hoya carnosa compacta is probably one of my favorite plants. They look nice trailing, but they are also really interesting-looking when they are small. See my hoya carnosa compacta care guide post for more.

5. Hoya pubicalyx splash

For the longest time I thought that the hoya pubicalyx splash was a type of carnosa. They do have a lot of similarities, but they are different. The pubicalyx’s leaves are a bit longer and, I’ve found, thinner than the carnosa’s. 

However, they grow just as beautifully, vining up and down. Double-decker vining, gotta love it. I’m only a little bit salty that my mom and I got ours at the same time and hers has like, tripled in size. See my hoya pubicalyx care guide post for more.

6. Hoya australis

Hoya australis plants have very shiny, slightly rounder leaves that tend to vine up more than they vine down. The stems intertwine to create really cool growth patterns, even without a trellis. Though they certainly appreciate a trellis.

Mine is pretty small, and I have it on a feather trellis I got from my friend Delaney at Plants and Lasers. I often see them sold in hanging baskets, but since they don’t seem to trail down as much, I think I prefer them as tabletop plants with a cool trellis. See my hoya australis care guide post for more.

7. Hoya curtisii

Hoya curtisii is a gorgeous trailing hoya with gorgeous silverish speckled splashes. The leaves are shaped like tiny teardrops and cascade down the pot. It’s very easy to propagate, and it trails beautifully! Learn how to care for a propagate hoya curtisii.

8. Hoya obovata

Hoya obovata grows a lot like hoya kerrii, except the leaves are round. They are so cool-looking, too! I ordered my plant online because I rarely see them locally, and it isn’t really vining yet. But it will! And that will be a glorious day. It also has a speckled “splash” on the leaves. See my hoya obovata guide post for more.

9. Hoya linearis

And let’s wrap up with the hoya linearis. This hoya is unlike all of the other hoyas in this roundup in that its leaves aren’t big, thick, and juicy. Instead, they are about an inch long and thin. They grow pretty densely on the stem, though, so they create a curtain effect.

I think this plant really shines when it is full and mature. Hoya linearis is the only one in this list that I have found to be somewhat on the picky size. The leaves will dry out if humidity is too low, so I keep mine in a bathroom that has a window. I also hang it so that light will shine down on it to avoid the top going bald &#;

This plant is increasing in popularity right now, so you might see prices on it jacked way way up while you’re shopping. To give you guys an idea of what to expect, I found my pot at a local plant shop. The first picture below was taken right after I purchased it, and it was $ I thought that was a great deal. See my hoya linearis care guide post for more.
