The Hoya pubicalyx is a species that has been in cultivation for ages, your Grandma probably even had a few. That doesn't mean they're old lady plants though!

The Hoya pubicalyx are a very easy and rewarding species to grow. They continue to produce tiny pairs of leaves along their vining stems that get larger and larger until they are full size. New leaves often have a reddish tinge which is the result of a plant pigment named Anthocyanin being produced to protect young, soft leaves from strong light. These plants will also produce Anthocyanins in older leaves to protect them from strong light and cold.  They produce cricket ball shaped umbels of tightly clustered, star shaped flowers that are highly fragrant.

    Caring for your Hoya Pubicalyx

    Position

    Like most Hoyas they can handle shade but if you want them to flower, and believe me, you want them to flower, they need very bright light. A north facing window is the perfect position for most Hoyas.

    Managing Growth

    They will be between 20 to 50cm tall when they are delivered but will climb much higher. When they get a bit more advanced you can take stem cuttings. These will give you more plants as well as encouraging the original plant to branch giving it a bushier habit.

    Watering

    As a general rule, let the top 2-3cm of soil in the pot dry out before watering again in the growing season (Spring and Summer). In the colder months let them dry out much more before watering again. They are highly drought tolerant plants due to their waxy leaves and the photosynthetic pathway they use, so if your unsure hold off on the water.

    Our special eco packaging

    No Plant Stress

    Our plant packaging is designed by people know how to keep plants fresh and healthy in transit. Your plants will enjoy a comfortable trip directly from our greenhouse to your door in just a few of days. Your plant will not have to deal with the stress of being bare rooted for transport (how most plants are sent) and you won’t have to deal with the mess and fuss of potting up your new plant when you receive it.

    Stability Support

    The plastic pot will be wrapped in a calico bag to keep the soil in place, it will then be tied into a specially designed cardboard insert which will keep it stable and upright throughout its journey. The insert will be glued in place on top of your cardboard wrapped ceramic pot to hold it down and your plant up!

    No Re-Potting

    Your plant will come in its plastic pot which we make sure fits perfectly in whichever ceramic pot you choose. Our packaging has been designed to allow us to send your beautiful ceramic pot along with your plant, fully potted, yep in soil, together in the same box.

    Fully Recyclable

    The thing that we’re most proud of is that our packaging is fully recyclable and re-useable so you don’t have to feel bad about generating more packaging waste. In fact you should feel awesome because ordering from us, online, will generate way less emissions than if you were to drive to the nursery to buy a plant. The only plastic you get will be the plastic pot that your plant comes in and these can be re-used or recycled.
