Hoya compacta 'Krinkle 8'

Subscription Save

This stunning Hoya has medium sized deep-green to red leaves that are undulate with a tendency to cup. The new foliage is a deep red which turns coppery then deep-green as it matures.

These beauties are one of the easiest Hoyas to care for and if given enough light they will reward you with clusters of lightly scented flowers.

Caring for your Hoya compacta 'Krinkle 8'


Like most Hoyas they can handle shade but if you want them to flower, and you do want them to flower, they need sufficient periods of bright light (at least a few hours each day). 

Managing Growth

A naturally compact Hoya (as their latin name suggests) they are currently about 30cm long but will get to about a metre long when mature. When they get a bit more advanced you can take stem cuttings which will give you more plants as well as encouraging the original plant to branch giving it a bushier habit.


As a general rule, let the top 1-2 cm 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.

For more detailed care information, please refer to the our Plant Care Guides.

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.


Please note, due to quarantine restrictions on plants and soil, we are not able to deliver plants to WA, NT and TAS.
