Hoya coronaria Red

Subscription Save

The Hoya coronaria Red is a beautiful little Hoya from Indonesia, Thailand and Malaysia where it is found in mangrove swamps and lowland forest. It has medium sized oval leaves that terminate in a point to assist with water shedding. The leaves are a beautiful blue green. The real appeal of these plants are their large, (up to 5cm) star shaped, waxy red flowers. The flowers are produced in clusters of 8 and are strongly a good way!

This is a reasonably fast growing Hoya that is well suited to life indoors.

    Caring for your Hoya coronaria Red


    Like most Hoyas they can handle shade but if you want them to flower, and believe me, you want them to flower, they need bright light for a good portion of the day. Somewhere close to (but not too close) to a large north facing window is great!

    As they are from lowland areas of tropical countries they prefer consistently warm, humid conditions but they will tolerate the odd night down to 5 degrees celsius as long as they are kept reasonably dry.

    Managing Growth

    They are currently a single stem vine about 15-20cm long. Once roots become obvious on the soil surface they can be repotted into the next size pot. Be careful not to over pot as this will result in the plant staying too wet. Use a good quality cacti and succulent mix. They respond well to pruning during the warmer months.


    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. In a temperate climate Hoyas hate cold water sitting of the leaves and damp soggy soil through winter.

    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.
