A variety of hoya coveted for its miniature, near-black foliage and stems. Features tiny, forest green, spade-shaped leaves that are tinged aubergine in part or throughout. Wiry, dark purple stems. Many vines! Growth emerges in a dense carpet-like mat atop soil before producing long trails. Hoyas — aka "wax plants," thanks to their thick, waxy leaves — are among our favourite indoor houseplants. The species is relatively drought-tolerant, endures for years and often in the same pot, grows to epic proportions, propagates easily from cuttings, and produces recurring clusters of fragrant, star-shaped flowers in ideal growing conditions. Best suited to any small tabletop planter Bergs Potter. Prefers bright indirect to filtered sunlight. Avoid exposure to direct afternoon sun, as this may scorch and permanently damage leaves. Sensitive to overwatering.
