Hoya carnosa, commonly known as Wax Plant or Porcelain Flower, is a popular indoor plant native to Southeast Asia. It grows as a climbing vine in its natural habitat, but can be grown as a hanging or trailing plant indoors.
The leaves of Hoya carnosa are thick and fleshy, and typically oval-shaped with a glossy, dark green color. The flowers are small and star-shaped, typically arranged in clusters known as umbels. The flowers have a waxy texture and come in shades of white, pink, and red with a sweet fragrance.
This plant can grow up to several feet long, and its trailing habit makes it a great choice for hanging baskets or training on a trellis. It's a low-maintenance plant that's perfect for beginners or those who don't have a lot of time to dedicate to plant care.
