About Variegated Hoya Rope

Variegated Hoya Rope

The Variegated Hoya Rope, known scientifically as Hoya carnosa 'Compacta Variegata', is celebrated for its beautiful, twisted vines and striking variegated leaves. This unique specimen, with its green and white foliage, often blooms with sweetly scented flowers, providing not only a visual but also an olfactory delight. Easy to care for and requiring minimal attention, the Variegated Hoya Rope is an excellent choice for both novice and experienced plant enthusiasts looking to add a touch of exoticness to their indoor garden.

Care Instructions

Lighting

Variegated Hoya Rope thrives in bright, indirect light. It can tolerate some direct morning or late afternoon sun, but prolonged exposure to harsh sunlight can fade its variegation.

Watering

Water when the top few inches of soil feel dry. Hoyas prefer to dry out slightly between waterings. Overwatering can lead to root rot, so ensure good drainage.

Temperature and Humidity

This plant prefers warmer conditions, ideally between 60°F and 80°F, and enjoys high humidity. However, it's quite adaptable and can tolerate average home humidity levels.

Feeding

Feed with a diluted, balanced fertilizer every 4-6 weeks during the growing season. Reduce feeding in the cooler months to allow the plant to rest.
