What other plant parents say
This wax plant brings me so much joy. It’s super low maintenance- doesn’t need bright sun or frequent watering. It’s leaves are so lush looking and have these gorgeous marbled variations of color.
I had this plant for 2 years, I think I plant it in the wrong pot because it us not growing, I need to repot it in a good drainage.
Very easy to take care of and very pretty! Don’t chop off ends with no leaves, it may flower later
I love all varieties of Hoya. They grow best in small snug pots and vine out beautifully!
i’ve had this wax plant for years, and love how low maintenance it is 🥰
Pretty plant, grows really fast
How to care for Waxplant
Waxplant needs 0.5 cups of water every 12 when it doesn’t get direct sunlight and is potted in a 5" pot.
Use our water calculator to personalize watering recommendations to your environment or download Greg for more advanced recommendations for all of your plants.
Waxplant may have difficulty thriving, and will drop leaves 🍃, without ample sunlight.
Place it less than 3 feet from a south-facing window to maximize the potential for growth.
Select your city to see how the current weather in your area affects the placement of Waxplant in your home 🏡.
Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
By the time your plant has depleted the nutrients in its soil it’s likely grown enough to need a larger pot anyway.
To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your Waxplant after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
