Hoya carnosa 'Chelsea', with its distinctively cupped deep green waxy heart-shaped leaves, is a stunning cultivar. Especially thick and waxy, the foliage emerges from long vines that are tinged with pink when fresh. Exceedingly hard to find, Hoya 'Chelsea' is a collector's Hoya, but just as forgiving and easy to care for as most other members of the genus. Eventually, this vigorous grower produces clusters of pink, star-shaped waxy flower with a darker eye.
Easy to grow & don't require much attention. Hoya do best in filtered light or with lots of artificial light in indoors.
Hoya plants don't ask for much, beyond the well-draining soil and the warm humid conditions ((similar to bromeliads and orchids)
They are epyphite, can be grown in orchid medium or light potting mix with lots of bark conditioner. Hoya like the security of a snug pot, and plants that are a bit root bound will flower more prolifically than those that are swimming around in a giant pot.
This plant is attractive to bees, butterflies and/or birds .
It makes a nice hanging basket, but also does really well as a mounted plant
