Buy Hoya carnosa 'Krimson Queen' wax plant / wax flower: Lustrous variegated foliage and clusters of waxy pink flowers

  • Position: bright indirect light
  • Soil: freely draining
  • Rate of growth: average to fast
  • Hardiness: tender (indoors only)
  • Current height: approximately 15cm (including pot)
  • Pot covers: choose a 14cm pot cover to give a good fit over the pot

    Cream and green variegated foliage, which has a fleshy texture, forms along the length of the lax stems of this beautiful climber. In time, domed clusters of waxy pink flowers may also appear, and these usually emit a sweet perfume in the evening. The plant is sent out without any flowers, but it looks great popped into a decorative pot cover and placed on a shelf. Alternatively, you could re-pot it into a hanging basket and let the stems cascade.

  • Home care: Throughout the summer you should always keep the soil moist but not waterlogged. In the colder months water less often, just giving it a good drink when the soil gets reasonably dry. Mist the leaves with water, especially if they are growing near central heating and apply a balanced liquid fertiliser at monthly intervals while the plant is actively growing. Maintain temperatures above 10C in winter
