Hoya Krohniana ‘Super Eskimo’ is a vine plant that originated from the Philippines. Its green, ovate foliage is heavily speckled with white and silver. The leaves feel thick and waxy to the touch.
During its growing seasons, the plant produces clusters of white flowers with a light-yellow center. The blooms last about 4 to 5 days and emit a mild fragrance.
This specimen enjoys bright, indirect sunlight and grows best in an airy potting mix. You can use a combination of orchid soil, peat, and perlite. Water the plant around once or twice a week. Remember to check that the upper 2 inches of soil is dry to prevent overwatering the semi-succulent plant.
During the warm weathers of spring and summer, fertilize the Super Eskimo twice a month to encourage flower growth. As an epiphyte, it is comfortable remaining rootbound. This means that you do not need to repot it frequently. The mature plant can reach up to 3 to 6.5 feet in length.
Hoya Krohniana ‘Super Eskimo’ silver-white markings give a sense of grace and stillness. It is a gorgeous indoor plant to have in a hanging basket or pot.

We ship from Los Angeles, and we only ship within the United States. We do not ship to Hawaii / Canada / International. We typically ship on Mondays or Tuesdays to avoid plants being stuck in transit over the weekends, but we may sometimes ship later in the week depending on order volume. With that said, we cannot guarantee or control delivery time. If delivery time is a concern, please opt for upgraded shipping.
We take great care when packaging and preparing your plants for shipment. They'll be shipped either in a nursery pot in soil or sphagnum moss, or shipped bare root wrapped in sphagnum moss or other damp material to retain moisture. We also add poly-fil around the plant for padding, then wrap it in bubble wrap, and finally add packing peanuts for extra cushion to ensure a safe and clean transport.
We also offer local pick-up if you're in the Los Angeles area.
