While all Hoya plants are named after botanist Thomas Hoy, this particular Hoya’s name can tell us even more about it. "Rotundiflora" means “rounded flowers,” which is one of the best features of this long-vined specimen. Every spring and summer, several clusters of rounded, star-shaped flowers bloom amongst the Hoya rotundiflora’s rectangular green leaves. These fuzzy flowers are not only pretty, but they also put off a rich, sweet smell, especially in the evening hours.
Hoya rotunda is easy to care for, as it doesn’t require much watering. Hailing from Thailand, its leaves are of the succulent variety, so they hold water for a while after you water the roots. Loose, well-draining potting soil is recommended to encourage drainage, as is a nitrogen-rich fertilizer during the growing season. Repotting isn’t necessary unless the roots are becoming very compacted. In fact, this is one plant that would prefer its roots be bunched up as opposed to moving to a new pot every year!
The vines of the Hoya rotunda can grow up to six feet in length, making this a great one for a hanging basket. You could also plant it directly in the yard, but be advised that a touch of frost or prolonged low temperatures can be a death sentence!

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.
