Hoya Callistophylla is an evergreen climbing plant found in Malaysia, Thailand, and the island of Borneo. It is characterized by thick, lanceolate leaves and dark green veins.
During its growing seasons in spring and summer, the plant sprouts clusters of small, star-shaped flowers at the apex of its peduncles. Like a miniature tropical bouquet, the flowers are pale yellow to orange in color, with bright red tips on each petal.
Hoya Callistophylla thrives best under bright, indirect sunlight. Due to the plant’s succulent nature, you only need to water it once or twice a week. Check that the upper 1 to 2 inches of the soil is dry before doing so. For the potting mix, you can use peat moss mixed with perlite to provide good aeration.
This climber can reach a great height of 9 to 16 feet. Its leaves can grow up to 9 inches in length. You can provide a totem to help support the plant as it grows upwards.
Alternatively, you can simply plant Hoya Callistophylla in a hanging basket or pot. The display of vines trailing loosely downwards creates a beautiful, tranquil effect as well.

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.
