Hoya rosita was created by joining two other Hoyas, Hoya tsangii and Hoya wayetii, and it brings together the best of both plants. Its long oval leaves are just a bit glossy, and tipped with just a bit of maroon at the tips. Its flowers are also a dark, reddish-maroon color with yellow tips and these are hardy enough to last the whole growing season.
Like most other members of the Hoya family, the Hoya rosita is an air-plant, meaning that in nature, it grows on other plants without the need for lots of dense soil. Its leaves are of the succulent variety, which also means that it doesn’t need much water, since it usually keeps its own store of it. Bright, indirect sunlight is a must, however, if you want the flowers to grow. And, unlike most houseplants, this one can tolerate a bit of direct sun every now and then as well.
With its charming flowers and climbing vines, this pretty plant is a great one for decorating your yard or indoor space. It prefers to live most of its life in one pot, with a new pot only needed every couple of years or if there is a major problem, which makes it a great plant for both veteran gardeners and green ones.

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.
