Please note that this plant will only flower in Australia or perhaps in a glass house if you happen to have one. Despite this, the Hoya Australis “Wax Vine” is a wonderful and attractive house plant.
The Wax Vine needs good light and temperatures between 18 and 24 degrees Celcius. They are quite sensitive to water, so require good drainage. It is possible to leave them in a small pot for much of their life but it is advised to fertilise them through spring and summer regularly.
