Hoya parasitica ‘Black Margin’ is a new wax plant variety with green textured, oval leaves with pointy tips and really cool dark purplish-almost black margins. It can produce clusters of creamy white flowers that are highly fragrant.
Like most hoyas, these plants like to dry out a bit between watering. When the soil is dry and it's time to water, you should thoroughly soak the potting media. Water until all the soil is saturated and all excess water drains away through the drainage hole. ALWAYS plant Hoya in pots with drainage holes! You can water even less in the winter when growing slows (and sometimes halts).
Hoya like to be root-bound. You should not place them in a huge pot. When it is time to repot, go up only one pot size. Hoya want a quick draining soil - use a light and airy potting mix, such as cactus and succulent soil, with added perlite or pumice for increased drainage.
Light: Bright indirect light/dappled sun, a few hours of morning light is great
Water: Water well when soil is mostly dry. Loves humidity - mist frequently!
