Hoya shepherdii - String Bean Hoya
Hoya shepherdii is one of the most fascinating members of the genus. With its elongated, dark green leaves that look just like runner beans, Hoya shepherdii often goes by its fitting nickname, the String Bean Hoya. An ideal hanging plant, Hoya shepherdii grows long, pendulous vines, cascading down the sides of the pot from the weight of the thick, waxy foliage. Eventually, your String Bean Hoya may reward you with clusters of star-shaped, sweet-smelling flowers. One of the simplest Hoyas we grow, with all the allure of a collector's plant.
Place your String Bean Hoya where it will receive bright indirect light. Like al "wax plants," H. shepherdii is drought tolerant, and only needs to be watered when the top 1-2" of soil feel dry to the touch.
Ships in a 6" plastic nursery pot. Each specimen has multiple vining stems, approximately 5-8" in length; leaves measure about 3-5" long. Some natural variation in size and appearance may occur.
Hand thrown ceramic planter sold separately. Includes detailed care instructions.
