The Rope Plant Hoya is a vining succulent native to east Asia and Australia and can live for many years. This type of plant is great for novice houseplant owners because it doesn’t require much care. During the spring and summer, this plant produces fragrant clusters of pink, waxy flowers. This species is known for its waxy, curly foliage and striking pink blooms. It can be found in solid green or with variegated leaves. Rope Plant Hoya is easy to care for as long as it gets adequate light and doesn’t get overwatered. This plant goes by many names including Hoya carnosa ‘Compacta’, Hoya carnosa ‘Krinkle Kurls’, Hindu Rope, Porcelain Flower, Wax Plant, Honey Plant and Krinkle Kurl.

Best Locations For Growing Rope Plant Hoya 

The Rope Plant Hoya looks great in hanging baskets or on an elevated shelf. It drapes down just like living rope and will look great in any bright spot in your home. Place it two or three feet away from a south-facing window, or near an east- or west-facing window.

Rope Plant Hoya Sunlight Requirements

Avoid direct light with this plant and instead ensure that it gets adequate bright indirect light. Bright indirect light will produce the best growth and blooms. Preferably, the Rope Plant Hoya should get at least 6 hours of sunlight daily. 

Rope Plant Hoya Care

Rope Plant Hoyas prefers warm temperatures and high humidity to ensure lush foliage and continuous flowers. Protect your plant from temperatures below 50 degrees Fahrenheit. Mist your Hoya with water to boost humidity levels. The soil for your plant should be fast draining as hoya roots need good air circulation. You can improve your soil’s aeration by adding perlite or use an orchid potting soil blend.

Watering Rope Plant Hoya 

Allow the top two to three inches of soil to completely dry out before watering your Hoya. It is a semi-succulent plant and can live with less water. When watering, allow the excess water to drain out and don’t let the plant sit in water. Pull back on watering in the winter when growth slows. Check to see if you need to increase the humidity in the winter when heaters are running. 

Feeding Rope Plant Hoya 

To ensure that your Rope Plant Hoya creates continuous blooms and lush foliage, you should fertilize on a regular basis. During the spring and summer months, use a light dose of a potassium-rich fertilizer about every 3 to 4 weeks. There is generally no need to fertilize this plant in the winter when growth slows.

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.


If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!


Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
