The lady i bought the plants off said this plant is a slow grower is she right? Its very small at the moment and only has one vine and its still growing upright?
A photo is worth a lot in words.
im thinking this young plant is in to big a pot as it is quite small, if i water less,should it be alright in the same pot?
I once had a small Hoya Compacta variegated. That thing got mealies and I finally got rid of them. Then I gave this hoya to my SIL who kept it in her garden window. It didn't do anything, so I'd say yes, it's a slow grower.
The varigated forms are much slower than the all green one, but yes...they are slower than a lot of other types of hoyas. Mine also does not like to dry out very much.
ok cool thanks for the info yay spring is on the way hope my plants grow well his year
OK, so we're talking about Hoya carnosa "compacta" there used to be a mislabeled plant called hoya compacta but I thought the name was discontinued, but when I saw it again, I wasn't sure any more.
yeah the curly one
I have 3 of them, green and both variegated. I have t disagree with opinion of them as slow growers. At least for me. It's true that they seem not to grow much in lenght during season, but mine produce much more leaves than any other of my hoyas. One thing, it took them ages to establish and start growth but once they did - it's madness. All of them at least doubled their size this season. New leaves are much bigger and fleshier than old ones (this is their first growing season so all the old leaves come from the nursery).
I dare say they like it a bit cooler then warmer. Seems to do them good apparently
