I found a HUGE Hindu Rope!!! What a find!

Hi all!

I went to a local nursery yesterday to see what bouganvillieas they had to offer. Since I'd never been there before I decided to look around after I found a small boug. As I walked into their houseplant and tropicals section I saw this huge hindu rope in a hanging basket. I have never seen one this big in real life! haha! Only through photos online. WOW! This is an amazing plant!

I just had to get it. I couldn't say no to that size and the price ($24.50) !!!!!!! :D

I have it about 3 or 4 feet away from an east facing window where it gets bright indirect morning sun for a few hours. I haven't watered it yet, I felt it this morning and its dry so I'll give it a drink.

Thanks for checking out my new plant!

Ashley, what a beautiful specimen. This is one I haven't found yet. The stores in my area don't seem to have a wide selection of hoyas at this time of year. Most of their hanging baskets are ivy, ferns and spider plants. When I visited Home Depot earlier today, they actually had some carnosa (KP) in 4" pots but mislabeled as alternanthera. I believe they were Exotic Angel plants.

Congratulations on your find.

These are turning up in Home Depot for $14.99 (Exotic Angel Plant)for the 14 inch basket and $9.99 for 9 inch. Also the 2 variegated ones are showing up.

Great find. Beautiful plant.
