Effective February 1, 2024

 

This winter (2024) it is becoming increasingly common for the transit time of our shipments to take much longer than desirable.

Unfortunately, 7 to 10 days are no longer an exception.

Despite our best efforts with insulation and heat packs, this takes far too long and the plants often do not survive the journey and arrive frozen at their destination.

Because we have no control over the practices and ethics of the various couriers, we have had to adjust our shipping routine.

There is simply no point in sending dead plants across the country. Of course, we also want to keep our ecological footprint (and unnecessary costs) as small as possible.

 

For the Northern States:

Beginning February 1, we will be postponing our current shipping routine until the end of March (or sooner if possible) for all orders from the Northern States.

We will continually check with the Weather Institute and resume shipping immediately as soon as weather permits.

This applies to zones 5, 6, 7 and the northern half of zone 4. (see zone map.)

 

For the Southern States:

For the Southern States, the shipping routine will remain as it is during the Winter months. So all year round.

This applies to zones 2, 3 and the Southern half of zone 4. (see zone chart.)

  • Botanical Name: Hoya carnosa

  • Common Name(s): Porcelain Flower, Wax Plant, Honey Plant

  • Description: Porcelain flower or wax plant is a commonly grown houseplant. It has long slender vines covered with waxy, deep green leathery leaves sometimes flecked with silver or creamy white. To make this plant appear denser, wrap its sparsely leaved stems around a bamboo trellis and secure with florist tape or nylon stocking strips. Bright indirect light year-round is ideal. Allow the soil to dry out between waterings. Wax plants love high humidity and the foliage appreciates misting. The flowers are star-shaped, in parachute-shaped clusters, with a sweet fragrance and may produce a sticky sap.


Care:

  • Light: Hoya plants do best and bloom more often in very bright light. They are one of the few indoor plants that can handle direct sun. Although hoya plants can adapt to lower light, they will grow slower and not produce their fragrant waxy flowers that are so beautiful.
  • Pet FriendlyYes
  • Water: Hoyas are succulent plants so allow the soil to dry out quite a bit before watering. These plants do thrive on neglect but need additional water when in bloom.
  • Humidity: Medium
  • TemperatureHoya plants can adapt to almost any moderate temperature, but prefer 60°-65° F at night and 70°-80° F during the day.
  • Difficult LevelEasy
