Hoya compacta features waxy, rope-like growth as the leaves come in to form a tight, twisted, connected trail. Since this houseplant is succulent-like, it can go long periods without water — which makes it a low-maintenance plant. Under the preferred conditions of bright sunlight, warmth, and water requirements, this Hoya can bloom clusters of star-shaped, light pink flowers.
