With curls that are easy-going, slow-growing, and long living, what’s not to like about the Hoya carnosa compacta? Native to India, it’s also known as the Hindu rope. Give it the right conditions, be patient and it will bloom clusters of light pink flowers for you. Growing it in a kokedama ensures that its roots are not water-logged, as it doesn’t like sitting in wet soil. Comes with string for hanging. This plant is grown in a kokedama, a ‘living pot’ of coconut husk that is then covered in a coconut fibre.
