Wax Plant 'Rebecca' Overview
Hoya 'Rebecca' is commonly known as Wax Plant 'Rebecca'. This evergreen perennial cultivar was produced from a cross between the plants Hoya lacunosa 'Langkawi Island' and Hoya obscura. Wax Plants may be trained on small trellises or pruned to keep it small and neat. The flowers give off a strong, fragrant, sweet scent. This shrubby plant is an epiphytic. The flowers are produced in umbels of star-shaped, white, scented blooms which are borne in the summer. In summer they should be placed in a sunny position but protected from direct sunlight as they can get scorched. They like to be in a humid environment so regular watering is needed. They can be watered a lot less in winter and left to almost completely dry out but should still be placed in a sunny position or under light.
