Hoya is a huge plant genus. Most come from South-East Asia. Some grow very fast while others grow very slow. But most will bear gorgeous flowers with an amazing scent. We ship well rooted cuttings in 100% sterile coco husk. Buy also this great book about Hoya, signed just for you by both authors:
Plant delivery from Thailand disclaimer
Please note that all plants are delivered from Thailand. Most countries have some strict custom rules on letting the plants in. Those rules are aimed to protect the wild flora of the export country (Thailand) as well as not letting plant diseases into the import country (your country). We can absolutely assure that all shipped plants are healthy and nursery grown only (no wild plants) and are shipped legally from Thailand. However the package will not be marked to contain plants. Otherwise it would be inevitably stopped and destroyed by your customs. Unfortunately custom rules on plant export are practically impossible to follow for small private buyers. By ordering you acknowledge and accept the risk of the package to be destroyed by the custom services of your country as well as possible inappropriate handling of the package by your mail service. Each order will receive the tracking number.
