DESCRIPTION
Exhibiting an undeniable charm, the Hoya Carnosa 'Chelsea' is an enchanting houseplant hailing from the tropical regions of East Asia. Its foliage displays an impressive palette of deep emerald green, made even more appealing by the thick, waxy texture of its leaves, which take on a heart-like shape. When nurtured, the plant can reach up to 4 feet in length, offering a dramatic cascade of greenery that is sure to captivate. In hanging baskets or tall pots, the Hoya Carnosa 'Chelsea' becomes a natural curtain of foliage, while when potted traditionally, it will create a dense, bush-like display. It is known for its slow yet rewarding growth, offering a delightful journey for plant enthusiasts. One of the unique aspects of this plant is its ability to develop aerial roots, which appear like tiny tendrils shooting from the stems, seeking attachment. These roots are an inherent part of the plant's tropical nature, allowing it to anchor itself to trees and other supports in its natural habitat. Adding to its charm, Hoya Carnosa 'Chelsea' has an exciting surprise in store for its caretakers. In the warmer months, expect a breathtaking spectacle as it produces clusters of star-shaped, creamy white flowers, each adorned with a burgundy center. These sweetly scented blooms open during the night, filling the air with a captivating aroma that's reminiscent of a warm summer evening. The Hoya Carnosa 'Chelsea' is more than just a houseplant; it's a botanical spectacle that offers a journey of growth, transformation, and blooming beauty. It's the perfect choice for those who enjoy a slow, rewarding gardening experience and appreciate the stunning display of foliage and flowers.
PLANT SIZING & APPEARANCE

Plant sizing is based on the diameter of the nursery pot (2", 2.5", 3", 4" etc), not the plant itself. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grow in depending on availability or time of year. While we do our best to ship plants as similar to those pictured as possible, please keep in mind that all plants are unique from one to the next, and display color, shape, and growth variation based on current environment, time of year, and other contributing factors. Please note that we ship our plants as dry as possible in the fall and winter months to prevent root rot or freezing. They will plump back up after planting!
