Also Hoya carnosa 'Compacta', Hoya carnosa 'Monstruosa'. Not a natural phenomenon as it appeared in cultivation.

In my oppion Hoya compacta is not only best grown on a trellis, it is the only way as it doesn't twine or climb at all. It is possible to wrap it around a trellis but it won't stay there without help.

Despite Hoya compacta having fleshy leaves it doesn't like to run dry. I find it looking best if kept moist at all times. I grow it in a self watering pot.

Hoya compacta likes light but no direct sunlight. Window facing south is ok, but keep it sheltered from the burning sun.
