Popular 1970s Houseplant Is Making A Major Comeback

When it comes to decorating your home, it is always a good idea to include some plants. The problem is, which plants are the best choice? After all, there are so many choices out there but if you haven’t considered a hoya, you might want to give it a second look. It used to be popular in the 70s but now it is making the rounds again.

The hoya, also known as the wax plant is a succulent that is known by it’s fuzzy or shiny leaves. You can grow it in a traditional container but a hanging basket is also a great choice.

The low-maintenance plant is great if you don’t have a green thumb. Just add it to your home and try to remember it every once in a while.

The only problem is the fragrance. Not everyone appreciates a strong-smelling plant so if you do, just grow it outside.

Each variety of hoya has a different colored leaf.

One popular option is the Tricolor Hoya with pink, white, and green leaves.

The star-shaped flowers of the Shooting Stars Hoya make it a popular option.

Perhaps the twisted rope look of the Hindu rope plant is more to your liking.

‘Fixer Upper’ star Joanna Gaines is now offering a hoya in with the other houseplants at her store. She offers free shipping on the plant, which sells for $26.99.
