Suitable Terrarium Plants -H

Hoya carnosa f. compacta ‘Krinkle Kurl’

hoya_carnosa_f-_compacta_krinkle_kurl_-_hindu_rope_plant_josh_s_frogs_c

Origin- Southern India

Lighting –

Water – once per week or when soil is almost dry

Soil- succulent soil

This succulent is not reccommended for vivariums as it prefers much dryer soil than a terrarium can provide, however if you have a desert tank, this plant may thrive.  As a houseplant it is considered an easy to keep and care for plant.  This plant will bloom in spring and summer with many small star shaped flowers that are deep pink in color.  A mature rope vine can reach 1.5-2″ wide and up to 20 feet long, however this would take a very long time to achieve that length.
