Hoyas are a genus of approximately 300 species, native to mostly tropical areas around the world. Australia, also has our fair share of species. They are known for their almost ‘waxy’ looking leaves and their stunning clusters of flowers. Like so many other plants these days, they are grown just as much for their foliage, as their flowers. The leaf shapes, textures, sizes and colours are almost endless and has made this species a favourite amongst many plant lovers. RHIPSALIS; is a genus of epiphytic flowering plants in the cactus family, typically known as mistletoe cacti. Epiphytic plants, are usually found in moist tropical areas, where they generally grow on the surface of another plant, such as the understory of a tree. It derives it’s moisture and nutrients from the air, rain, and from debris accumulating around it. They are native to Central and Southern America and have over 35 different species. They too, have magnificent shapes, colours and textures. They will produce small flowers and also small berries but are usually not grown for these. DISCHIDIAS; are also epiphytic plants in the Apocynaceae family. They are native to tropical areas of China, India and most areas of Indo-China. They are closely aligned with Hoyas, just not as well known. They are also grown for their exotic looking leaves and structure. Most are trailing and cascade beautifully. A very worthy ‘specimen; house plant.
