pubicalyx Bright One

Average Rating 4.9 out of 5

A pick for my bundle of 3 hoyas.

My new baby arrived in absolutely perfect condition, despite the deliverer not heeding the "fragile" sticker. The foliage is a beautiful glossy, light green with some silvery flecks. I am quite excited to nurture this babe to maturity and see her flower.

Patently Waiting

I purchased this Hoya over a year ago. I expected it to be an easy grower as the description claims. I don't think mine has grown more than 1/2". I've tried natural indirect light and bright artificial light. So far, nothing is working. The plant is very healthy looking. I wish I knew how to help it get moving.

Hearty & Happy

I've enjoyed this plant for many years and find this particular vine very hearty and happy, easily adapting between being outdoors during our warmer months and wintering indoors. The flowers are aromatic and colorful... it is always exciting to see the flower start to form and then develop into these little balls of lovely colors. I highly recommend this plant for anyone who likes a vine with deep green leaves and lovely flowers.

Easy to take care

It looks full and very easy to care for. Especially beautiful when it starts blooming

Can’t wait for this one to bloom!

Arrived in excellent condition and oh, so carefully packaged, as always! Can’t wait for this one to mature and bloom.

I love my hoyas!

Whenever I see these guys I always snap them up! I love gardening, but sometimes flip flop from too much 'love' (watering) to neglect if I'm working on a project. These guys put up with my flakiness like champs! Definitely a favorite.

Great Plant!

I love my wax plant. It is a hearty plant, very forgiving. I've enjoyed mine for sixteen years. The blooms look like something from another world.

Must have!

I can't say enough about the flowers on Hoyas! You have to see them to believe them. And the foliage is pretty and hearty, it's hard to mess these guys up! *

Took a bit of time to perk up

I purchased this hoya in February and it sure struggled to acclimate. 3 months later it chose life, and just plumped up it leaves and put out some new growth after a root wash and trim. My other pubicalyx varieties from Violet Barn have grown beautifully in that time, but Bright One struggled to find its legs. Hoping it will thrive with my other beloved hoyas!

Answer to my DREAMS

Super excited about this Hoya. Bought 3 others and they all were shipped in pristine condition. Not a single broken leaf and weren't dehydrated. Thanks!!! Can't wait to add more to my collection

Love the speckled leaves

This hoya is brand new to me. It arrived lovingly packaged and in perfect shape. I love the speckled, long leaves. It is such an interesting plant and I can't wait to watch it grow!

I had this one and loved it. It grew very large in my bay window. The flowers were so beautiful. I can’t wait to grow another.

I received this hoya along with two others and I love it! I can't believe how perfectly they were all packed! The leaves are gorgeous. I would definitely order from here again!

Cute little gem

I just love this plant. It's tiny but packs a big punch with it's mottled leaves. It hasn't bloomed yet but is happy & healthy. This was my first time buying hoyas onine & just placed another order here today. Thanks for such beautiful plants.

Mary Montgomery Feb 18 2017, 15:31 PM

Very Healthy

This little gem is growing beautifully. It arrived last week and was lovingly packaged. I have no doubt that it will bring lovely blooms.

1st bloom

I bought this plant a few years back and it just bloomed 2 days ago. WELL worth the wait for it to bloom, and it does have a pleasant smell. Will definitely add more hoya's to my plant collection

Great Plant

My plant just arrived last week!! I ordered four different ones. All arrived in outstanding condition! Although I can't comment about the flower itself but I do love the silver marks on the leaves, I can say plant looks great, packaging was great and I ordering 3 more types today! Thanks Violet Barn!!!

Bright One

I really love this hoya. It was a slow grower at first but once I found the correct lighting then just took off and filled the pot. It won't be long until I get some flowers...almost can't wait! This company is really good to do business with, really nice plants & the packaging & shipping is so great.

pubicalyx Bright One

A friend of mine has this plant and it always impressed me that every time I went to her house this plant was in bloom! This will be my second order from the violet barn and they are just awesome! The shipping is also outstanding

Great Plant

I have had this particular plant for many years. It seems no matter what happens to it the hoya will just keep growing. It is also easy to propagate with old or new growth. I always enjoy it near my window and love seeing it bloom. A great plant for those with a black or green thumb and I would recommend it to anyone.

Foolproof and wonderful!

You really, truly, cannot kill this plant! No plant should have to withstand the kind of abuse mine went through when I got it, but this survived all even though it should have been dead years ago. It's getting good care now, and the blooms are absolutely lovely! Their fragrance fills a whole room. I discovered the first blooms by the fragrance - walked into the room and wondered what that lovely scent was, and where from. Imagine my delight when I discovered my hoya blooming! This plant sold me on hoyas forever. Now I have three different varieties... love them all... but this is hardiest and endearing.

Quick Grower

I have this hoya, that I have been wicking for the past month, it is growing so quickly, won't be long before I have flowers. The Violet Barn has some really interesting plants. I love being introduced to all that they offer.
