This Wax Plant is somewhat unique among the hoyas, as the tear-drop shaped leaves are smaller than other varieties and are a lightly speckled gray-green. Hoya 'Eskimo' may also be known as Hoya krohniana Silver, due to its leaf color, but whatever you call it, it's a must-have for hoya collectors. Allegedly a bit faster in growth than other varieties, 'Eskimo' may eventually grow to nine feet long. If too long for your tastes, cut the stems and root in water, then place back in the pot.
