Hobbes's survival guide

ISO: the meaning of life

Hobbes doesn’t do small talk. He’s got layers baby and he’s not afraid to show them. If you’re in the mood to debate the origins of Western thought or listen to a lecture on human consciousness, our Hobbes is the plant for you. He may be a bit slow to grow, but when he sets his mind to something he does it with purpose. Hobbes is a trailing plant whose leaves are slightly dark around the edges. We think that’s what gives him his depth of character and we’re here for it. A key figure in the age of enlightenment, Hobbes is a huge fan of bright indirect light and stimulating conversation. He’s not a heavy drinker either, which is a plus in our books!

How to care for Hobbes

The Hoya wayetii is also known as the wax plant or the porcelain flower plant. Why, you may ask? It’s cuz Hobbes here has been known to produce sweet-smelling clusters of flowers in the springtime and it sure is a sight to behold. Don’t be too sad if your green amigo doesn’t bloom in the first year, it may take him some time to acclimate to the new digs. Other than that, Hobbes is a pretty easy going guy. Give your Hoya wayetii as much bright, indirect light as possible and let his soil dry out between waterings. He also loooooves humidity and will #thrive hanging in a well-lit bathroom. Talk about making a statement!

Our Care App will help you after your purchase.

Got a gift card for my birthday in the gift box (Fred the air plant was much larger than expected!) and after much though and deliberation given how large their assortment is, chose three plants to order. All three arrived earlier than expected and in fairly good condition, in very well planned packaging that even included a heat pack. They were a bit smushed but they seemed healthy - no pests - and are doing well now. The only problem I had was with just how full the pots were which made them a bit difficult to transport and water especially since they were pretty large given their pot size; definitely have to repot them within the year. Oh and the ceramic pot I ordered as well came and looks very cute! It's a touch small for their nursery pots, they fit inside but with a bit of a lip over the top, but otherwise look great. Definitely would recommend and plan on buying more in the future :D Read less

I ordered 2 plants in late January 2022 which were posted to me in the Okanagan. They arrived within a couple days with a heat pack that was still emitting heat. They were well packed and look healthy. Thanks for the gift of green in the dark of winter! Read less

So stoked on our order! It came in quick, in great conditions and the plants are lovely. They also use cardboard and brown paper, which is great! There was no plastic in the packaging. They even added 2 succulents as a gift in our order. Kelsi, one of their staff member even reached out to me to make sure I didn't make a mistake because not all the pots I ordered fit the plants I ordered (it was for some plants that I already owned, but how sweet?!) First time we purchased for Plantsome and definitely not the last. Great experience!! Read less
