SUSTAINABLE | MINIMAL WASTE | ARTISAN
Introducing the Hoya Pauciflora Pre-Potted Mini Pot Plant! Part of the mini range of pot plants from Greenhouse Co.
Take a legendary little plant, add a handmade ceramic mini pot, and Bob's your uncle! They may be small, but they will still bring a healthy touch of green to that shelf you've been staring at now for weeks.⠀
A striking hand-made ceramic piece. This pot is made with a simple yet elegant, gritty clay glazed in Chun (blue/grey and white glaze). This piece was handmade by master ceramicist Mark Gambino.
It comes complete with a beautiful little Hoya Pauciflora from Burma! It has narrow leaves that can vary from 3-9cm long but never get wider than 1cm. Depending on whether they are grown in strong light or not, the leaves will be either a pale almost lime green or dark green but they are always lighter on the under-surface of the leaf.
This item is part of Greenhouse Co's pre-potted range. As such, your little Hoya Pauciflora will arrive already potted directly into its new ceramic home. They will wrap the pot up in calico to ensure no soil is lost during transport and deliver them securely in their 100% recyclable cardboard packaging.

As the species name Pauciflora suggests, this species produces relatively few flowers as they only produce 1-2 flowers at a time rather than in large clusters as most Hoyas do. What they lack in quality they make up for in quantity, however. Each flower can be nearly 4cm wide and can be produced at any time of the year. They have brilliant white petals and a small red corona (ring of petaloid structures resembling a crown) and are beautifully scented.
Greenhouse Co have matched the Hoya Pauciflora to The Tripot - Chun, handmade by master ceramicist Mark Gambino.
The Tripot also has a drainage hole to provide better air circulation to your plant.
A Bit About the Ceramicist
Mark was introduced to pottery in primary school at the age of 10. He loved the feel of clay and being able to create from the earth. After a short session at school, he begged his parents to enrol him in a pottery school. Mark now has over 40 years experience and has made pottery for David Jones and Country Road.
In 2017 Mark opened his own studio where he teaches and thankfully continues to make pottery. He's still passionate about his craft, always trying to better his work. In recent years making his own glazes and experimenting with new colours and effects has become a bit of an obsession for Mark.

Greenhouse Co is all about:
Helping you transform your space with beautiful plants and ceramics;
Encouraging a passion for plants by helping you to care for and be successful with your plants – they don’t want you to buy more because you killed the last lot, they want you to buy more because you love them!
They are also passionate about collaborating with other small businesses! That's why they offer a selection of beautiful ceramic pots made by in collaboration with local pottery artists. Similar to the plants themselves, each piece is different and unique, and that makes them beautiful and a perfect medium for indoor plants.
SUSTAINABLE & MINIMAL WASTE
Sustainability and minimising waste are important to Greenhouse Co - which is why they have designed fully recycle-able, plastic-free packaging. Each plant is delivered in a reusable plastic pot (so that it can be easily lifted out for watering and rehomed when it grows) and recyclable packaging, including coir fibre (an already-recycled product that is 100% compostable) and calico bags.
As a general rule, let the top 1-2cm of soil in the pot dry out before watering again in the growing season (Spring and Summer). In the colder months let them dry out much more before watering again.
Position and Lighting
Like most Hoyas, they can handle shade but if you want them to flower, and believe me, you want them to flower, they need very light. As well as bright light, these Hoyas also flower in response to the increasing temperature difference between night and day. So as the nights get cooler, consider leaving them somewhere that they will get cold at night (but not frost) but stay warm during the day. For example, you could leave them on a warm sunny window sill but crack the window at night so they get that cold draft.
These plants currently have 2-3 stems approximately 25cm long. They will remain happy in the pot they are shipped in for a few years before they require repotting.
Hoyas are one of the toughest plants getting around the greenhouse so they are really easy to care for! Download the care guide so you know how to treat them special.
