Ricardo's survival guide
Salsa is the dance of love
Tanned. Chiseled chest. Hips of a god. Rhythm of the Devil - Ricardo will make any woman’s knees weak and a few men uncomfortably intrigued. Ricardo rolls his “r”s like the ocean rolls in tides and he stops to dance only until the sun has come up. Ricardo’s from a tropical part of the world with a name you can never properly pronounce. Legend has it he learnt to salsa before he learnt to walk and his first word was “Olé!”
How to care for Ricardo
Hoya's are popular plants because of their relatively easy going character. But there are Hoya's, and then there's the Hoya Obovata. Consider yourself lucky if they are available as these beauties rarely come up. Its leaves are larger than found on most other Hoyas and more striking thanks to the unique oval shape and subtle variegation. Hoyas require little in the way of care. Their leaves naturally store excess water which means the plant doesn't need as much of it. Water only when the top 2 inches of soil has dried out and keep your Hoya in a bright spot where it gets partial sun for the best growth.
