I was wondering what house plants could potentially grow in wax, like candle, paraffin, or beeswax. Everytime I try to look it up, Google gives me wax plants. My dad uses permies a lot, and I was hoping you guys could help me.

I suspect that wax would be too difficult for the roots to penetrate.  Also, it lacks the nutrition and microlife that soil provides.

However, it would be a fun experiment just to see if it can be done. One way to find out is to give it a try and see.  If it fails, you can melt and clean the wax afterwards.  If it works, you have discovered a new thing which is wonderful. 
 
Brace yourself while corporate america tries to sell us its things. Some day they will chill and use tiny ads.
