Description

This hoya is a slow grower in the beginning, but when it takes off it gets to be a very full and healthy looking plant. The greenish purple leaves are very pretty and I know you would enjoy this as a hanging foliage plant. You can see more pinks and purples on the leaves when you expose it to more light. The leaves are small, round w/ a point on the end, and are heavily flecked.
The flowers are also pretty special and distinct from the others although I would not expect too many flowers on this species. The fuzzy corollas are yellowish-green and corona is off white with red/pink center. The flowers also smell really nice. This Hoya is native to The Philippines, Malaysia, and Thailand. I do not recommend this hoya for the beginner just starting their Hoya collection, although it is easier to grow than many believe and grows well once it is established.
H. curtisii likes filtered light and to be kept a little on the dry side. I water it once a week in the winter and twice a week in the summer, but it may need more/less depending on your growing enviroment. Protect from temperatures in the mid 50’s F and colder.

****All pictures were taken of our mature mother plants in bloom, not of the starter plants for sale.

****Hoya curtisii tends to not grow many roots. We cannot promise a plant that is pot-bound as this is not how this species works. We sell them with few roots and actively sprouting new growth.
