This beauty is a cross between H. ‘MB0001’ and H. excavata, done by Mike Bernardo. H. ‘MB0001’ is a previous cross of H. verticilla and H. rigida.
It is said that the ‘Hotlips’ hybrid was named after a character in the show MASH.

This hoya has very handsome thick leaves that are medium green with slightly lighter margins. This hybrid took less than two years to bloom from a cutting. The flowers are beautiful shades of pinks and purples, just stunning! The flowers are also pleasantly fragrant and can last almost a week. Once mature enough to bloom, flowers can be seen several times during the warm months.
Still a new hoya on the market. It is beautiful and easy to grow.

We grow our hoyas outside in south FL in filtered light, we only water when the soil drys out, and we protect well from cold temperatures.
