Hoya loyceandrewsiana (former latifolia) (4″ pot) (clone with larger leaves)

$50.00

We received this one as a Hoya latifolia with giant leaves. After growing it for a year and a half, it does appear to develop larger leaves. I have not bloomed it yet, but assume flowers are the same. Most people are now calling this Hoya loyceandrewsiana but we do not believe that is a valid name/is not correct. 

Ships in 4″ pot. Photo #2 ONLY, shows an example on size plant for sale.
Our plants are grown outside in FL; imperfections/blemishes are typical for this one.

Description

Hoya latifolia tends to develop black dots on some leaves from living outside in south FL at our nursery. The spots are not a disease and will not affect the plants health.

All photos are of our mother plants and not actual plants for sale! 

This hoya develops really big leaves. Some people call this hoya ‘dinner plate hoya’ because the leaves get so big and round that they resemble a plate you eat off of. The leaves also sometimes have pretty silver flecks.
Once established, it produces beautiful white flowers that are very perfumed at night. You usually see many flowers per umbel and the cluster can resemble a big ball, as seen in the pictures of my mother plants in bloom.
This hoya is not a fast grower at the beginning, but eventually it can grow big and needs space. I have found it to be very easy to grow and flower when grown outside in FL. We grow them in filtered light and only water once the soil drys out. Keep above 50 degrees F, okay to bring inside during the winter time, but try to give it extra light, humidity, and proper air circulation.
Very impressive hoya, must have for your collection!
