Description

This is an unusual macrophylla clone, quite different than the other ones in my collection. It has very attractive cordate shaped leaves with silver flecks and prominent veins. The foliage gets more or less 5″ long by 3″ wide.
It bloomed for me after 1.5 years from a small plant. The pale pink flowers are small, but are glossy and super cute. The flowers have an unusual scent that reminded me of crayons (lol) mixed with perfume. In my opinion, it was a pleasant and mild smell.
This clone has grown well for me outside and grows fairly fast. This is a really pretty foliage plant and I think you will enjoy it in your collection. This macrophylla is still pretty rare on the market.
Our hoyas are grown outside in south FL in filtered light and the information provided is based on growing in our climate only.
We water only when they are starting to dry out and we protect them well in the winter.
