This Hoya obovata has thick, round, gorgeous variegated patterned leaves. The variegation is stunning, but please understand that sometimes the leaves start to turn green. The leaves can revert back to variegated.

Hoya obovata produces lovely flowers as well. The corolla is beige with touches of pink and the corona is a flashy pinkish red. Really easy to grow species; I recommend this one for beginners!

We grow our hoyas outdoors in filtered light. Hoyas are known for being good indoor plants as well. Most hoyas like to be kept a little on the dry side. Give the hoyas with thin leaves more water. Hoyas like to grow in small pots with a trellis or hanging baskets. Fertilization is average. Hoyas need to be protected from cold temperatures.
