Description

We purchased this as a cutting from Liddle’s Nursery in Australia. According to the Liddle’s catalog, this Hoya is supposed to bloom blue/green with white corona flowers. Unfortunately, that is not the case, at least with what I received, but it is still a different and nice Hoya.

My plant bloomed with yellowish green corolla and off white corona. I love the scent of the flowers! To me, it is really sweet and reminds me of cake batter or the smell of a frosted birthday cake.
The leaves are also super attractive on this plant. If you grow yours in bright light, the leaves turn burgundy with visible white/green veins! Not quite what we expected from this Hoya, but a pleasant surprise.
This is an easy Hoya to grow.
It is native to the rainforest of Mcllwraith Range in North Queensland. This Hoya is rarely offered for sale.

We grow our Hoyas outside in filtered light, keep soils slightly dry, and protect from cold temperatures. Hoyas also like small pots and do not need to be repotted very often.
