Hoya pubicalyx is a vigorous vining plant with deep green lanceolate leaves. Its crisp, ovoid leaves splay out from vines that grow up to eight feet long.
The leaves often have a flecking of silvery variegation and the clusters of fragrant reddish-purple star shaped flowers give off a mocha nighttime scent. Blooms will reappear repeatedly, flowering off the old flower spurs for years to come. The fragrant flowers last up to 14 days.
Easy to grow & don"t require much attention. Hoya do best in filtered light or with lots of artificial light in indoors.
Hoya plants don't ask for much, beyond the well-draining soil and the warm humid conditions ((similar to bromeliads and orchids)
They are epyphite, can be grown in orchid medium or light potting mix with lots of bark conditioner. Hoya like the security of a snug pot, and plants that are a bit root bound will flower more prolifically than those that are swimming around in a giant pot.
This plant is attractive to bees, butterflies and/or birds .
It makes a nice hanging basket, but also does really well as a mounted plant
