Description 

Hoya Buotii is a thin wiry vine, often woody at the base. Flowers are somewhat cup shaped / almost flat, about 2 cm . They are fragrant , with a vanilla like scent; to 3 cm across. Petals very pale yellow - dull yellow, in some forms with a warm violet tinge, densely hairy. Leaves are mid - dark green, to 12 cm long by 5 cm wide.

Environment

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 .

Landscape Use

It makes a nice hanging basket, but also does really well as a mounted plant
