Hoya pubicalyx 'Red Buttons' is a woody, epiphyte or scrambling shrubwith deep dark purple flowers with red centers. It often has purple or red stems as well as blotches on leaves of the same color. Some leaves get spots of red when young and some are completely red. This plant is a fairly fast grower with blooms in the springtime. The flowers have a strong, sweet fragrance and last about two weeks.
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
