Hoya subcalva is a very vigorous plant that seems to thrive on neglect.The clean, glossy, paddle-shaped leaves of this elegant specimen splay out from thin vines. New foliage emerges pale and darkens to a deep green; each leaf grows to about five inches long.
The long-lasting flowers are notable, too: they bloom in clusters of about 20 raspberry-pink blossoms that smell like grape juice. The petal margins are light apricot, and a wide pink band of color runs along the center vein.Up to 40 flowers per umbel & nectar producing. The flower lasts for up to one week.
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
Hoyas like medium to bright indirect light. It detests direct sunlight and dark corners!
Hoya plants are very sensitive to over watering. To avoid this always keep a Hoya in a pot with a drainage hole. Use well drained soil or coco peat and perlite mix to make sure the excess water gets drained out. Water the Hoya only when the soil is completely dry. If it is moist you can let it be for a couple of days before checking on it again. It is better to under water than over water your Hoya plant!
Don't cut the long tendrils of your Hoya as the leaves and flowers develop from these!
