Hoya quinquenervia is a prolific bloomer that loves bright to direct light, the foliage sunstresses beautifully as the young leaves develop a purple hue, and the mature foliage can turn a deep red. The long lasting yellow blooms have a mild sweet scent. This Hoya has thinner leaves and will require a bit more frequent watering than your other more succulent leaved Hoyas.
Note to customer: some of these are growing in 3" pots and others in 4" pots, however the plants are the same size.
~Do Not let Hoya sit in excess water. As epiphytes, in the wild they would be growing on tree trunks or branches in the forest understory where they would get most of their water just from dew or moisture in the air.
~Hoya are considerably hardy & tolerant of a wide range of growing conditions, but for the best growth it is recommended to provide higher levels of humidity.
~Do Not remove the peduncles [flower stalks] after your Hoya has finished flowering. Hoya are able to rebloom again & again from the same peduncle!
~Feed regularly during the growing season with a low nitrogen fertilizer containing sufficient amounts of phosphorous and potassium.
