This newly-offered Hoya came to us with no ID, but has been tentatively identified by a Hoya expert as Hoya sp. 'Hat Som Paen'. As with most Hoya, you cannot confidently confirm an ID until you get the Hoya to bloom so we have selected a few stock baskets to grow and bloom out!
Either way, this Hoya features smooth, elliptical green leaves splotched with silvery speckles and slight veining. As a fast-vining plant this Hoya is a wonderful addition to any collection!
~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.
