Hoya caudata 'Sumatra' has one of the most unusual flowers in the genus! Its mottled foliage develops into thick leathery lanceolate leaves with a rough texture, when exposed to very bright light or a bit of direct sun the leaves may turn red. Clusters of white to pale pink blooms are pubescent, with a fringe of long hairs along the edges; and anthers with long, thin, tail-like (caudate) appendages that are raised above a pinkish red to deep rose corona.
*NOTE: THESE ARE IN 4.5" HANGING BASKETS* and have 2-3 plants per pot!
~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.
