Hoya cumingiana is a very hardy and fast growing species endemic to the Philippines, where it is usually found growing on limestone cliffs in full tropical sun. The foliage consists of small scallop shaped leaves on strong upright stems that will begin to cascade under their own weight as they grow longer unless provided with a support to climb. Blooms consist of 10-15 star shaped yellow flowers with a maroon corona, born on peduncles normally found near the tips of each stem. The fragrance is strongest in the evenings, and has been described as ripe mangoes with a hint of cinnamon. What differentiates this hoya from most others is that it does not rebloom from the same peduncle, however it is a profuse bloomer!
~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.
~Feed regularly during the growing season with a low nitrogen fertilizer containing sufficient amounts of phosphorous and potassium.
