4" Hoya gracilis
Hoya gracilis now goes by Hoya memoria, as it was published in the International Plant Names Index in 2004 - named after the Memorial Garden in Manila, Philippines. Looks best in a hanging basket as it does not twine as readily on its own compared to other vining Hoyas. Narrow, dark green leaves with varying silver spots that can get a bit over 2" long, blooms smell of caramel and are borne in umbels of 15-25 small flowers with dark to medium pink corollas and red coronas with a yellow center.
Hoyas are mostly epiphytic creeping, twining or vining plants that have a vast array of different leaf shapes, sizes, textures & colors! If provided with the desired conditions Hoyas can bloom, their flowers varying widely species-to-species with many different colors, sizes & even scents!
~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.
