Hoya wayetii from the Philippines is a small sized plant with nice bicolored leaves. This makes it an attractive plant even without flowers. Dark red flowers are frequently produced during summer months, about 20 per umbel. Leaves are succulent with dark margins and no visible veins. Avoid overly wet conditions.Hoyas in general are twining vines. They usually live in rainforests, on trees. Many species like this one are easy to grow because they can grow in many different conditions. They grow in bright shade or morning sun but they will also grow indoors as house plants as long as bright light is provided. They are well suited for baskets, trellises or ladders. They will tolerate a few weeks of drought but they are sensitive to frost and cold weather in general. Hoyas grow in fluffy soil with organic matter and sand or other draining materials.
We offer a rooted plant, grown in an 8,5-12 cm pot. Container size will give you an idea, but succulent plants are often sent bare root. These plants are very tolerant of bare-rooting.
