I love this Hoya! Not only did it survive a ROUGH import where it came with no roots, but it kept all of its beautiful foliage and sunstressed to have light lime veining to contract the beautiful leaves! It was my most successful, happy plant out of the 12 Hoyas I ordered, which shows to how hearty and easy it is.

I tried rooting the plant in leca, moss, and water. Moss was the most successful with leca in second place. Once it started rooting, it rooted like crazy! This Hoya does NOT root well in water; my water cuttings died and refused to root.

This Hoya thrives in humidity. I had it in 99% for the first 2 months while I was rooting it and reduced it to my 60-90% humidity cabinet where it now happily lives in leca. Other than the humidity requirement, this Hoya is one of the easiest. It’s so beautiful! One of my favorites.
