Biggest warning to those looking to buy this Hoya: it does NOT ship well! When I got this Hoya it started out as 25 lightly rooted cuttings in an import. Out of the entire order, only 2 survived. The rest turned to mush while I tried to root them. The only medium where any survived was moss and the majority of my moss props died anyways. Definitely a plant you want to buy locally and rooted. Luckily, once the plant starts rooting it is an easy, fast rooted/grower. It likes humidity but it doesn’t like wet leaves. It’s leaves will get mushy and yellow and drop when it experiences shock, so be mindful of environmental changes. Im a glutton for punishment so I still love her though.
