This unique Hoya has a very distinctive pattern, with heavily veined, thick and large, dark green leaves. A good bloomer, and an easy to grow plant!
Hoya Fungii comes from the island of Hainan, off the coast of China. It is an easy Hoya to grow and bring into bloom. A medium strong grower that needs considerable space as it matures. Leaves are large and covered in soft hairs (pubescence), new leaves are bronze green in color maturing to deep emerald green, and the stems on new growth are a gorgeous bronze purple. The leaves will be darker, softer and larger when grown in shade; and smaller, rigid and a lighter shade of green under brighter indirect light. The flowers are similar to carnosa but larger and fuzzier, once mature its globular clusters have around 60 flowers per umbel! The color of the blooms varies from pure white to dark rose pink and every shade in between, depending on temperature and light levels. Although this species has been known to survive light frost, it will be much happier if kept above 50F.
Warm temps, higher humidity, and well draining soil will keep this fella happy.
