Hoya waymaniae comes from the jungles of Borneo and was described in 1995. It uses very little water for a Hoya, and needs to dry between waterings, which can be as long as two weeks in between. The most spectacular part and interesting fact about this plant is that the peduncles can be up to 12 inches long!
The younger leaves are often shiny but the shine disappears the older the plant gets. The slightly hairy, thick, firm leaves have wavy edges with flecks. The leaves can get unstressed from some direct sun. A Hoya worth growing for the beautiful foliage!
Basic care instructions (please research ideal care for your specific conditions):
Light: Place in very bright indirect light, indoors or out (bring in if dipping below 55 degrees). A few hours of morning or late afternoon sun, especially in winter, is great.
Water: Allow potting media to thoroughly dry between waterings!
*Color of leaves and blooms will depend on environmental conditions of each individual plant. Individual plants may vary based on stock available.
