A completely unique, shingling hoya which produces shallow, dome-shaped enclosures between the leaf and substrate as well as pocket-like pouches, both of which serve as nesting sites for ant colonies.
Foliage is dark green in colour with beautiful marbled tones of pale green / grey.
Blooms: Gently reflexed, pubescent flowers in a cream/lemon colour, up to 10mm in diameter, with tufted, yellow-centred corona. Up to 14 flowers per umbel. Faintly perfumed.
Sun exposure: Requires bright and warm growing conditions with plenty of humidity.
Water requirement: Enjoys being misted. Prefers well-drained, open mix. Water less in winter.
Maintenance: Low. Half strength doses of fertiliser in warmer months.
Special note: WAOL permitted. Good support required to encourage the leaves to shingle. If unsupported, leaves will roll in upon themselves. Order limits apply.
Each living plant is unique and may vary in size, colour, or shape depending on the season. Flowering plants are sent when available. Plants are shipped bare-rooted.
