Hoya bakoensis was first found by Michele Rodda in the lush Kerangas Forests of Bako National Park. The origin of its variegated mutation, however, remains a mystery. This plant is a rare gem in the market, adding to its elusive charm. While trying to obtain this exceptional plant from Thailand, we encountered multiple importation setbacks due to its incredible sensitivity to stress.
Fortunately, caring for this plant has proven to be relatively easy. It exhibits a moderate growth rate, neither too fast nor too slow. During the initial rooting process, it may be slightly sluggish and thrives in a high-humidity environment. However, once established, we have successfully cultivated it in a well-lit, warm space with diffused lighting. Interestingly, despite its preference for humidity, it surprisingly adapts well to lower humidity conditions and grows beautifully.

Care Needs

Bright diffused light

Recreate conditions under a tree canopy, where plants receive lots of light, but it is filtered through the foliage of the trees above. Your light should be bright enough to cast soft shadows.

Low Humidity: Ideally Above 40%

This Hoya tolerates a drier environment. However, it could still benefit from light humidity care, including misting and grouping together with other houseplants. May require humidifier in cooler, drier months.

Intermediate: Lowest 60F

This hoya does not require high heat, but does not tolerate cold as well as other varieties.

Does Sunstress

This plant has evolved to shift color when exposed to bright sunlight, much like a human getting a tan. This does not harm the plant with proper care.
