Hoya Globulosa (Cao Bang), formerly Hoya Villosa (Cao Bang), was described by Sir Joseph Hooker and was newly introduced from the Sikkim Himalaya. It is a type of stove climber Hoya with pale straw or cream-colored flowers and pink coronal appendages.
Hoya Globulosa (Cao Bang) bears flowers in clustered heads, with a very pleasant scent similar to that of a Turk's-cap Lily. The plant's oblong leathery leaves are rounded at the base and taper to a point at the apex.
Researchers have documented its remarkable ability to imitate the fly-catching behavior of its close relative, Apocynum. Evidence suggests that this variety may tolerate temperatures lower than some of its kin.
Recreate a dense forest environment. Very little, if any, direct sunlight should hit the plant at any time of the day.
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.
Cold Tolerant: Lowest 50F/10C
This hoya will tolerate cooler conditions than most.
Does Not Sunstress
This plant will not change color under bright light.
If any weather is under 35 degrees, day or night, we unfortunately can not guarantee you a live plant upon arrival. The buyer will have to assume all responsibility for any weather related damages. Heat packs are voided once temperature reaches freezing point, even if it claims 3 days of heat.
We will still pack with insulation and to the best of our ability, we just can not provide you with our normal guarantee in this weather.
We would also highly recommend overnight shipping for your order, but as you are taking responsibility for the package that is completely your choice.
