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.
