Such a unique hoya variety! It sunstresses beautifully, but not the typical way for other Hoyas - It produces red coloration on just the edge of the leaves just like subquintuplinervis and grows compact, dense leaves.

I didn't have much knowledge on its origins, so I asked the original grower. So far, what I know is this originated in Epiphytica Garden in Thailand and was grown from seed. I believe the mother plant was subquintuplinervis (former pachyclada) and it was open pollinated.

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.
