You have to see it to believe it! No words can truly describe the beauty of this Hoya.
The striking hard green leaves have a dramatic almost-black venation that creates a stunning contrast. The leaves are irregular and rough at the edges, reaching sizes up to 15cm x 8cm.
As for blooms, they are simply delightful! The buttery-yellow flowers with rusty red tips are about 12mm across and have a gold-centred white corona. Each umbel can have up to 20 flowers. The mild fragrance is an added bonus, and each flower lasts for about 2 days.
Recreate a dense forest environment. Very little, if any, direct sunlight should hit the plant at any time of the day.
