Meet the Hoya caudata (Sumatra)! This Hoya from Southeast Asia boasts splashy ovate leaves with irregular, rippled margins, adding a touch of texture and interest to any room. The leaves are slightly hairy and start out solid green before eventually fading to a rich, dark green. But the real showstopper is the clusters of furry, white, star-shaped flowers that bloom on this Hoya.
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.
Cold Tolerant: Lowest 50F/10C
This hoya will tolerate cooler conditions than most.
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.
