Just a little heads-up - the color of the leaves may surprise you. If your plant arrives with green leaves instead of the red ones, don't fret; that's completely normal. The redness is actually a result of being kissed by bright light, so your green-leaved friend just hasn't been sunbathing as much.
Now, let me introduce you to something really special: Hoyasp. Gunung Gading. Discovered in the breathtaking Gunung Gading National Park in Sarawak, on Borneo Island, Malaysia, this Hoya is a true gem in the Finlaysonii complex. With leaves that flaunt stunning veining patterns and sun-stressed colors, it's more than just a plant – it's a work of art. Imagine bringing a touch of tropical beauty into your space with Hoya sp. Gunung Gading! Trust me, your plant-loving soul will thank you.
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.
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.
