Introducing the Hoya ‘Idaho’ (MB1432), a remarkable hybrid from the talented hybridizer Mike Bernardo. This plant combines the best traits of its parent species, Hoya MB 001 and Hoya aldrichii. Celebrated for its large, round foliage, Hoya ‘Idaho’ (MB1432) can develop dramatic dark margins when grown in bright light, adding a dynamic visual contrast to its smooth, simple leaves. The plant's blossoms are just as captivating, with clusters of white corollas and deep pink coronas, providing a stunning display of color.

Ideal for pet owners, this hybrid thrives in bright, indirect light but should be protected from direct sunlight to prevent leaf scorch. Hoya ‘Idaho’ (MB1432) is known to be prone to edema, which presents as blister-like formations on the leaves; however, this does not impact the plant's health. To minimize the risk of edema, it’s recommended to manage the lighting conditions carefully and maintain consistent watering practices.

Hoya ‘Idaho’ (MB1432) is not only a visual treat but also easy to care for, making it an excellent addition to any collection, whether you're a novice or an experienced plant enthusiast. With its unique appearance and straightforward maintenance needs, it brings a touch of the tropics and botanical elegance to any indoor space.

Care Needs

Bright Light

No barrier between the plant and the light source. Ex: Directly under a grow light, in a sunny window with no curtains or trees.

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.

Loves Heat: Lowest 70F/21C

This hoya does not do well in cold conditions, so be sure to keep in a greenhouse or other temperature controlled space.

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.
