Origin and Discovery: Hoya meredithii, a distinctive member of the Hoya genus, was first officially described in 1988 by Ted Green in the journal Phytologia. This species is native to Borneo, specifically the regions of Sabah and Sarawak, where it thrives as an epiphyte in the humid, tropical forests.

Plant Description: Hoya meredithii is renowned for its massive, wavy leaves that flourish in a warm environment. It prefers lower light settings which help encourage the growth of its striking foliage rather than causing sun stress. The veins on the leaves are dark green to almost black, providing a beautiful contrast that enhances the plant’s overall appeal.

Care Tips: Caring for Hoya meredithii involves providing bright, indirect light and a well-draining potting mix. Watering should be moderate—allow the top inch of soil to dry out before watering again. Despite its love for humidity, too much of it without adequate air circulation can lead to fungal issues on the leaves. However, these are not a major concern as once the environment is adjusted to reduce humidity and improve airflow, the affected areas typically heal and callous, preventing further damage. This ensures that while the leaf may be discolored, the overall health of the plant remains robust.

By integrating these care practices, your Hoya meredithii will not only survive but thrive, bringing a touch of the exotic to your indoor garden.

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.

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 Not Sunstress
