Hoya obovata 'Amela' (green on green variegation)
Discover the Hoya obovata ‘Amelia’ - a unique gem meticulously cultivated by Ms. Viola Sadowska in Poland, and named affectionately after her beloved cat, Amelia. This striking mutation of the Hoya obovata stands out for its lush, waxy leaves adorned with a faint yellow variegation along the margins, making it a captivating addition to any indoor plant collection.
The 'Amelia' thrives under bright, indirect sunlight, which is essential for developing its distinctive leaf variegation. As the plant matures and the leaves harden, the variegation gently fades to reveal a stunning, deep green foliage. However, it's important to strike the right balance with lighting; excessive exposure can lead to edema spots on the leaves. While these spots may affect the plant's aesthetic, they are purely superficial and pose no real threat to the plant's health.
In terms of watering, the Hoya obovata 'Amelia' is forgiving. Inconsistent watering may lead to the aforementioned edema spots, but this resilient cultivar can withstand periods of neglect without serious harm. So, if you occasionally forget to water your Hoya, rest assured that it will patiently wait for your attention.
With its easy-care nature, fragrant pink blooms in the summer, and visually stunning foliage, the Hoya obovata ‘Amelia’ is an indispensable part of any plant lover's collection. It's a beautiful reminder of nature's adaptability and resilience, promising to bring joy and beauty to your home with minimal fuss.
