Hoya rintzii is a stunning plant with large green leaves that are beautifully splashed with silver and pink. It was named after R.E. Rintz, a Hoya expert who studied these plants in Peninsular Malaysia.

This species belongs to the mindorensis Complex in Borneo, along with Hoya mindorensis and Hoya elmeri, but its leaves are much bigger than those of the other two. The flower ball is smaller than the other two, but no less striking. Hoya rintzii is a lowland species that is found in the tree canopy along rivers, and prefers warm temperatures.

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.

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.

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.
