Origin and Discovery
Hoya sp. Ambon is a captivating variety originating from Ambon, an island in Indonesia. This particular Hoya species thrives in the warm, humid conditions typical of tropical regions, reflecting its native habitat.

Natural Habitat
In the wild, Hoya sp. Ambon is commonly found as an epiphyte, meaning it grows on other plants or trees, using its aerial roots to anchor itself. This allows it to receive filtered sunlight and ample moisture, which are crucial for its growth. The plant’s natural environment includes the humid, forested areas of Ambon, where it benefits from the high humidity and consistent rainfall typical of the region.

Plant Characteristics
Hoya sp. Ambon features attractive foliage with glossy, green leaves that can vary in shape and size. When in bloom, it produces clusters of small, star-shaped flowers that are typical of Hoya species, adding a delicate beauty to its appearance.

Care Instructions

Light: Prefers bright, indirect light. Can tolerate some direct sunlight, but too much can scorch the leaves.
Temperature: Thrives in temperatures between 60-80°F (15-27°C). Not frost-tolerant, so keep it away from cold drafts.
Watering: Allow the top inch of soil to dry out before watering again. Overwatering can lead to root rot, so ensure the pot has good drainage.
Humidity: High humidity levels are ideal. Consider misting the leaves or using a humidifier to maintain moisture levels.
Soil: Use a well-draining mix, such as one designed for orchids or a blend of peat-free potting soil, expanded clay, and pine bark.
Fertilization: During the growing season, feed with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted to half strength every 4-6 weeks.
Propagation: Can be propagated through stem cuttings. Root the cuttings in water or a well-draining soil mix.

By providing the right conditions and care, Hoya sp. Ambon can flourish and bring a touch of tropical elegance to any indoor garden
