This Hoya sp. DML 5655 IML 1398 features thick, pre-historic style leaves that can turn sunstressed for a unique look. Its vibrant color makes this a great addition to any Hoya collection.
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.
Will benefit from high humidity care. Will likely require humidifiers, daily misting, grouping with other plants, and more.
This hoya does not do well in cold conditions, so be sure to keep in a greenhouse or other temperature controlled space.
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.
