(Here’s my instagram post regarding this species. Please refer to the first photo. The plant you will receive may have a varying amount of contrast on the leaves which may be confusing)


📍FRIENDLY REMINDER📍

This is why Hoyas should not be named based off of leaves only. If you’ve lost a tag in the past or obtained a plant without a tag, the bloom will be your best friend when it comes to finding the correct name of it.

These 2 cuttings are Hoya sp. (Tanggamus) and are from the same mother plant. The low contrast one has been growing under a lot of foliage and the high contrast leaves were getting a lot more light than the other one. This is also a great tip for you if you want your leaves to grow in a certain way ☺️

From my own observations

LOW LIGHT -

✅ no contrasts on the leaves
✅ larger leaves (plants are trying to compensate with low light so they grow larger leaves.)
✅ they tend to have thinner leaves. My understanding is because they are not as hot 🌡, they feel as if they don’t need to store as much water therefore, leaves are thinner.

HIGH LIGHT-

✅ High venation contrast
✅Smaller but thicker leaves (stores more water)
✅Leaves can change in color. Whether that’s blushing (red, marroon, purple, etc) or if the plant isn’t capable of blushing, leaves will turn light green.

Both extreme environments (extreme low or extreme high light) isn’t recommended so find your sweet spot and grow yourself a beautiful collection to your taste! 💚

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.

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 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.
