Hoya 'Tequila-Sunrise' is a cultivar with impressive, prominently veined leaves that exhibit stunning sun-induced coloration. Its flowers, which resemble the famous tequila sunrise cocktail, add to its visual appeal.
This variety was introduced by Susan Swartzfager in 2016 and has since become a popular choice among Hoya enthusiasts.
Please note that the coloration per plant varies. The foliage turns red when exposed to bright 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.
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.
