Hoya sp. wallichii ssp. Tenebrosa (SLM-02) is a beautiful plant with unique features that make it stand out from its relatives.
This "Red Wallichii" plant is closely related to Hoya wallichii and is a great addition to any Hoya collection. It can be trellised with ease, making it perfect for small spaces. The plant flowers non-stop and produces large, beautiful blooms that are delicate in scent and reminiscent of clove. The flowers, however, are ephemeral and last only for a short time, making them truly precious.
Recreate a dense forest environment. Very little, if any, direct sunlight should hit the plant at any time of the day.
