Hoya wayetii (mini), a flowering plant species belonging to the genus Hoya, is indigenous to the beautiful Philippines. It is sometimes mistaken for Hoya kentiana or Hoya shepherdii due to its long and slender foliage, often adorned with a red margin when basking in ample sunlight. Following the growth pattern of many other plants in its genus, it exhibits a delightful vining habit. This particular clone is a charming miniature rendition, boasting slender leaves that are slightly shorter, exuding an irresistibly endearing charm.
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.
