This listing is for a trellised and mature Hoya quinquenervia.
Hoya quinquenervia is a stunning plant that was discovered in O. Warburg Malunu, Isabela Province in Luzon, Philippines and first described in 1904.
The young leaves display beautiful reddish-purple hues, while the larger ones turn a striking reddish tone in strong light. The long-lasting yellow blooms emit a mild, sweet fragrance that lingers in the air. Although the flowers last about four or five days, they remain closed and attached to the plant for some time before dropping. This hoya is a must-have for any collector looking to add a touch of exotic beauty to their indoor garden.
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.
Intermediate: Lowest 60F
This hoya does not require high heat, but does not tolerate cold as well as other varieties.
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.
