Hoya brevialata, also known as the Short-winged Hoya, is a captivating addition to any plant collection. Native to Sulawesi, Indonesia, this plant is renowned for its compact and charming appearance, making it an ideal choice for hanging baskets or small spaces.

Features:

Foliage: Hoya brevialata boasts small, round, and succulent-like leaves. The leaves are fleshy and stiff, exhibiting a pale green or yellowish to reddish hue when exposed to intense sunlight.
Flowers: During summer, this plant produces clusters of 15 to 25 fragrant flowers. The blooms are star-shaped, with finely hairy, almost white to reddish lobes and a red and yellow corona. The flowers emit a delightful caramel-like scent.

Care Instructions:

Light: Hoya brevialata thrives in bright, indirect sunlight. While it can tolerate lower light levels, inadequate light may result in weak, leggy growth and fewer flowers.
Watering: Water thoroughly during the spring and summer, allowing the soil to dry out between waterings. Overwatering can lead to root rot, so it’s crucial to ensure good drainage.
Soil: Use well-draining, porous soil with a slightly acidic to neutral pH. A mix of peat moss and perlite or a specialized Hoya potting mix works well.
Humidity: This plant enjoys higher humidity levels, so consider using a humidifier or placing it on a pebble tray with water.
Temperature: Ideal growing temperatures range from 40 to 50°F in cooler months. Keep it in a warm, humid environment and away from drafty areas.
Fertilizing: Feed with a high-potassium fertilizer at half strength every two weeks during the growing season.

Propagation:

Hoya brevialata is best propagated by stem cuttings taken during the spring or summer. Root the cuttings in well-drained soil and keep them moist in a warm, semi-shaded position until they establish.
