A variety of hoya whose foliage turns bronze under intense sunlight. A cultivar of Hoya Lacunosa (ssp Pallidiflora) and Hoya Obscura, which closely resembles the latter. Features emerald ovate leaves with lime veins and off-white flecks. In a sun-stressed state, foliage reddens to a vivid scarlet and burgundy with veins in stark contrast. Hoyas — aka "wax plants," thanks to their thick, waxy leaves — are among our favourite indoor houseplants. The species is largely drought-tolerant, endures for years in the same pot, grows to epic proportions, propagates easily, and produces recurring clusters of fragrant, star-shaped flowers in ideal growing conditions. Best suited to any small tabletop planter Bergs Potter. Prefers bright indirect to filtered sunlight. Avoid exposure to direct afternoon sun, as this may scorch and permanently damage leaves.
