Hoya bella (Hook.) D.H.Kent
 

 


 

This hoya comes from India, Thailand and Burma and it was published in 1981.

 

It's a hoya best suitable for growing hanging. The leaves are small, lanceolate shaped about 3 cm long and 1 cm wide with a lowered center vein. This hoya can be tricky to grow. It likes a lot of water, but not too wet... If the roots rot, take cuttings and start over!

 

The flowers are white with a pink/purple corona and have a nice fresh sort of perfume like fragrance. They are about 1.5 cm and normally you will wind 7-9 flowers in each umbel. The flowers grow at the tips of the veins, have no nectar, last about 8 days and this hoya drops its peduncles after the flowers.
