Hoya incrassata Warburg




This hoya comes from the Philippines and it was described in 1904.


There are a number of hoyas sold under different names that some people say should be called Hoya incrassata, since that was the name that was first published. Correct me if I'm wrong!


The leaves on this hoya vary a lot in size. Anywhere between 9-16 cm long and 4-6 cm wide. These leaves are all green, have no flecks and they are somewhat "folded" along the center vein. Leaves are quite shiny when young, but get harder and not so shiny (and I don't mean dust!) as they get older. Some leaves get thicker than others and these are also quite lighter in colour.


The flowers on this hoya are quite small, only about 5 mm and reflexed. The corolla lobes are yellow and have brownish tips and the corona is white. These flowers have a very strong fragrance. It's hard to describe the fragrance, but it's mostly on the spicy side with a hint of citrus... I find this fragrance rather nice, except when you have a lot of flowers at the same time! In one umbel there can be anywhere from 30 up to 80 flowers. They last about 3-4 days.
