Hoya linearis N. Wallich ex. D. Don




This hoya comes from Himalaya (Sikkim) and it was published in 1825.


This is a hoya that is best suited to grow hanging since it doesn't climb / twine on its own. I have seen plants wrapped around supports and they actually looked kind of cool, but hardly practical. The leaves are light green, hairy and very narrow. They are about 4-6 cm long and only 4-5 mm wide. It will fast become a nice hanging pot if you pot several cuttings in the same pot.


This hoya blooms when the days get shorter, i e in the fall and winter. The flowers have white corolla, white corona with a little pink in the center. These flowers are sometimes flat, but mostly a little recurved, about 1 cm in diameter and you'll find 10-15 flowers in an umbel. The flowers last about 5 days, produce little nectar and the fragrance is closest described as lemon-ish.
