Hoya microstemma Schlechter





This hoya comes from Papua New Guinea and it was described in 1913. It looks a lot like Hoya anulata and eitapensis.


Just like anulata and eitapensis this hoya has rather stiff vines and doesn't twine on its own. The leaves are rather thick, about 4-7 cm long and 2-4 cm wide. They have no visible veins, but a lot more flecks than Hoya anulata. If it's grown in sunshine the leaves get nice red.


The flowers, which I've now seen many times, are white with dark pink (almost purple) corona. Each flower is about 1.5 cm and you'll find 10-15 flowers in an umbel. They produce quite a lot of nectar but it doesn't make any mess and the fragrance is like newly baked coconut cookies!
