Hoya motoskei Teijsm. & Binn.




This hoya comes from China, southern Japan and Okinawa and it was described in 1855. It is said to be the true Hoya carnosa.


This is a hoya best grown on a support, but it can be grown hanging too. Just be ware of really long new vines! The leaves are dark green, looks like carnosa but the shape is different. They are 7-12 cm long, 3-6 cm wide and have quite a few flecks. The foliage is absolutely gorgeous! This is a hoya that can grow really big and fast!

The flat flowers are white and fuzzy. The corolla is white with the end of the tips folded backwards and the corona is white (looks a little dirty compared to the corolla) with a red center. They are about 1.5 cm and you'll find 20-50 flowers in an umbel. The fragrance is similar to carnosa but not as strong. The flowers last about a week and don't produce as much nectar as carnosa.
