Hoya nummularioides Costantin




This hoya comes from Camboida and Laos and it was published in 1912.

This is a rather slow growing hoya which is best gronw hanging, but I think it would work on a support too though it needs a little help to stay on there... The slightly pubescent leaves are medium green, 2.5-5 cm long and 2-3 cm wide. The leaves are soft and rather thin when young but thicken/harden with age and they have some flecks and no visible veins. The name is said to mean small coin, but only a few of the leaves on my plant are round like coins.

The flat flowers are quite small, only about 6-7 mm in diameter. They have white corollas and the coronas is pink with white tips, have a fragrance that is sweet and quite strong but nice. You'll find 10-30 flowers in each umbel and they last about a week. This hoya often drops its peduncles after flowering. There is also a variety that has yellow instead of pink in the corona.
