Hoya serpens Hook f.




This hoya comes from the Himalaya regions and it was described in 1885.


This is a hoya that should be grown as a hanging plant. The leaves are small, almost round, 1.5-2 cm long and 1-1.5 cm wide, hairy and have some silver spots. They are darker green on top than underneath. It seems to like growing a little cooler than other hoyas. I've tried several places for my plant and I'm still looking for the "right" spot...


It's not the easiest hoya to grow, but if you succeed  you'll be rewarded with really cute flowers! The hairy flowers are flat, about 1.5 cm, pale green/lime green corolla, white corona with some pink in the middle. They produce little nectar, have a vague sweet fragrance and last about a week. The fragrance isn't vague when lots of flowers are open at the same time...
