Hoya sigillatis Green





This hoya comes from Sabah on Borneo (Malaysia) and it was published in 2004. This hoya has been sold under different names before, like sp. Flecked Leaf and hasseltii, but the correct name for this hoya should be sigillatis. The name sigillatis means many marks/flecks. Hoya hasseltii is, I believe, another hoya...


This hoya is best grown as a hanging plant. The leaves are rather small, about 2,5-8 cm long and 1-1.5 cm wide. The leaves have lots of grey flecks and some can almost be considered covered with it! The leaves are normally green under the grey flecks, but if this hoya is grown in bright sun the leaves will get a lovely red colour and the foliage on this hoya is absolutely gorgeous!


The flowers are recurved, about 8-9 mm in diameter and you'll find about 20-25 flowers in each umbel. The corolla is sort of apricot orange and the corona is more towards yellow. The flowers last about a week and were said to have no fragrance, but I've noticed a butter scotch fragrance. There is also a variety with pink flowers, NS 07-039.
