Hoya sipitangensis Kloppenburg & Wiberg





This hoya comes from Borneo (Sarawak) and it was described in 2002. After my own observations this hoya reminds very much of Hoya walliniana, but I never managed to get them in bloom at the same time before I sold my walliniana.


This hoya is definately best grown hanging. The leaves are dark green with visible veins and have some flecks. They are about 2-7 cm long and 1.5-3 cm wide. New leaves get a burgundy colour and if this hoya is grown in a lot of sun the foliage turn lovely red, some leaves get really red! A beautiful hoya even when it doesn't bloom.


The flowers are creamy white and the corona has a red center.  They are ball-shaped and each flower is about 6 mm. You'll find 25-30 flowers in each umbel and they have a vague sweet fragrance, but don't produce any nectar from what I've seen... The flowers last about a week.
