Plant Description

This hoya originates from Assam, China South-Central, East Himalaya, Laos, Myanmar & Tibet. It is commonly called the fish-tail hoya because of the veining in the leaves. It is suited as a hanging plant as the flowers hang below the leaves.

Hoya polyneura prefers bright light, but will tolerate much less. Though it will tolerate lower temperatures (not below 10°C), the optimal temperature is 16–29°C. It benefits from an open potting medium that allows some air to get to the roots. Typical mixes include large-grade drainage material such as perlite, pumice, or bark balls. The plants should be fed regularly with Flowering Orchid Tucker from early spring and then Growing Orchid Tucker when finished flowering. Moderate your watering regime in accordance to your temperatures i.e. weekly in summer to every two weeks in winter. If in doubt, err on the side of under-watering.

It has a cluster of pale green star-like flowers that are heavily scented and produce a sugary nectar. Rooted cuttings should take about 2-3 years to reach flowering size.
