Hoya dasyantha

$50.00

Hoya dasyantha is a vining epiphytic plant in the dogbane family Apocynaceae. It has attractive waxy foliage and produces sweetly scented flowers. Native to Hainan, China, it makes an easy houseplant, ideally suited for pots or a hanging basket.

Though it will tolerate low temperatures (but not freezing), 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. The plant photo is an example of what you can expect to receive.  They are rooted cuttings with new growth evident and should take about 2-3 years to reach flowering size.
