Hoya sp. 'Ban Ngong Ngoy'
This easy to grow species is found in Thailand. Hoya sp. 'Ban Hgong Ngoy' prefers bright light, but will tolerate much less. 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. This plant produces a cluster of deep pink star-like flowers that are heavily scented and produce a sugary nectar. 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.
