HOYA ACUTA PINK FORM
Hoya acuta comes from Indonesia, Thailand and Malaysia and is a member of the Asclepiadaceae family. Hoya acuta pink form is a fast growing species with smaller spaced oval shaped leaves on fast vigorous vines. Flowers are fragrant and appear in tight umbels of 15 – 40 and are pink and then fading to whitish colour. This Hoya is a repeat bloomer. The foliage is green to a possible bronze colour depending on light levels. That said this species is suitable for growing indoors. INDOORS: Most Hoya are well suited to hanging baskets or ladders and can be grown indoors under pot culture in a warm position but flowering is sometimes difficult.
SOILS: The vine will enjoy most soil types but prefers well drained gravelly soils, moist but not wet, warm but frost free above 4 degrees.
PLANTING: Dig the hole twice the size of the pot and plant level with the surrounding soil. Mounding can help with wetter soils.
CARE: Prune after flowering but don’t cut off flower buds as flowers appear each year on them. Fertilise during growing period and withdraw water in the colder months. Mulch well to conserve water.
