Hoya hypoplasia is a member of the Asclepiadaceae family and is native to Papua New Guinea.
The leaves are 160 mm long and 45 mm wide and the vine is a little slow growing to start with then stand back.
The flowers are yellowish with a golden yellow corona. Each flower has 15-25 individual flowers in each umbel. It has very little fragrance and the flowers last about 5 days.
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 dont 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.
SIT BACK AND ENJOY!
