Focus on Hoya caudata Gold SRQ 3240

The plant can be a bit temperamental if allowed to dry out at all. I water this one usually every other day with a bit of water…but do not drench each time.  The relatively large, thick, heavy, stiff and marbled leaves are a beautiful backdrop to this bloom cluster.  The leaves resemble a green colored slab or marble or granite.  The leaf variations are as stable as the flower color for me.

Despite my hesitation to rely on the name of a hoya that contains a color, this one has been very consistently gold in color as opposed to the other Hoya caudatas that bloom with more of a white to very pale green flower.   This happens to be my favorite bloom and I even had a mouse-pad printed with a photo of Hoya caudata IML 1882.
