Each Leaf on Hoya sigillatis Varies

This continues to be a very sought after hoya for many reasons one being the at each leaf on Hoya sigillatis varies in color and speckling. I know it may be a bear to root but when it does sprout roots it will continue to grow steadily and fill out a beautiful hanging pot.  I have grown this one from a cutting many times and I have yet to figure out exactly what makes this one happy.  The plants have grown beautifully and then reduced the growth down to almost one vine.  While growing in Florida it seemed the happiest if it hung under the overhang of the lanai and I watered it with each pass (3 times per week).  But when I packed it up into box to truck ship to PA it sulked and I had to begin again with a few viable sprigs.

When you get this one to grow and vine out to put out blooms you will confirm it was worth the trouble.  The flowers appear at an unexpected moment and they are unique in shape and color.  I must admit the color clashes with the leaves but who am I to judge Mother Nature?  I grow this one in high light which promotes a variation on each leaf.  The leaves vary in size, color and how much speckling they posses…very beautiful.
