a tree-like hoya that puts out new growth seemingly from each node - roots well in moist to wet mix and this is a hoya that I believe you could grow in a self-watering pot for a less maintenance method - speckles are very evident and often look like dust on the leaves - this is one of the most unique hoyas that I grow - blooms in the month of May with beautiful shiny shooting stars that point downward and resemble fireworks

"Uneven papery leaves deliciously graced with a smattering of pale green freckles.  Like tiny scraps of origami paper, they curve from nodes that spiral up the thick upright stalk, giving it the appearance of a tiny untidy palm. Easy going, it grows swiftly, its new leaves iridescent and as soft as new silk ribbons." - JLD

(Some of the gorgeous bloom photos are compliments of Doug Chamberlain who gave me permission to share with you here. To see more of his hoyas go to VermontHoyas.com)

KEY to Species Detail

Cuttings can be a quick and inexpensive way to expand your collection. I offer cuttings of at least 2 nodes and many more when my Mother Plants allow.

1. Fill a tiny pot (no larger than 3 inches) with a loose light mix or soil.
2. Trim the stem one approximately inch below the bottom node.
3. Tuck the freshly cut end into your soil.
4. Keep soil/mix wet until roots appear. When you tug on the cutting and it seems stable...roots are evident.
5. Reduce watering and continue to mist but only water when the soil is nearly dry.

Grow the rooted cutting in a tiny pot until its roots have filled it or is unmanageable due to being top heavy. Over-potting is the quickest way to cause your hoya to rot.
Have fun and remember that hoyas thrive on neglect.

PLANTS
Unpack the plant carefully...there might just be a peduncle on it!
Remove as much of the shredded packing from the mix as possible...some left behind will go away.
Be sure to unclip any vine that is facing downward.
If you don’t, the vine may die back to a node that is not forced down.
Water and mist the plant well since it has been a few days since it has seen any moisture
It’s best to let it in the clear pot for a week so it may become acclimated to it’s new surroundings.
After that you may repot but in the same size pot...DO NOT OVER POT!
Over-potting can cause...root rot...stunted growth... no blooms.
Most hoyas prefer to be root bound in order to thrive and reward you with the gorgeous blooms!

CUTTINGS
Fill a shallow tray or container with warm water and a few drops of Superthrive, Eleanor's VF-11 or MSU. (these aid in plant energy)
Gently float the cuttings in the water and soak for a few hours to overnight, depending on the dehydration level.
When the cuttings have had the chance to plump up and regain moisture, they are ready for the rooting process.
If you are not able to immediately pot the cuttings up for rooting, keep them in the tray and provide humidity thru misting or showering them twice a day.

While on a trip I once collected hoya cuttings and kept them in my hotel shower for the duration of the 10 day trip.
I then put them into my carry on bag and rooted them when I returned home.
