This one's going to be popular! All the waxy floral gorgeousness of hoya, with this really unusual deep red colour and star-shaped flower almost like an undersea creature. Hoyas need a little special care to help them look good but once you have that in place they're very rewarding plants to grow.
APPEARANCE: Exotic climber/trailer with fleshy succulent leaves and star shaped red waxy flowers in clusters. USE IN: Beautiful indoor and conservatory plant for cooler states, or outside in subtropical gardens LOCATION: Plant in free-draining compost or orchid mix in bright or dappled light in the garden or indoors. In far north Queensland they may flower less due to the warm winters CARE: Keep it on the dry side, especially in the cooler months when growth slows. A cooler spot in winter seems to encourage flowering when the warmer summer weather returns. Mist regularly to maintain humidity if the air is dry. This species tends to like a more alkaline soil too. HEIGHT & WIDTH: 3m H x 0.2m W. YOUNG PLANTS: These are tubestock plants with a healthy young root system and will establish quickly in your garden. The pot height is 80 mm x 42 mm wide. May be supplied as 'plugs', slightly smaller than our usual tubestock but with a healthy root system ready for planting or potting on.
