Product info

In nature this Hoya can only be found in the tiny tropical country of Sabah on the island of Borneo. Here it lives as an epiphyte high up in the trees. Hoya danumensis has only recently been recognised as a separate species, and was formerly considered to be Hoya wallichii. The main differences are that Hoya danumensis is particularly easier to grow and the shape and colour of the flowers are slightly different. This tropical species stands out with its remarkably large flowers, which grow in bunches called ‘peduncles’. Late at night these flowers can emit a faint but pleasant smell. When the plant is not flowering, it will still give a great tropical vibe to your house!

Plant care

Although this Hoya requires a little more care some of the easier species, it can be a rewarding and fast growing houseplant suited for most conditions. The most important thing for this Hoya is to have a regular, consistent watering regime. This plant does not like to have a dry or soggy soil. It is especially suited for a self-watering container. Furthermore this exotic species will do well with every bit of additional humidity you can give it, preferably within 40%-80%. It will also grow better when its warm (18⁰C-25⁰C), but will do fine in normal temperatures. This Hoya prefers to grow in a well-draining soil mix, containing bark, perlite and regular peat soil. As most Hoya’s, this plant prefers bright indirect light. A windowsill with eastern or western exposure would be very well suited.
