Large, round green leaves, speckled with white or pink are the appeal of this hoya. Naturally growing in tree trunks and vining their way towards the light, Hoya obovata is epiphytic and prefers fast draining, airy potting mix. Given enough light this hoya produces white/pale pink flowers from Spring to Autumn. 

Please note these plants are very large and will be sent semi-bare root. They are hardy and epiphytic and are very tolerant of this.

We are now adding in 'Transport risk' in the product description as some plants are more delicate than others and/or find transport stressful. We will rate in terms of Low, Medium or High risk and discuss specifically to the plant in question. If this information is not provided yet please feel free to reach out via email to ask. Please also note that if plants are sent with new leaves that haven't had the chance to harden off they are susceptible to physical damage in transit as the slightest touch can cause it. 

Please note that we use 'Bugs for Bugs' regularly as a preventative control measure for pests. These predatory bugs are administered in vermiculite. This vermiculite is sprinkles onto the leaves and sometimes remains. 

We know that sometimes it's hard to get an idea of the size of the plant your are purchasing. Photos can make plants look bigger than they actually are. That's why we've made it easy. In each listing you will notice a photo with a background with lines drawn. These lines are distanced 5cm away from each other and the photographs are taken straight on with products against the wall. These photos will be the best indicator of size.
