Hoya collina (sp. IR 26)



I bought this hoya as an unrooted cutting in September 2008. I just fell head over heals in love with the leaves! They are absolutely gorgeous, even more so when the plant gets lots of sunshine. Then the foliage turns red... I had my plant on a stand at first, but I've recently changed it to a hanging pot. This hoya doesn't climb on its own, so I would say it's best grown hanging.


Since I got the cutting I've cut it several times to get a fuller pot... The flowers are a lot like the ones on sp. Biak, but the corona has more red in the center. This hoya bloomed a lot faster than my sp. Biak. On IR 26 I got to see the flowers for the first time in November 2010 and it has bloomed a few times since then. A nice hoya that doesn't take up too much space too fast!
