Hoya eitapensis Schlechter




This hoya comes from New Guinea and it was described in 1913.


It's a climbing hoya with rather small light green leaves. It doesn't twine too good, so some help to stay on the support is required. The leaves are 3-8 cm long and 1.5-3 cm wide, have very few flecks and turn red when grown in sunshine. Nice looking little hoya that reminds of Hoya anulata.


The flowers are very similar to the ones of Hoya anulata. They are flat, about 1-1.5 cm, white corolla with yellow corona. They have very similar fragrance to Hoya anulata, but not as strong. They last about one week and produce small drops of nectar.
