Hoya flagellata Kerr

 

 


 

This hoya comes from Thailand and it was published in 1940. In 1999 Torill Nyhuus, Ed Gilding and Ted Green collected Hoya flagellata TN99-024 on Mt Jearai. David Liddle also had this clone and gave it number IML 1681. Hoya flagellata is quite similar to Hoya caudata.

 

This hoya is rather easy to grow, but it doesn't grow too fast so it's easy to keep on a smaller support. The hard leaves are similar to Hoya caudata, but has a lot less spots. They can become more or less red if grown in strong light and they are 3 - 7 cm long and 2 - 3 cm wide.

 

The almost flat flowers are very hairy, about 2 cm before they curl up the corolla tips backwards. The flowers have mostly white corolla, but it can be a little pink if grown in strong light. The corona is dark pink, almost red and there are long "hairs" sticking out of the center of the corona. In each umbel there are 10-15 flowers. They have no fragrance/no nectar and they last about 4 days. These flowers seem to close up during the days and open up again during the nights...
