Hoya thailandica Thaithong




This hoya comes from Thailand, just as the name indicates and it was described in 2001. It's a rather new hoya and there seem to be a few different clones in circulation.


It seems to be a hoya that is best grown on a support. The leaves are medium to dark green with visible lighter veins, 6-9 cm long and 3-5 cm wide. With its lovely foliage it's a lovely plant even without flowers.


The flowers are rather big in comparison to the size of the leaves... The corolla is white and the corona is yellow with some red in the middle. Each flower is about 2.5 cm, flat with a tendency to cup shaped. You'll find 8-15 flowers in an umbel. The flowers are said to last almost two weeks (mine opened on July 14th) and they produce little or no nectar. The fragrance is hard to describe, but the closest I can get is that it's like citrus and a little musty at the same time without being unpleasant...
