Hoya calycina Schlechter




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


This is a fast growing hoya that belongs to the same group, Pterostelma, as Hoya australis, magnifica and albiflora. It's best grown on a large support since it grows fast and this pubescent vine twines around anything it gets hold of! The leaves are big, pubescent with some visible veins. The size of the leaves vary from 9-15 cm long and 5-8 cm wide.


The flowers are a little cupshaped, white with white coronas and there is some red behind the corona. These beautiful flowers measure almost 3 cm, produce big drops of nectar and last about 10 days. The fragrance is sweet and very strong, almost too strong...
