Introducing the Exquisite Hoya archboldiana var. White – A Floral Masterpiece from the Green Legacy

Behold the captivating beauty of Hoya archboldiana var. White, an exceptional clone distinguished by its large, pristine white flowers adorned with a striking red center when fully mature. This particular variety, sourced directly from the esteemed Ted Green's collection, boasts a unique charm with its distinctly white blooms, setting it apart from the more common cream-colored alternatives.

Cultivating Tips:

1. Light Requirements: Provide your Hoya archboldiana var. White with bright, indirect light for optimal growth. Avoid exposing it to harsh, direct sunlight, as this may cause leaf burn.

2. Soil: Use well-draining, aerated soil to ensure the plant's roots receive adequate oxygen. A mix of orchid bark, perlite, and sphagnum moss can create an ideal growing medium.

3. Watering: Allow the soil to dry out between waterings, as Hoyas prefer slightly drier conditions. Overwatering can lead to root rot, so maintain a careful balance to keep your plant thriving.

4. Temperature and Humidity: Keep your Hoya archboldiana var. White in a warm and humid environment, replicating its native tropical conditions. Aim for temperatures between 65-80°F (18-27°C) and higher humidity levels.

5. Fertilization: Feed your Hoya with a balanced, diluted fertilizer during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce or cease fertilization during the dormant winter months.
