Introducing Hoya caudata var. 'sumatra' – a rare and enchanting addition to your indoor garden! Originating from Southeast Asia, this Hoya variety is a true standout with its captivating burgundy leaves and distinctive ovate shape. The irregular, rippled margins and slight fuzziness of the leaves create a unique texture, making it a conversation piece in any room.

Appearance: The stiff, slightly hairy leaves start their journey in a solid green hue, gradually transforming into a rich, dark green over time. However, the real spectacle lies in the furry, white, star-shaped flowers that grace this Hoya when it blooms. The parachute clusters of flowers with their five-point centers are unlike anything else, adding an element of magic to your living space.

Cultivation Tips: Caring for Hoya caudata var. 'sumatra' is a rewarding experience. Follow these simple tips to ensure your plant thrives:

Light: Provide your Hoya with medium to bright, indirect light. It thrives in well-lit spaces but avoid exposing it to direct sunlight for extended periods.

Water: Keep a watchful eye on the soil moisture. Water your Hoya when the top 1-2 inches of soil feels dry to the touch. Unlike some other Hoyas, 'sumatra' prefers not to go completely bone dry. However, exercise caution to prevent overwatering, as good drainage is essential.

Soil: Select a well-draining soil mix to ensure optimal growing conditions for your Hoya. Additionally, choose a planter with drainage holes to prevent waterlogging, which can be detrimental to the health of your plant.

This is a plant division in a 2.5” pot, about 1 to 2 years to bloom, grown from seed, limited!

Bring a touch of the exotic into your home with Hoya caudata var. 'sumatra.' Whether you're a seasoned plant enthusiast or a beginner looking for a stunning yet low-maintenance addition to your collection, this Hoya is sure to captivate with its unique foliage and charming blooms. Elevate your indoor gardening experience with the allure of 'sumatra' – a true gem among Hoyas!
