Introducing the Hoya subcalva – a botanical gem that captivates both the eyes and the senses. If you crave the delightful aroma of grape juice or grape gum, this enchanting plant is an absolute essential for your collection. Native to the lush landscapes of Papua New Guinea, the Hoya subcalva boasts exquisite pink flowers that hang gracefully from its vining stems, filling your space with a sweet mix of candy and exotic fruit fragrances.

Cultivation Tips:

  1. Light Requirements: Provide your Hoya subcalva with partial sun to bright, indirect light. This will mimic its natural habitat and promote healthy growth.

  2. Container Choice: Optimal growth can be achieved by planting this beauty in a hanging basket or staking it in a pot. The vining nature of the plant allows for stunning displays as it cascades or climbs.

  3. Soil and Watering: Use well-draining soil to prevent waterlogged roots. Allow the top inch of soil to dry out before watering. Consistent, moderate watering is key to keeping your Hoya subcalva thriving.

  4. Temperature and Humidity: Maintain a warm environment, as this tropical plant thrives in temperatures between 65-80°F (18-27°C). Additionally, higher humidity levels will contribute to the overall well-being of your Hoya subcalva.

  5. Feeding: During the growing season (spring and summer), provide a balanced liquid fertilizer every 2-4 weeks to support robust foliage and vibrant blooms.

Floral Splendor:

The deep pink flowers of the Hoya subcalva are truly a sight to behold, adorned with a subtle apricot streak on the corolla. The blossoms emit an irresistible fragrance, reminiscent of a delightful blend of candy and exotic fruits. One can't help but be drawn to the mesmerizing scent as it permeates the air, making it an ideal addition to any living space.

Long-lasting Elegance:

The allure of the Hoya subcalva extends beyond its blossoms. The vibrant green leaves, measuring approximately 15 cm in length and 5 cm in width, provide a lush backdrop to the stunning flowers. While lacking the silver spots found in some Hoya varieties, the solid green leaves add a touch of simplicity and elegance to the overall aesthetic.

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

Indulge your senses and elevate your indoor gardening experience with the Hoya subcalva. Whether you place it on a tabletop or let it cascade from a hanging basket, this plant is sure to become a focal point in your botanical haven. Embrace the beauty, the fragrance, and the joy that the Hoya subcalva brings to your home.
