Description

Hoya Archboldiana is a large growing plant with very hard and large leaves up to 20 x 7cm approx 8 x 3 oval shaped but narrows down to a sharp tip at the edge . Sometimes leaves can look a bit like a canoe as the mid nerve is sometimes sunk into the leaf .

The flowers are large up to 2 inches or 5cm across, bell shaped bright red flowers with white under the corona. The outer tips of the petals are reflexed. The flowers hold almost 14 days

Hoya archboldiana will with time become huge if allowed to grow freely so it needs sturdy support to climb on.

Environment

Easy to grow & don"t require much attention. Hoya do best in filtered light or with lots of artificial light in indoors.

Hoya plants don't ask for much, beyond the well-draining soil and the warm humid conditions ((similar to bromeliads and orchids)

They are epyphite, can be grown in orchid medium or light potting mix with lots of bark conditioner. Hoya like the security of a snug pot, and plants that are a bit root bound will flower more prolifically than those that are swimming around in a giant pot.

This plant is attractive to bees, butterflies and/or birds .

Landscape Use

It makes a nice hanging basket, but also does really well as a mounted plant
