Description

Hoya Diversifolia Crassipes looks similar to Hoya diversifolia. The flowers are the same size and shape, but are much more darker pink than the H. diversifolia and the leaves are similar as well, but much smaller. The flowers are pretty and so are the buds. It blooms nonstop during the warmer months on mature plants. It grows very full, fast and looks nice in a hanging basket.

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
