Hoya Erythrostemma shocking pink is a vigorous vining plant with dark green leaves & light green venation with new growth quite red under sunny conditions. Blooms will reappear repeatedly, flowering off the old flower spurs for years to come.
The blooms comes with hairy reflexed pink flowers with cream-centered burgundy corona. Up to 40 flowers per umbel & nectar producing. The flower lasts for up to one week.
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 .
It makes a nice hanging basket, but also does really well as a mounted plant
