Hoya kentiana 'Variegata' is a very special draping house plant. New growth has brilliant pink variegated leaves that fade to an inconsistent green white variegation; creating an attractive umber effect. Over time kentiana 'Variegata' can become quite long and full.
The hot pink flowers are small, circular, and star-shaped with 5 petals and a dark center. These fragrant flowers grow in clumps.
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
