Description

Hoya macrophylla albomarginata is a very unique hoya that has spectacular trailing foliage and beautiful flowers.

'Albomarginata' has green, white sometimes pink variegated leaves that have more variegation in cooler months, and when exposed to more light. The leaves are the largest among all the Hoyas, getting about 6 to 8 inches long. Small tendrils pop out on the stems to grab some support. In the warm season, the vine enhances its beauty by clusters of tiny yellowish to pale pink fragrant flowers.

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
