Hoya cv ruthie is a fast grower & a beautiful Hoya. When full grown, the leaves are large, almost round, fuzzy, and light to emerald green in color. The flowers on these are absolutely breath-taking! They are a 5 pointed star shape that curves upward in somewhat of a cup shape.
The entire umbel of flowers are only around 2 inches across, Flowers can vary, but can expect yellows, sunset tones, oranges, and some red bursts.
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
