Hoya Sweet Scent is a woody, epiphyte or scrambling shrub with reflexed flowers that have sort of creamy corolla with pink tips and the corona is pink with lighter tips. These leaves are 7-10 cm long and 5-7 cm wide, have some flecks and visible nerves.

Sometimes the flowers are more pink and sometimes less, probably due to access of light. The flowers are about 1 cm in diameter and you'll find 15-25 flowers in each umbel. The fragrance is, like the name suggests, sweet and actually sort of fresh at the same time. This is a hoya that produces a lot of nectar and the flowers last 4-5 days. 


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
