Hoya polyneura ‘Fishtail’


Hoya polyneura is a delicate, pendent, epiphytic plant with thin, light green leaves with dark green fish-bone veins. With correct care, time and patience, this plant will produce clusters of fragrant, star-shaped, creme/maroon flowers.

Hoya polyneura is an easy care plant that is well suited to a very bright space with some direct sunlight. Compared to other indoor plants, this Hoya requires less watering, similar to that of succulents. It should be kept compact in a well draining Hoya mix and re-potted rarely, approximately every 2 years.

To assist the Hoya polyneura to produce, force the plant to dry out at the end of winter, which will encourage buds to form. Don't be upset if flowers don't form on your first try! Growing Hoya's is a talent that any plant lover should take on as a challenge to develop your growing skills. The Hoya is a perfect plant for a long term relationship.
