Hoya walliniana


“Hoya walliniana was published by Dale Kloppenburg and Torill Nyhuus in 2003.  Christine Burton claimed that Hoya sipitangensis and H. walliniana were the same plant, but Kloppenburg claims the flowers are much smaller on Hoya walliniana. The plant was named for the Swedish Hoya collector Pierre Wallin, and is endemic to Borneo (Sabah and Sarawak) in lowland forests where it is common in very wet environments.

This plant is not forgiving of being overwatered, and is recommended for advanced plant patents / collectors.
