Also known as a Hoya "affinis", the Hoya Eliptica is an interesting vining plant which shows off leaves featuring white veining which feature an almost turtle shell-like pattern. The leaves themselves are rather thin, and when in bloom, Hoya elliptica produces white star-shaped flowers with red centers.
Water: Allow soil to dry out between deep watering's. Ensure that all excess water is able to drain away, and that plant isn't sitting in standing water, as this may lead to rot.
Light: The Hoya Elliptica thrives best in bright, indirect light. The more light, the more variegation and colour on the leaves.
Soil: Does best in a well draining, tropical potting soil. One containing bark, moss, and vermiculite is ideal.
Humidity: Hoya's can tolerate standard humidity levels, but thrive in higher humidity. They will definitely benefit from a daily misting or being placed on a pebble tray.
Fertilizer: Fertilize your hoyas once a month using a dilute solution of liquid houseplant fertilizer. Do not fertilize in winter months.
NOTE: The plant you receive will not be the exact plant pictured! The number/size of leaves will likely be different as each plant is unique in its own way. If concerned, please ask for a photo of the particular plant you would receive prior to shipping/picking up your order.
