Hoya lanceolata ssp. bella – Rooted Cuttings
Hoya lanceolata ssp. bella
Sometimes listed simply as Hoya bella.
An interesting small leaved Hoya that’s great as a trailing or climbing houseplant. Very effective when grown in an indoor hanging basket or cascading from a pot on a shelf.
Hoya prefer indirect light, full sun will scorch the leaves. They require well draining potting medium, most houseplant enthusiasts have their own compost preference but as a general guideline we suggest a blend of 1 part fine bark, 1 part multipurpose compost and 1 part perlite. Water regularly through the summer months when the plant is actively growing, allowing the compost to dry a little between waterings. Like other epiphytes, Hoya benefit from a occasional misting too. They are not especially hungry plants where feeding is concerned, we tend to mist with a foliar feed every 2 – 4 weeks using our Tillandsia Feed – a specially formulated feed for epiphytic plants.
Hoya are native to Burma, India and China. Also called ‘Wax Flower’, Hoya produce scented near white flowers with rich pink centres.
