On offer is a one-node fresh cutting of Hoya bilobata with two leaves. This will cut on the day that it will be sent/shipped and will be sent wrapped in spagmoss.
SHORT INFORMATION ABOUT THIS HOYA:
Hoya bilobata is endemic to the Philippines. It is named after its distingushed characteristics of having corona scales with two rather large lobes or bilobes. The lobes are actually recurved sides of the horizontal corona scales, which produced beyond the dorsal apex of the dorsal apex of the scale itself.
- This hoya will easily root in
- Spaghnum moss
- Coco Fibre/Perlite mix
Honestly, if youre looking to buy this Hoya already, that means your Hoya obsession has already levelled up and you already know how to grow and look after your Hoya, so you probably dont need any information , but a short reminder below:
- this hoya is very easy to grow and it blooms frequently.
- because of the small size of the plant, it prefers a rather small container with good drainage or to be mounted on a log, slab, fern pole, or tree limbs using moss.
- can be grown inside under grow lights or in a bright spot . Can be close to the window but based on my experience, NZ sun can burn Hoya leaves so avoid full sunlight if growing outside or its by the window. (Note: I dont really care about weather it is North Facing window or South facing window, if its getting 70 to 80 percent natural or artificial lighting, then it will flourish).
Being a tropical plant it doesnt like the cold weather so if youre growing this outside, bring it inside from May to September.
Generally, during the day, you should try to keep the air humidity around 60 to 80 percent. And, at night, you want to increase the humidity all the way and keep it between 80 and 100 percent.
Watering depends on your substrate: If you are using chunkier and lighter mix (like bark mixed with perlite etc), then you should water more often. If you are using a heavier substrate, then you water less often. If your Hoya bilobata is attached to a fern slab, then you want it to be moist all the time. My Hoyas planted in hanging plastic pots which are outside are watered every two days because the water drains so fast. Those that are inside are being watered every week if they are in chunkier/more fast draining substrate.
HELPFUL TIP: Water during the day, preferably in the morning and avoid watering at night. They do sleep too, if the stomata is already closed (at night) then there will be no transpiration happening. If you water during the day, the plant has the whole day for transpiration
