Hoya Caudata

Dhs. 225.00

The Hoya caudata is characterized by its thick, succulent-like leaves that are typically lanceolate or elliptical in shape. The leaves may have a glossy texture and can vary in color from dark green to gray-green. One distinctive feature of Hoya caudata is the presence of long, slender tails or "caudates" at the tips of its leaves, which give the plant a distinctive appearance.

Growing Conditions: Hoya caudata thrives in warm, humid environments with bright, indirect light. When grown as a houseplant, it prefers well-draining soil and regular watering, allowing the soil to dry out slightly between waterings. Providing high humidity levels, either through misting or by placing the plant on a pebble tray filled with water, can also promote healthy growth.

Care: Hoya caudata is relatively low-maintenance and easy to care for, making it suitable for beginner plant enthusiasts. It benefits from occasional pruning to remove dead or damaged foliage and encourage new growth. Additionally, fertilize the plant sparingly during the growing season with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted to half strength.

Blooms: When mature, Hoya caudata can produce clusters of small, star-shaped flowers that are typically white or cream-colored. The flowers are often fragrant and may appear in umbels or clusters at the ends of the plant's stems.
