This is a fast growing climber with beautiful leaves. I recieved it as a medium sized cutting in May 2006. A year later it had grown into the plant featured in the photo. The first time it bloomed in June 2007 it had three umbels opened at the same time.

The leaves of Hoya chloratha are small to medium sized, approx. 70mm long and 25mm wide and quite thin. Light green with a beautiful pattern from the darker veins. The twining vines are quite slender. Avoid letting the soil run dry. Hoya chloratha prefers even moist.

Flowers are 20mm in diameter, usually green but sometimes slightly yellow. Just slightly scented.
