In commerce as Hoya gracilis for many years before it was published as Hoya memoria. As in many other cases the change of names has still not come through completeley thus it still appears as Hoya gracilis
Hoya memoria is a small growing and neat species. Branches are thin and the leaves are covered with silver flecks. Hoya memoria can be grown in a hanging basket or on trellis as it is both hanging and climbing. As most things the choice of method is a matter of preferense. It is also a very forgiving species, can be placed in shade and still bloom, though I believe east or west is more ideal.
Hoya memoria tolerates some drought but becomes more lush and beautiful if watered and fertilized regularly. Best is not to let it run completely dry but keep some moist in the soil at all times.
The leaves of Hoya memoria are long and narrow. Approx 2" long and 1/2 an inch wide. Dark green and silver flecked. Glabrous.
Hoya memoria bloomes with flat umbels and furry flowers. Each individual flower is small, almost round by the petals bending backwards, pubescent and fragrant. Similar to Hoya brevialata but much smaller.
Should not be exposed to sunlight.. A shaded window facing west or east is good.
Tolerates some drought but should not be allowed to run completely dry.
Intermediate species. Tolerates short exposure to temperatures no less than 10°C. Best grown in a regular room temperature of 20-25°C.
