Beautiful plant with medium sized, glabrous, dark green leaves. Hoya dischorensis is a nice plant but not a fast grower. The somewhat slow groth is compensated by it being extremely willing to flower. It is not unkommon that Hoya dischorensis will flower while being rooted - with one or more umbels.

The flowers of Hoya dischorensis are practically identical to those of Hoya kenejiana, Hoya dimorpha, Hoya flavescens Hoya ischnopus, Hoya montana and Hoya trigonolobus. Just a bit more than a centimeter across (approx 2/5"), yellow-orange in color, slightly pubescent with little or no scent.

Thrives in bright light but should be protected from burning sun. Hoya dischorensis tolerates some drought but i's better to water it regularly and not let the soil run completely dry.
