Interesting Hoya with long and narrow leaves. The whole plant is slightly pubescent.

Hoya hypolasia is an easily rooted and relatively easy to cultivate. Requires some warmth and moist to thrive but does well in normal room temperature as well although it might grow slower. Can be slow to start with anyway, but usually makes up for it with time.

The leaves are very large in comparison to the very thin branches. They are very rigid and break off easily if one is not careful.

Flowers large, yellow or greenish in color.
