A beautiful plant that is both easily cultivated and fast growing. I recieved Hoya cagayanensis as a two node cutting with three leaves in June 2006. It rooted quickly and started growing. Unfortunately the plant died after a year, just as it was about to bloom, so the precent is a restart of the previous.

The leaves are medium sized and emerald green with a touch of sparkle. The branches are quite thin.

I presently grow Hoya cagayanensis in a self watering pot in a window facing west. The featured plant is one year old and it is the first time it blooms.

Hoya sp. CMF-8 was for a long time sold as Hoya cagayanensis, until the mistake was detected (jan. 2008). Hoya pimenteliana, which this one was previously called, is thus an invalid name but/and can never be used for any other Hoya species in the future.
