I received Hoya endauensis as a small cutting with two pairs of leaves. It was slow to root and it seemed impossible to make it grow. The seller had warned me that it was a slow grower, but this was ridiculous. After a year the cutting still had only the leaves it came with. Four years later it had grown ten pairs of leaves...

Four years after the cutting was bought we moved to a house in the countryside. The indoor climate was completely different from the dry apartment. The small plant suddenly started growing, and a year later the ten pairs of leaves had multiplied to at least 50. Today, almost six years after I got it the plant is rather big with long branches running several times around the approx. 30 cm high trellis.

I grow Hoya endauensis in a self watering pot and it's placed in a window facing west. It likes high humidity.
