For me this has not been an easy species to cultivate. I have tried, and failed, several times before but it seems I'm finally succeeding.
Hoya bordenii is a quite demanding species. It doesn't like draught or temperatures below average room temperature. It likes lots of light but not direct sunlight. If exposed to the right kind of light the leaves turn beautifully red. It should be kept moist but not wet.
If grown successfully Hoya bordenii will reward its owner with lovely red, reflexed, flowers.
Likes light but should not be exposed to sunlight. A protected window facing west is good.
Tolerates some drought but should not be allowed to run completely dry.
Temperate species. Should not be exposed to draught or temperatures below 17°C. Grows best in an average temperature of 30°C.
Leaf size: 4-5cm × 8-12cm
