Small leaved Hoya with almost round, convex, leaves. The upper side is sparsely flecked. Hoya brevialata is often confused with Hoya incurvula which it much resembles. Also sold as Hoya sp. Sulawesi

A rather fast grower. Often sends out long leafless stems that can remain without leaves for some time. It's not unusual that it flowers from these stems before new leaves appear.

In my experience it does best in a hanging basket. It does twine but the stems hang down gracefully when hung high.

The flowers can appear at any time of the year but mostly during spring and summer. They are yellow to creme colored or slightly pink with a red and yellow corona. Has a sweet scent at night.
