One of the most spectacular of all Hoyas. Huge, light green leaves with a webb of dark green veins. The leaves are actually so large the might become a problem if the plant is growing on trellis. The largest on my plant is 25cm long and 15cm wide (10" by 6") Despite the size of the leaves the branches are considerably thinner than expected, though very sturdy. It really doesn't look like any other Hoya.

The flowers are quite anonymous in comparison to the leaves. Yellow, somewhat transparent.

Easily rooted and cultivated. This is a fun species to have. It's a delightful addition to any collection - providing you have space for it.

Also in circulation as Hoya meredithii
