A small leaved Hoya suitable for both trellis and hanging baskets. Twines poorly so it may need some help in that department if trellis are preffered.

The leaves of Hoya nummularioides are oval, slightly on the round side, and narrows down to a blunt tip. Just over an inch long and a bit less than an inch wide. Both stem and leaves are pubescent. The surface of the leaf is smooth like velvet. Very nice.

Flowers are small, white petals and a pink corona. Blooms are fragrant and comes in umbels of 15-20.

I find Hoya nummularioides very easy to grow. Does well in a south facing window with some protection from the burning mid day sun. Tolerates some drought.
