A large leaved species from the paradise of Hoyas - Papua New Guinea. Hoya onychoides is much like Hoya macgillivrayi and Hoya archboldiana in general appearence. The leaves are glossy and usually with dimples along the mid nerve.

Hoya onychoides becomes quite large with time and needs lots of space to grow on. Prefers some space around it's feet too and is quite thirsty. It doesn't like to run dry but not stand wet either. Try to keep even moist.

I grow my Hoya onychoides in a self watering pot in a shaded window facing south where it gets lots of light bun little direct sunlight that would burn the leaves.
