One of the easiest Hoyas to cultivate. Easy to root and maintain as it doesn't make any demands. However, it sometimes grows out branches with very long internodes giving the plant a rather dull appearence. Hoya diversifolia doesn't climb well on it's own so it needs help around the trellis. The branches sould be twined around the trellis quickly as they soon become stiff. The support should be stable from the beginning as the plant soon becomes very heavy.

Hoya diversifolia tolerates lots of sun and drought. Can actually survive without water until the leaves are thin and wrinkled. Although the plant can survive this it is not a treatment that is recommended. Water regularly but allow the soil to dry some in between.

The actual blooming is a bit peculiar with this form of Hoya diversifolia. The buds, 10-20 per umbel, can open all at once or one at the time making the flowering last very long or pass quickly. Produces lots of nectar that is clear at first but turns darker each day until it looks like brown amber. Fragrance is quite faint.
