Hoya erythrina is in my oppinion an easy Hoya to grow. Easily rooted and doesn't seem to be very demanding in any whay.

A climer that does best on trellis but since the leaves are rather large it needs space to grow on, so don't choose a trelli too small. The braches are rather thin in comparison to the leaves but still robust and turn woodlike quickly.

Flowers of Hoya erythrina are yellow and very beautiful however few in umbel. Produces lots of nectar but does not drip as much as one could imagine.

Hoya erythrina is a reliable plant that can take lots of sun and drought, but don't let it wilt. Leaves turn red in sunlight.
