Pink flowering form of the usually white eriostemma. Easy to grow but difficult to bring to bloom. Needs lots of sunlight, humidity and moist to flower.

When I first recieved this species the leaves on the cutting were considerably smaller than it's white flowering sibling. About 40mm long and 20mm wide (1,5" x 3/4"). With age it has changed it's appearence tho and now it looks just like the other Hoya coronaria in my collection. I suspect is has to do with the light conditions here in Sweden. Both leaves and branches are quite bright green and pubescent as most eriostemmas.
