Variegated variety of the bella theme.

Leaves are just as the type plant, diamond-like shaped, but the leaves are variegated in yellow and creme. A slow grower, which is not uncommon with variegated Hoyas.

Should be placed in a light window and as all forms of Hoya bella it likes to be kept moist. Don't over fertilize as it may make the leaves revert to solid green.

Flowers as type and just as free flowering.
