When I bought this it was described as having all white corona and corolla, so I was a bit surprized when it bloomed and turned out to have pink coronas. I'm pleased all the same as it took many years of waiting to see the blooms, as has been the case with all Hoya erythrostemma in my collection.

The flowers of Hoya erythrostemma are approx. 10mm in diameter. White and very fuzzy with a glossy, pink corona. Scent is very faint.

This clone of Hoya erythrostemma has medium sized leaves with prominent veins. Very beautiful.

Tolerates to dry some but will be more beautiful if kept slightly moist. Light but no direct sunlight which will burn the leaves.
