When Hoya wightii was first published only one species was known. In 1992 the subspecies palniensis was published... and then there were two.

As I don't know anyone who grows Hoya wightii I haven't been able to take part of anyone elses experiences. I grow it in pure coconut fiber (NeoPeat) and I allow the medium to go slightly dry before I water again. The leaves are fairly thick so I think it tolerates some drought.

I'ts a slow growing species with beautiful, light green, leaves.
