Large leaved Hoya from Thailand, though the species is found in many forms in other parts of Asia. This one is also in trade as Hoya sp. Chieng Mai.

The umbels of this clone of Hoya pottsii are really impressive. Large umbels with up to 60 fragrant flowers. It doesn't produce much nectar. The entire plant is stunning with its glossy foliage.

The down side with this plant is that it quickly turns large and heavt and it doesn't seem to either climb or hang - at least not climb up the trellis. It needs lots of support not to fall over by it's own weight.

Grow Hoya pottsii in filtered light. The leaves burn easily in sunlight. Don't let it dry too much. Slightly moist is good.
