Hoya Macrophylla Albomarginata is a climbing plant distinguished by its large, dark green leaves with a unique variegation pattern. Its long, climbing or hanging shoots can grow up to 1-2 meters in length in nature, with less growth in indoor cultivation.

Hoya macrophylla is a species that has some of the largest leaves compared to other Hoya species. These leaves can reach sizes of 15-20 cm in length and 5-7 cm in width, have a lanceolate shape, and an interesting, slightly convex-concave, waffle-like texture. The dark green leaves are covered with a network of light green and cream veins, creating a mosaic pattern. Additionally, the leaves are outlined with a cream-colored border that highlights their shape. In colder temperatures, as well as under intense lighting, the leaves acquire a pink discoloration, especially at the creamy edges.

In the spring and summer season, spherical umbels of small, pale pink, star-shaped flowers with a diameter of about 25 mm bloom on the plant. They emit a specific smell that is most intense at night, while during the day the flowers remain almost odorless. 


Attention! To check the moisture level of the substrate, sticking your finger into the pot to a depth of 2 cm is the best way to measure soil moisture. If you feel the substrate is wet, keep the watering can away for one or two days, and if it feels dry, water it. 


Attention 2! When we talk about watering, we must consider the pot in which the plant is planted, as well as the amount of substrate and its aeration level. For example, do not pour a liter of water into a pot with a diameter and height of 12 cm, as this will drown the plant's roots. It is best to discard the excess water from the collector tray half an hour after watering.
