The hoya 'mathilde' is just so darn cute. Mathilde is the offspring of Hoya serpens and Hoya carnosa. Those fat little round leaves are cute as a button and the peduncles produce flowers quite frequently as well. The smell of this one is yummy and its small clusters of white and pink fuzzy flowers on its tiny silver flecked leaves just make you go awe ❤ Grow in a pot on a small trellis or in a hanging basket and let it trail over the pot’s edge. It likes bright light, even some direct, and to be watered when it's well draining soil is dry or when the leaves start to pucker.
This plant has been growing roots in clay pebbles and about 75% humidity with lots of bright indirect light. New root growth is small. This plant will be shipped bare root in sphagnum moss. Some clay pebbles may be stuck to the plant's small root system. We left it so as not to disturb the root growth. The plants pictured, are the ones for sale. Plant has just been rooted. Do not expect a mature root system. Once plant rooted, it was repotted in a nice soil mix for Hoya. Leave the Hoya in the 3" pot for at least a month before replanting as new roots are delicate and should not be disturbed. Take care not to over water.
