The Hoya Optimistic is such a beautiful Hoya! When full grown, the leaves are large, almost round, fuzzy, and emerald green in color. The flowers on these are absolutely breath-taking! They are a 5 pointed star shape that curves upward in somewhat of a cup shape. Each flower is about 1 1/2 inches and each cluster can contain 20-30 flowers! The center of the flower is light lemon yellow that gradually turns to red brown edges. This plant requires a lot of light and humidity. Will grow very fast up a trellis once it is acclimated.
This plant has been growing in a loose soil mix and about 75% humidity with lots of bright indirect light. New root growth is small. The plant will be shipped as pictured. The plant pictured is the exact one for sale. Plant has just been rooted. Do not expect a mature root system. 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.
