Hoya arnottiana originates from higher altitudes of the Himalaya region. The species is fairly easily cultivated climber with large, emerald green leaves.

That the natural habitat of Hoya arnottiana is in Himalaya indicates that it prefers a cool position. It doesn't mind light though as long as it doesn't generate too much heat. I grow mine in a window facing east in a self watering pot so it gets an even amount of water.

Hoya arnottiana blooms with rather dense umbels with cream colored flowers. The flowers reflex in time and last a few days. It has a rather strange scent that is difficult to describe.
