A truly different kind of Hoya that grows like glued on to tree stems.

Difficult to cultivate as it needs lots of humidity and can never run dry. A terrarium or a very large glass jar is needed. If the latter is the choise it will soon run out of space so if you intend to grow it, give it room to mature. A shy bloomer.
