I wouldn't call it a small leaved species, but it is close. The leaves are more on the small side than medium.
In general appearance Hoya flavida looks a bit like Hoya chlorantha. Thin leaves and slender branches and growth. A climber that does best on trellises.
Hoya flavida should be grown light but not in sunlight. The leaves can easily get a very attractive, red, tan. Water regularly. Don't let it run dry.
First flowering after two years.
Should not be exposed to sunlight.. A shaded window facing west or east is good.
Tolerates some drought but should not be allowed to run completely dry.
Intermediate species. Tolerates short exposure to temperatures no less than 10°C. Best grown in a regular room temperature of 20-25°C.
Flower size: 12 mm
Leaf size: 4cm × 10cm
