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.
