A fairly unknown species and still it's not really rare. The species is not very eye catching wich could be one of the reasons it's not so attractive to collect.

As the name Hoya bhutanica indicates it originates from Bhutan. A small country between India and China. As the country is situated at a rather high altitude it's easy to presume the species would prefer a cool position. However, as the climate in Bhutan is quite variable it's not really sure. I have been trying to find out wher Hoya bhutanica was collected but so far I have been unsuccessfull.

I treat Hoya bhutanica as a intermediate species and I try not to let it run completely dry. I have for forgotten it occasionally and so far it hasn't done any harm.
