sp. aff. DS-70transparentPublished as Hoya tsangii by C.M Burton in The Hoyan 9(4): Vol. 3, 1988. Often sold as Hoya bilobata. I bought it in 1994 as Hoya angustifolia.

Hoya sp. aff. DS-70 is easily cultivated and flowers freely from a young age. Best growm in a hanging basket as it does not twine.

Leaves are dark green, often with a dark brown or red margin if grown light. The entire plant is pubescent, although the hair on the stems is not as obvious as on the leaves who have a velvet like feel to them.

Should be kept evenly moist but does survive to run dry every now and then. In bright light the leaves get a beautiful red color and a dark margin, but the species does well and flowers in shade or semi shade as well.
