This is one of our all time favorite Hoyas, we highly recommend these Hoyas for beginners & they should have a place in every collectors display. They are a fast growing vine and are great on trellises. I'm sure you can guess where they are native to because of their latin name "australis" as in Australia. We found these are native to more tropical areas vs. more arid climates.
Australis usually tend do require a bit more water than your average Hoya. We would recommend watering around every 10-12 days as the soil dries out and the foliage starts to feel limp. These will not want to be in scorching direct sun like some Hoyas, but a nice bright light will cause them to blush with darker colors! When repotting, be sure to use a semi-coarse soil medium that will drain well.All of our plants are ethically sourced from certified U.S. nurseries. We strongly condemn the poaching of plants or wild collection.
