Hoya manipurensis is part of the Apocynaceae family and its native range is E. Nepal to China (SW. Yunnan) where it grows as a subshrub or shrub; it has also been described as a creeper with the suggestion that its roots would grow into cracks on trees. Leaves are opposite, fleshy and range from from obtriangular to obcordate to obovate.

Between 5-7 flowers develop at the internodes and resemble the flowers of Dischidia more than Hoya; the peduncle is very short and the pedicel is almost non-existent. Corolla is pubescent and has a small opening, nectar is deep orange and is produced plentifully. 

Genus name is new Latin, named after Thomas Hoy ( c. 1750– c. 1821), English gardener. Specific epithet is in reference to where the plant was first collected, Manipur, India. This plant was previously classified as Dischidia and Micholitzia.

Light: Bright indirect light, meaning the plant sees the sun for 0-4 hours per day - this could be through trees or a translucent curtain, it’s important for the plant to see the sky in order to thrive. This plant will sunstress when exposed to direct light.

Water: Allow the potting mix to dry out at least halfway through before watering. 

Potting mix: Our potting mix would be ideal with some added coco chips.

Fertilising: Feed every couple of waterings with a well balanced fertiliser; you can further dilute fertiliser than the recommended amount but never add more. 

Temperature: 21-35˚C.

Humidity: Hoya manipurensis love higher humidity so 60% and above with good air circulation. 

Hoya aren’t considered toxic, however, they may make your pet or child vomit if ingested, keep out of reach just to be safe.
