Hoya deykeae


While the American botanist Ted Green named the epiphytic growing Hoya deykeae Green 2000 he made a mistake with the Latin grammar and named the tropical wax flower Hoya deykei, this has been corrected by him later on. Most likely Hoya deykeae, with its beautiful heart-shaped leaves, is native to the Philippines. The small flower clusters get a size of just about 2 cm in diameter, but the flowers are highly fragrant and exhaling a pleasant musk-like scent. Hoya deykea is considered as an easy to grow plant and is suitable to be cultivated indoors as well.
