Hoya Curtisii (wax flower)
Hoya engleriana is a very small leafed Hoya from Southeast Asia.
Hoya curtisii has small round leaves that come to a point, with flecks of silver variegation and it grows as a creeping epiphyte.
It produces small clusters of flowers with a waxy white flower and pink centre. The flowers are very fragrant, with a citrusy or melon-like scent.
Most Hoyas (such as the Engleriana) prefer bright light, moderate to high humidity, and warm temperatures.
