This can be a little bit of a temperamental Hoya to grow. It really requires good humidity and a well draining mix. Using an Orchid mix with some Hydroton and giving it high humidity with bright light gets the best results. It is worth it, though, if you can give it the conditions it likes. The fragrance is very noticeable in the evenings and very much like a mild night-blooming Jasmine.
