Hoya rundumensis 'Splash' is a captivating variety within the Hoya genus, cherished for its ornamental foliage and enchanting blooms. This specific cultivar is noted for the "splash" pattern on its leaves, which adds an extra layer of interest and beauty to the already appealing characteristics of the Hoya rundumensis. While Hoya rundumensis is native to regions in Southeast Asia, the 'Splash' variety, with its variegated leaves, is especially sought after by plant enthusiasts and collectors for its aesthetic appeal and rarity.

Description

The 'Splash' descriptor in Hoya rundumensis 'Splash' refers to the variegated splashes or speckles of silver or white that appear on the plant's leaves, giving them a sparkling appearance. These patterns can vary significantly from leaf to leaf, making each one unique. The leaves themselves are medium-sized, ovate to elongated, and have a thick, succulent-like texture that is characteristic of many Hoyas. This variety, like its parent species, produces clusters of small, star-shaped flowers that are typically pink or white, with a central corona that can be contrasting in color. The flowers are not only visually appealing but also emit a sweet fragrance, especially in the evening.

Care Guide

Lighting: Bright, indirect light is ideal for Hoya rundumensis 'Splash'. It can tolerate some direct morning or late afternoon sun, but prolonged exposure to intense direct sunlight may damage the leaves. A position near an east or west-facing window would be suitable.

Watering: Allow the topsoil to dry out slightly between waterings. Overwatering can lead to root rot, so ensure the pot has good drainage. Water less frequently in winter, allowing the plant to enter a period of dormancy.

Humidity: Prefers high humidity, typical of its tropical origins. Humidity levels of 60% or higher are ideal. Achieve this through misting, using a humidifier, or placing the pot on a pebble tray filled with water.

Temperature: Thrives in warm conditions, with temperatures ranging from 18°C to 29°C (65°F to 85°F). Protect it from cold drafts and sudden temperature fluctuations.

Soil: Use a well-draining, airy potting mix. An orchid mix or a homemade mixture containing perlite, pine bark, and coco coir works well, providing the necessary drainage and aeration.

Feeding: Fertilize with a balanced, liquid fertilizer diluted to half strength every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Do not fertilize during the winter months.

Repotting: This plant prefers to be slightly root-bound, so repotting every 2-3 years or when it has clearly outgrown its pot is sufficient. Spring is the best time for repotting, using a container only slightly larger than the previous one.

Pest and Disease Management: Keep an eye out for pests such as mealybugs, aphids, and spider mites. Treat any infestations early with insecticidal soap or neem oil. Avoid overwatering and ensure good air circulation to prevent fungal diseases.

Hoya rundumensis 'Splash' is a stunning addition to any indoor plant collection, offering both visual beauty and an engaging gardening experience. By meeting its care requirements—particularly in terms of light, watering, and humidity—this Hoya cultivar will flourish, bringing its unique sparkle and charm to your home or greenhouse.
