Hoya 'Sp. Sabah' refers to a Hoya species or cultivar that is identified with Sabah, a state in Malaysia known for its rich biodiversity, including a vast array of Hoya species. Being a part of the "Sp." designation suggests that this particular Hoya might not yet be fully scientifically described or it is known by its collection location rather than a specific species name. Hoyas from Sabah are often treasured for their unique characteristics and beauty, contributing to the allure and diversity of Hoya collections worldwide.


While specific details about Hoya 'Sp. Sabah' can vary depending on the exact plant in question, Hoyas from the Sabah region typically showcase features that are highly sought after by collectors. These can include vibrant foliage, often with notable veining or variegation, and the spectacular blooms that Hoyas are known for. Hoya flowers are generally star-shaped, come in clusters (umbels), and can vary in color from white and yellow to pink and red, often exuding a sweet fragrance.

Care Guide

Lighting: Bright, indirect light is ideal. Some species can tolerate direct morning sunlight, but protection from harsh afternoon sun is necessary to prevent leaf burn. East or west-facing windows are usually suitable.

Watering: Water when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch, ensuring good drainage to avoid waterlogging the roots. Overwatering can lead to root rot, a common issue in Hoyas. Water less frequently in winter when the plant's growth slows down.

Humidity: High humidity levels, typical of their native tropical habitat, are preferred. Aim for humidity levels above 60%. Misting, using a humidifier, or placing the pot on a pebble tray with water are effective ways to increase humidity.

Temperature: Warm temperatures between 18°C to 29°C (65°F to 85°F) are optimal. Avoid exposure to temperatures below 15°C (59°F), as Hoyas are sensitive to cold.

Soil: A well-draining, airy potting mix is essential. An orchid mix or a blend containing perlite, bark, and coco coir can provide the drainage and aeration Hoyas prefer.

Feeding: Apply a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer diluted to half strength every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce feeding in the autumn and withhold fertiliser during the winter.

Repotting: Hoyas like to be slightly root-bound, so repotting every 2-3 years or when the plant has outgrown its pot is sufficient. Spring is the best time for repotting, using a pot that is only slightly larger.

Pest and Disease Management: Inspect regularly for pests such as mealybugs, aphids, and spider mites. Treat infestations early with insecticidal soap or neem oil. Good practices like ensuring proper drainage and avoiding over-watering will help prevent root rot and fungal diseases.

Due to the general nature of this care guide, it's advisable to seek specific information related to the particular Hoya 'Sp. Sabah' you have, as care requirements can vary among different Hoya species and cultivars. Nonetheless, providing a warm, humid environment with bright, indirect light and careful watering will create conditions that allow most Hoyas to thrive.
