Hoya acuta Pink
The Hoya acuta Pink is a beautiful little Hoya from Indonesia, Thailand and Malaysia. It has medium sized oval leaves that terminate in a point, hence the species name acuta. The leaves have a prominent mid-rib, some pink spotting and sometimes, in the right light, blotches of bronze. This is a reasonably fast growing Hoya that is well suited to life indoors.
This beauty has been known to bloom repeatedly, producing tight umbels (rounded flower cluster) of 15-40 whitish-pink, fragrant flowers.
As a general rule, let the top 1-2cm of soil in the pot dry out before watering again in the growing season (Spring and Summer). In the colder months let them dry out much more before watering again. In a temperate climate Hoyas hate cold water sitting of the leaves and damp soggy soil through winter.
Position and Lighting
Like most Hoyas they can handle shade but if you want them to flower, and believe me, you want them to flower, they need bright light for a good portion of the day. Somewhere close to (but not too close) to a large north facing window is great for these lovely ladies.
These plants currently have 1-3 stems approximately 25cm long. They will remain happy in the pot they are shipped in for a few years before they require repotting.
What to do when it arrives
These plants are part of our small plant range as such they will be shipped in a 100mm diameter plastic nursery pot that fits in any of our small ceramics range.
Hoyas are one of the toughest plants getting around the greenhouse so they are really easy to care for! Download the care guide so you know how to treat them special.

Caring for your Hoya acuta Pink
Our special eco packaging
No Plant Stress
Our plant packaging is designed by people know how to keep plants fresh and healthy in transit. Your plants will enjoy a comfortable trip directly from our greenhouse to your door in just a few of days. Your plant will not have to deal with the stress of being bare rooted for transport (how most plants are sent) and you won’t have to deal with the mess and fuss of potting up your new plant when you receive it.
The plastic pot will be wrapped in a calico bag to keep the soil in place, it will then be tied into a specially designed cardboard insert which will keep it stable and upright throughout its journey. The insert will be glued in place on top of your cardboard wrapped ceramic pot to hold it down and your plant up!
Your plant will come in its plastic pot which we make sure fits perfectly in whichever ceramic pot you choose. Our packaging has been designed to allow us to send your beautiful ceramic pot along with your plant, fully potted, yep in soil, together in the same box.
The thing that we’re most proud of is that our packaging is fully recyclable and re-useable so you don’t have to feel bad about generating more packaging waste. In fact you should feel awesome because ordering from us, online, will generate way less emissions than if you were to drive to the nursery to buy a plant. The only plastic you get will be the plastic pot that your plant comes in and these can be re-used or recycled.
