Hoya chewiorum is a native of Borneo (exclusively Sabah) and has only ever been discovered in hill forest in the Crocker Range. It bears the names of two brothers, Philip and Dr. Steven Bosuang (formerly Chew), who worked to create the Kipandi Park in the Crocker Range of Sabah, which involved the breeding of a group of indigenous Hoyas. (Extracted directly from Anthony Lamb and Michele Rodda’s book A Guide to Hoyas of Borneo). Anthony Lamb (A. Lamb) published Hoya chewiorum in Sandakania Vol 19. (April 2014).
Growing Method for Hoya Chewiorum
I can only describe my growing method for Hoya chewiorum, which hasn’t exactly been successful for me. The plant is being grown in a highly chunky mixture, the majority of which is made up of quite huge bark.
The plant only needs care every ten days or so and requires very little water because it only has four or five leaves. I have erected a RO system in the hopes that it may eventually aid in this plant’s improvement and sturdiness. I hope to receive some new growth from the plant if I’m successful in turning it around. However, I am grateful that I was able to see the beautiful flowers for myself, and I urge everyone to do the same if you can find the plant to give a try.
