Just bought this Hoya Carnosa

deurgesFebruary 24, 2013

I bought this Hoya from a place which had it in almost full sun most of the time. All of the Hoya plants he had looked the same, and I assumed that what it has is just sun damage. Am I correct, or does the plant have any other problem?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

I would think it would recover nicely if given a shadier position. A lot of people grow them in almost full sun to get more flowers, but I like the look of a lush green plant, so I'd be inclined to give it less harsh conditions so it will be a prettier plant.
