Hoya gracilis is a trailing Hoya loved for its elegant white flower clusters and dainty oval leaves. The leaves have a succulent texture and they grow in pairs along the vine. They are a light green colour on top and a bit lighter green on the underside. The flowers are very fragrant, with a sweet, jasmine-like scent.
Hoya gracilis is native to tropical rainforests in Papua New Guinea, Malaysia, Indonesia, and other parts of Southeast Asia. It grows as an epiphyte (when one plant grows on another without harming it) in humid forest conditions.
