斷葉毬蘭為夾竹桃科毬蘭屬,原產於印度及東喜馬拉雅山地區,葉形與其他毬蘭品種大不相同,是扁窄的細長狀。花朵是經典的星形外觀,白色花冠襯托著深紅色副花冠,整體看起來如煙火綻放中的閃爍火花,走近還能聞到淡淡杏仁甜香。有攀爬性的毬蘭適合用吊盆懸掛或使用較高的盆器種植,便能欣賞其垂曳的枝葉與花朵。
A Hoya retusa is native to India and the eastern Himalayas. This special vine plant has leaves that are like sticks, really thin with a slightly wider, flat tip. It has classic star-shaped flower, with the white petals bringing out the red in the middle. It also has a light fragrance when you walk by the plants. Use hanging planters or place it at a higher place allows it to grow in little clumps down long stems that make them look gorgeous and full!
斷葉毬蘭是相對容易種植的品種,一般室內溫度種植加上明亮散射光,不要有大幅變動的溫差,並給予通風的環境,他們就能生長良好。種植介質不拘,只要排水、透氣性佳,澆水時機等介質乾再澆透。經常給毬蘭噴水對新梢生長有很大幫助;冬季時生長緩慢、耗水較少,盆土可以稍乾燥,澆水間隔拉長,切忌過度澆水。適合生長環境18℃-28℃,花期在秋季,花梗不剪翌年同個位置會重複開花。
Growing Hoya retusa, you’ll find that the average home temperature will suit it fine. They are quite a hardy plant, they just don’t like huge temperature fluctuations. It does best in filtered light or dappled sun. Provided with warm, humid, ventilated growing conditions, they can grow very well and bloom prolifically. It is best to grow them in well-draining and airy planting medium. You can spray around the plant from time to time. Make sure to let the substrate dry down enough between waterings to prevent root rot. In addition, fertilizing biweekly and treat your Hoya with insecticide also help keep your plants healthy and insect-free.
