The leaves are a deep green color and have prominent veins running through them, giving them a very textured and interesting appearance. As for the flowers, they are small and star-shaped, with a creamy white color and a sweet, fragrant scent.

It is prized for its unique appearance and lovely fragrance, and it makes a great addition to any indoor garden or plant collection.
When it comes to caring for your Hoya polyneura, it's important to keep in mind that this plant prefers bright, indirect light and moderate watering.
