Hoya are my favorite! They are slow growing, but they are unique due to their thick and wax like foliage. When they grow enough, they bloom these star-shaped flowers that have a strong, sweet aroma.
VARIETIES OF HOYAS:
Easy Care Facts:
Use a general-purpose liquid houseplant fertilizer at half strength once every month during the spring and summer. There is no need to feed your plant in the winter when growth naturally slows. Before applying any form of fertilizer make sure the soil is damp. Never apply fertilizer to dry soil, this can cause fertilizer burn.
Your Hoya Plant will do just fine in average household humidity.
temperature for your Hoya is between 60-85 degrees.
Water your Hoya when the pot becomes completely dry and even let the leaves wrinkle up a bit. Water thoroughly until water flows from the drainage hole on the bottom of the pot. Discard any excess water in the saucer. If your Hoya begins to drop its leaves, most likely it is being watered too much. Hoyas require less water in the winter months.
Your Hoya is non-toxic to humans and pets.
When Hoya plants mature, they will produce clusters of star-shaped flowers. Do not remove the spent flower stems after your Hoya blooms–it will produce flowers on those stems again the next time it blooms. Also, do not move the Hoya after it begins to develop new flower buds. Moving the Hoya could disturb it and cause it to drop the buds before they open.
