Secrets to success

 

Temperature: 21-28˚C

 

Light: Bright indirect light but this Hoya can handle a little direct light.

 

Watering: Allow to dry out between waterings, we recommend potting into a terracotta pot to absorb excess water.

 

Air humidity: Prefers higher humidity but tolerates average humidity. Hoya grow faster in a more humid environment. To increase humidity group plants together, use a humidifier or place your plant on a watered pebble tray.

 

Fertilising: Feed every 2-3 waterings during the growing season.

 

Potting mix: A light well draining mix with added orchid bark for aeration; Hoya are epiphytes.

 

This plant isn't known to be toxic but would be best kept out of reach of pets and children, just in case.
