Caring for your new leafy green friends
Please don’t put me on or close to a radiator, the heat will dry me out.
Take me out of any ceramic pots when watering to stop my roots rotting.
I need light to survive. Please give me light!
I don’t like draughts! Keep me away from any cold spots in the house.

Secrets to success
Temperature: Average to warm is fine, 18-30°C.
Light: Bright indirect light is best.
Watering: Allow to dry out between waterings, we recommend potting into a terracotta pot to absorb excess water.
Air humidity: Average humidity is fine but Hoya will 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 during spring and summer, dilute synthetic fertiliser to a quarter the recommended amount so you are able to feed each time you're watering (as you don't water very often). A higher nitrogen fertiliser encourages foliar growth but if you notice peduncles and the plant is about to flower it's a good idea to switch to one with a higher phosphorous content.
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.
