Hoyas are absolutely stunning indoor plants. They are instant charmers and have made their way back on high popularity shelf. These unique plants are native to southern India and named after Thomas Hoym, the Duke of Northumberland’s, gardener and the grower that brought attention to the Hoya. With a little attention and knowledge on how to care for Hoya, these plants can be passed down from generation to generation. The flowers may be a rarity in home situations but, if you get lucky, the delicate flowers present a perfect display that almost looks too good to be real. Hoya is a terrific plant for a beginner gardener to learn indoor plant care.
- Hoya plants should be kept out of the high light of the day, as this may burn the leaves. They need bright but indirect light.
- Allow the top half of the soil to dry out between waterings, then water deeply and allow to drain thoroughly. Do not over-water as too much water will kill the plant. Water sparingly in winter. Using a Sustee Moisture Meter stick helps to figure out how much moisture is in the soil so you don’t under or overwater.
- Misting is also a good idea unless the plant is kept in the bathroom where shower steam will keep the air humid. Mist it if situated near drying furnaces or other heat sources several times a week to increase humidity.
- Happy in room temperatures from 18-24 °C. Avoid draughts and extreme temperatures.
- Hoya isn't actively growing in winter but does need light and water. Provide the plant with bright indirect light in a cool area of the home free of drafts.
