Growing Hoya

Latin Name Pronunciation: hoy'-uh

LIGHT: Hoya is a carefree, vining houseplant that prefers bright, indirect light and temperatures of 60° F and above.

WATERING: Water when the top 1" of the potting mix is dry to the touch. Hoyas can tolerate somewhat dryer conditions, so water thoroughly and don’t water again until it is dry.    

FERTILIZER: When plants are in active growth from spring through summer, use a balanced (20-20-20) houseplant fertilizer monthly, diluted to half strength.
