Description

Hoya carnosa  is a vining succulent that roots along it long, branching stems. In the wild it climbs trees and scrambles over rocks, growing continuously and reaching lengths of 20 feet(6 m) or more. The leaves are smooth, thick and fleshy, up to 7.5 cm long, and paired on opposite sides along the stems. Twenty or more star shaped flowers up to 1.5 cm across, typically light pink (but may vary from near-white to dark pink), are borne in pendulous convex clusters, 5 or 8 cm across. When blooming, the fragrance is very heady and fills the house with a sweet, lovely fragrance. 

Environment

Easy to grow & don't require much attention. Hoya do best in filtered light or with lots of artificial light in indoors.

Hoya plants don't ask for much, beyond the well-draining soil and the warm humid conditions (similar to bromeliads and orchids)

They are epyphite, can be grown in orchid medium or light potting mix with lots of bark conditioner. Hoya like the security of a snug pot, and plants that are a bit root bound will flower more prolifically than those that are swimming around in a giant pot.

This plant is attractive to bees, butterflies and/or birds .

Landscape Use

It makes a nice hanging basket, but also does really well as a mounted plant

Hoyas are one of the easiest vines to take care of. Their needs are little and in the case of Hoya - less is more!

Hoyas like medium to bright indirect light. It detests direct sunlight and dark corners!

Hoya plants are very sensitive to over watering. To avoid this always keep a Hoya in a pot with a drainage hole. Use well drained soil or coco peat and perlite mix to make sure the excess water gets drained out. Water the Hoya only when the soil is completely dry. If it is moist you can let it be for a couple of days before checking on it again. It is better to under water than over water your Hoya plant!

Don't cut the long tendrils of your Hoya as the leaves and flowers develop from these!
