So they need that bright, dappled light. … Outdoors, diffused light is best and too much direct sun can cause the leaves to fade and yellow. Keeping the light high not only allows the Hoya plant to grow better, it also helps keep the soil from staying too damp.
Likewise, do Hoyas like sun or shade?
Hoyas grow in filtered light by choice, and though they will grow well in shade, they won’t flower unless given enough light. Morning sun or dappled light is best as hot summer sun can burn them.
Besides, do Hoyas like to be misted?
To increase high humidity, and cleaning the leaves, misting is fine. Do not mist the your Hoya is budding or in flower. In spring Hoyas react favorably to feeding producing vigorous growth.
Do Hoyas like small pots?
They actually like being pot bound & you’ll get a better bloom if you leave them be for a few years. I hadn’t repotted mine for 3 years & did it because the soil was way down in the pot. And, I didn’t jump up too big in pot size – you can see the difference in the video. … In terms of soil, Hoyas like a nice & rich mix.
For some types of hoya, blooming time depends on the maturity of the plant. Some varieties may bloom readily the first year, while others won’t produce blooms until they reach two or three years of age, and sometimes more. Some types of hoya bloom year-round, while other varieties are seasonal bloomers.
Maybe because hoyas are so adaptable to the busy lifestyle since they only require partial sunlight and little attention to watering. Hoyas have magnificent flowers and waxy leaves and most are vining plants that climb easily on a trellis for support.
Do Hoyas Like Coffee Grounds? Hoya plants exist in varieties, some of which love acidic environments while others do not. The hoya varieties that love acidic environments will appreciate a few coffee grounds.
Finally, once you have a basic understanding of how most hoyas like to be cared for, then you’ll discover that they are relatively non-fussy houseplants—growing vigorously and flowering consistently year over year.
Some bloom in the first year & others take a few years to establish before they bloom. My Hoya carnosa “variegata” took almost 3 years to bloom by the way, so be patient.
Another plant with unique variegation, a Hoya carnosa compacta ‘Hindu Rope’ became the most expensive houseplant ever sold on Trade Me in June 2020. The site’s member sold it for $6500. This established plant had a cream/yellow variegation on the inside of the leaf.
I love Hoyas in general, but Hoya obovata is definitely in my top favorites! It is a very easy going plant with thick, leathery, succulent oval leaves which are often speckled with white or pink markings. And after the plant is at least 2-3 years or so, you will be rewarded with beautiful clusters of pink flowers.
All misting does is raise the humidity level around the plant until the water has evaporated, which isn’t very long. So, it really isn’t very useful, and isn’t something that Hoyas really need. Just remember that the thicker the leaves, the less frequently a Hoya needs to be watered.
Like most plants, hoyas appreciate fertilization during the growing season. … Many people, including myself, will also use a foliar fertilizer like Cute Farms Orchid Plant Food Fertilizer Mist. This is a fertilizer that you spray on your plant and it absorbs through its leaves.
Humidity. Although Hoyas can handle most household humidity levels, they will grow more rapidly when the humidity is higher than 60 percent. Do what you can to increase the humidity for these tropical, hanging, indoor plants.
