The Ultimate Hoya Growing Guide: Tips and Care Information


Photographs are representative of the species and not always of the specific plant shipped. Normal variations in size, pruning and leaf structure may occur.


Sun: Indirect

Place them away from direct sunlight, but they can tolerate early morning or late evening sun. Optimal conditions involve filtered sunlight through sheer curtains, as most homes naturally provide indirect sunlight. The ideal location ensures they receive bright, indirect light without direct sun exposure for the majority of the day.

Light: Medium - Low

They will thrive in medium to bright light, but also can tolerate low light. A good medium-light place in your home would be in the middle of a room that has a regular size window. They can be placed almost anywhere in the room but remember, plants will grow based on how much light they receive.

Water: When fully dry

Hoya Carnosa prefers the soil to be relatively dry before the next watering, typically occurring every 2 weeks in an average home environment. However, this timeframe may vary depending on factors like the season, environmental conditions, and lighting levels. It's generally safer to underwater than overwater, so wait for signs such as droopy, floppy, or soft leaves before watering. Expect to water more frequently in brighter light and less often in lower light conditions.

Humidity: Any

Hoya Carnosa enjoys any humidity levels. Mist the leaves occasionally or place the plant on a pebble tray filled with water to increase humidity.

Pet Friendly: Yes

You can feel comfortable having this plant around your home in the potential case where your pet feels like nibbling on it. However, we typically recommend keeping your pets from eating any of your houseplants.

Pro Tip

To encourage flowering, provide a cooler period of around 50-60°F (10-15°C) in the fall. This can stimulate flower bud formation, leading to a beautiful display of blooms.

Your Complete Guide to Pot Sizes: What Size Should You Choose?

When selecting a pot for your plant, it's important to find the right size. But with all the different options out there, how do you know which one is best? We're here to help!

MyGreenscape's pot sizes chart is a great resource for finding your perfect fit. Our easy-to-read chart takes out all the guesswork and helps you quickly choose the right size for your plant.

Smaller pots are best for seedlings or small plants just starting out. These tend to be shallow but wide, allowing enough room for the roots of the young plant but not too much where they get overcrowded. Medium-sized pots are ideal when your plant has grown from its infancy and is ready for more space. These are deeper and wider than small pots, so that it can accommodate larger root systems - making sure your plant gets enough nourishment while still giving it breathing room. Large pots are top choice if you have an established plant in need of lots of space - think trees and large shrubs! The spacious depth and width allow plenty of room for deep root systems without struggling for air or light.

No matter what size you choose, MyGreenscape has got you covered, with our pot sizes chart guaranteeing you find the perfect fit every time!
