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

Thriving in medium to bright light, Hoya Pubicalyx also exhibits tolerance for low-light conditions. Optimal placement includes the middle of a room with a standard-sized window, allowing flexibility in positioning within the space. Keep in mind that the growth of these plants is influenced by the amount of light they receive, offering versatility in their adaptable nature. 🌞🌿

Water: When fully dry

They prefer the soil to thoroughly dry out before the next watering, typically around 4 weeks in a standard home setting. The duration may vary based on seasonal changes, your specific environment, and lighting conditions. However, it's generally safer to underwater than to overwater, so water when you observe signs of dryness.

Humidity: Any

They can live in any average home humidity condition and are fairly hardy.

Pet Friendly: Yes

You can confidently incorporate this plant into your home, even in scenarios where your pet might be tempted to nibble on it. Nevertheless, as a general precaution, we advise against allowing pets to consume any houseplants.

Pro Tip

For optimal growth, let the soil dry slightly between waterings and place your Hoya Pubicalyx in a hanging basket to showcase its elegant cascading vines.

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!

To prevent both under-watering and overwatering, use a well-draining potting mix and allow excess water to escape. Always check the soil moisture before adding more water to keep your plants thriving.
