Care tips for Hoyas


During the spring and summer, water your hoya plant approximately once every 14 days. Before watering, ensure that the soil has dried out adequately. Allow the soil to dry out again before the next watering. If your Hoya plant starts dropping leaves, it's likely getting too much water. During the winter months, reduce the frequency of watering as Hoyas require less water during this time.


Hoya plants flourish in bright, indirect light. They can a few hours of morning or evening sunlight, but excessive sun exposure can lead to leaf scorching or discoloration.


Most Hoyas will thrive in a standard potting mix as long as it's well-draining and offers good air circulation. However, a mix that's too dense or retains too much moisture can lead to rotting, so it's crucial to maintain a balanced potting mix. Adding perlite can enhance drainage. Make sure repot them every three years to refresh the soil and provide ample room for root growth.

Temperature & Humidity

For your Hoya plant, aim to maintain an ideal room temperature ranging from 60 to 85 degrees Fahrenheit. If the temperature drops below 55 degrees, growth may halt. Prevent exposure to drafts and direct airflow from heating and cooling vents to ensure optimal conditions for your Hoya's growth and well-being.

Hoya plants thrive in high humidity environments, ideally with humidity levels reaching at least 60%. While they can tolerate lower humidity levels, you may observe stunted growth or fewer flowers in such conditions.


For optimal growth, apply a general-purpose liquid houseplant fertilizer at half strength once a month during the spring and summer months. Refrain from fertilizing during the winter when growth naturally slows down. Always ensure the soil is damp before applying any fertilizer, as fertilizing dry soil can harm the plant.


Hoya Plants are non-poisonous to humans and pets.
