Requirements:

Hoya is an easy and graceful plant to grow indoors. Accustomed to harsh conditions in nature, it does not require excessive care and attention in the apartment. However, it is worth remembering about its mountain origin and the need for high air humidity. Prefers a warm position with lots of diffused light. It tolerates drought quite well, but the substrate should not be completely dry. However, it is very sensitive to water stagnation and overflow, so the pot should have a lot of drainage holes, and the substrate must be permeable and well drained. A suitable substrate is a universal substrate. It grows best in tight containers, alongside supports or in a hanging form. In the period from spring to late summer, we provide fertilizer for flowering plants.

The plant is sold in a pot with a diameter of 12 cm. Plant height measured with the pot is approx. 30-40 cm.
