Hoya ‘Sunrise’ requires a site with plenty of light or a semi-shaded spot. It grows very well at room temperature of 15 ° C to 25 ° C and high air humidity. He likes sprinkling. Hoya does not tolerate excess and stagnant water, so the pot should have a lot of drainage holes, and the substrate must be permeable and well drained. In summer, water is watered abundantly and regularly, but the substrate must dry out between waterings. In winter, it is watered sparingly to prevent the leaves from sagging. During the growing season, the plant is fed once a week with fertilizer for flowering plants or orchids, using half the recommended dose. It should not be moved, especially before and during flowering, as it may cause flowers and buds to fall.
The plant is sold in a pot with a diameter of 12 cm. Plant height measured with the pot is approx. 25-30 cm.
