Tips for Growing Hoya Plants


Hoya can be grown successfully in low, medium, or bright light. It tolerates low to medium light but won't typically bloom in these conditions. Usually, with flowering houseplants, the more sunlight the plant gets, the more flowers it will produce.


Hoya plants prefer well-drained soil. We have had our best result with Espoma Organic Cactus soil. Cactus soil has a large particle size and tends to stay a little on the dry side. Being a succulent plant, hoya's have the ability to store moisture in their large fleshy leaves.


Hoyas are light feeders; however, during the growing season, it is ok to feed the hoya a little bit more as this will promote flower production. The easy method is to top-dress the plant with Osmocote plus indoor outdoor fertilizer or use a general-purpose water-soluble fertilizer such as Jack's Classic All-Purpose fertilizer.


Water hoya plants only when the potting mix dries out. Don't worry if you forget to water it once or twice. Its thick leaves and stems help the plant store water for occurrences just like that. Do take care not to overwater hoyas.

Being succulent plants, they would rather be too dry than too wet. Hoyas can suffer from root rot if the potting mix stays wet for extended periods, well-drained soil will help to avoid this.
