What is the Best Soil for Hoya pubicalyx Splash Plants?
The best soil for Hoya pubicalyx Splash Plants is a well-balanced mix of peat moss, perlite, and vermiculite that dries some between watering but takes a long time to compact. Typically, any reputable potting mix will work well and includes those ingredients. Adding a granular, slow-release fertilizer while planting is a good way to help the plant thrive in the transplanting transition. However, if the soil you’ve chosen already has fertilizer incorporated, there will be no need to add additional fertilizer.
When Should I Water my Hoya pubicalyx Splash Plant?
This Hoya should receive water relatively infrequently, as the plants like to dry out some between watering. The easiest way to tell if a plant needs water is by the weight of the container. If the container is heavy and the foliage is upright, chances are good the plant doesn’t need water, whereas a light pot and limp foliage mean the plant needs some water. Sometimes, water pours out of the container without being retained by the soil. If you’re unsure, it is always better to let the plant go dry instead of drenching it with water. Moisture meters are another easy way to tell if plants need to be watered and usually come with a guide to indicate what number or level of moisture plants require.
What type of Fertilizer do Hoya pubicalyx Splash Plants Need?
Indoor houseplant fertilizers fall into two groups: water-soluble (liquid quick release} and granular, slow-release fertilizers. On the other hand, Osmocote Indoor/Outdoor is an option as a granular slow-release fertilizer that can be applied while potting and planting. Any fertilizer offers nutrients that help plants transition to a new environment.
How Much Sunlight Does my Hoya Plant Need?
This Hoya thrives best in medium to bright but indirect sunlight. They grow well when placed on a sunny window sill. You can also place this houseplant in artificial lighting, and it will grow perfectly. Avoid keeping the plant in direct sunlight during the brightest times of the day; it will scorch the plant's foliage and flowers. We recommend giving your plant at least 6 hours of bright, indirect light a day.
