4" Hoya Tricolor
Hoya plants are some of the easiest indoor houseplants to care for. They are slow-growing vining plants native to tropical and subtropical Asia. They are also known as wax plants due to their thick and shiny foliage. As Hoyas mature, they produce clusters of sweet-smeling star-shaped flowers.
Ligth: Hoya will thive in medium to bright indirect light. It can tolerate lower light but will likely produce flowers if placed in brighter light. The more light it receives, the more vibrant the foliage and the more flowers it will produce.
Water: Hoya when the pot becomes completely dry and even let the leaves wrinkle up a bit, Water thoroughly until water flows from the drainage hole on the bottom of the pot. Discard any excess water in the saucer. If Hoya begins to drop its leaves, most likely it is being watered too much. Hoyas require less water in the winter months.
Additional care: When hoya plants mature, they will produce clusters of star-shaped flowers. Do not remove the spent flower stem after your Hoya blooms-it will produce flowers on those stem again the next time it blooms. Also, do not move the Hoya after it begins to develop new flower buds. Moving the Hoya could disturb it and cause it to drop the buds the before they open.
Toxicity: Hoya plants are non-poisonous to humans and pets.
