The Dirt

Native to several countries such as China, India, Philippines, and on. Hoya was named by Robert Brown who was a botanist. Brown named this plant after a fellow botanist friend, Thomas Hoy. How kind! A Hoya, in the wild, grow on trees and can extend out with their vines up to 20ft+ long. Don’t worry though, at home, they grow slowly. Good drainage is helpful for a Hoya! These plants like being in the same pot for a long time so no need to report constantly. When it is outgrowing its pot, try to repot in the warmer months. 

Part Sun

This plant likes most rooms with windows facing west or east. You could place it in a spot away from a very sunny window – as light intensity goes down quick as you move away from the light source.


Water every three weeks. Let soil dry up before watering. Feel the soil, top layer should be dry, if not dry, wait two days. If the soil still is wet you risk giving the plant too much water, you don’t want it to rot.

Pet Friendly

Yay! This plant is not toxic to our furry friends (regardless, you don’t want them to chew on this beauty).

It might take years for your Hoya to bloom, be patient, and try giving it more light

Once your Hoya is in bloom do not move or rotate it
