INDOOR / OUTDOOR PLANT - Hoya Pubicalyx 'Pink Silver' in 17cm basket
If we had one dollar for every time a customer has reminisced in-store about their Nan's, Mum's, Uncles etc Hoya they remember growing up then we would be some rich Arizona babes! Hoya's are back in a BIG way!
Hoya's belong to the Apocynaceae plant family. There are close to 300 species and they each have phenomenally unique foliage and dazzling flowers when in bloom. Although they produce roots, these are primarily used to secure themselves and in the natural world they can often be seen clinging to tree branches and rocky cliff faces.
Hoya's are a classic because they live forever, grow to be enormous, and create beautiful, porcelain-like fragrant flower clusters. These flower clusters come with plant maturaity (time), great light and appropriate plant feed (we recommend the range of plant care products from We The Wild
). Ensure you don't pick them as Hoya's flowers bloom at the same bud node each year, so if you cut them off, you lose that flower node forever.
As a general rule, a plant in a well-lit, warm spot will require watering every week. In a darker, humid environment watering every few weeks will be enough.
Hoya's generally prefer to dry out completely between each watering and will not be happy having water sitting at their base as this will cause the plant to rot.
WE RECOMMENDED PLANTING IN...
Hoya's prefer to live in a snug pot, replicating how they would be happiest in nature.
For these 17cm Hoya's we recommend a pot with drainage.
If you'd like us to do the dirty work for you simply request your plant to be potted into your chosen pot and we'll take care of the rest!
