Hoyas are becoming more and more popular each and every day. Over the past years we have collected over 300 different Hoyas and there are probably close to 1,000 species, hybrids and cultivars out there today. Hoyas are tropical vines/plants that grow better if kept above 50° F, even though some species can tolerate near freezing temperatures for a short period of time. We grow our hoyas outside in south Florida in bright shade/filtered light and most don't need a lot of water. Keep the soil slightly dry, wet soils can kill a Hoya fast. Hoyas that have thin leaves usually require more water. Hoyas can also be good indoor plants and are very popular for that reason. They don't like big pots and bloom better when root bound. Some people grow them in hanging baskets and let them cascade, others use a small trellis to wrap the vines around. Hoyas are epiphytes, like orchids, therefore the potting soil has to be porous. I suggest that you get a good quality potting soil and mix about 1/3 of an orchid mix (bark, perlite, charcoal.) Fertilization is average. Once Hoyas start to bloom, they do so almost continuously (for us), but more during the warm weather. Some Hoya flowers are also very fragrant and some flowers even smell like chocolate or peanut butter! Not only are they fragrant and easy to grow, but most of them have really cool looking flowers! They are nicknamed "Wax Flowers" because the flowers don't even look real. They also have really neat leaves. Some have heart-shaped leaves (The Hoya kerrii's), a lot of them have variegated leaves, twisted leaves, fuzzy leaves, and one even resembles a fishtail (Hoya polyneura 'Fishtail'). This is most definitely a type of plant you should add to your collection!!
