HOYA ARCHBOLDIANA


Hoyas are tropical vines that grow better if kept above 50°, even though some species
tolerate near freezing temperatures for a while. They grow in the shade and don't need
a lot of water. Keep the soil slightly dry. Wet soils can kill a Hoya fast. Hoyas are very
good indoors 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 but more in during
the warm weather. Some Hoyas are also very fragrant and some species even smell
like chocolate.


Hoya archboldiana:
A nice hoya that has big leaves and gets gorgeous beige cup shaped flowers. The corolla is a beige color and the corona is a deep dark red. The leaves are long and dark green. This hoya gets big and grows fast and you will need some space. It is a great reward when this one blooms.
