Hoya by David Cumming

A pretty hanging plant that can also flower!

The waxflower is a strong houseplant! The fleshy foliage gives it the look of a succulent - and it actually is one. Waxflower should flower every year and will do so abundantly with pink flowers with a yellow centre in a hanging umbel. These flowers often smell delightful. Only water your waxflower when the potting compost feels dry. This plant can hang in a sunny spot so is perfect hanging in a window. A tall planter would look nice with this hanging over the sides too. Order this easily grown houseplant right now.

    How to plant the Hoya in a pot?
    This houseplant is delivered in a standard growers pot. It’s best for the growth of the Hoya to plant it in a decorative planter with trellis. So you can lead up the growing branches.

    Cover the bottom of the decorative planter with a layer of potting soil. The Hoya should be 1 to 2 cm below the rim. Remove the growers pot and place the plant in the middle of the decorative pot. Fill the pot with fresh potting soil and press it down slightly.

    How to take care of Hoyas?
    Hoyas don't like a lot of water. A weekly dash is sufficient. Dissolve a little flowering plant fertiliser in the irrigation water every second week. The Hoya needs a rest period in November and December. Then water less and don't fertilise.

    Do not put the plant too close to the heating. The hot airflow can dry out the leaves too quickly. You can leave the old flowers. Maybe they will bloom again! The Hoya enjoys a light spot with morning or evening sun.
