Plant Care – Hoya Carnosa in a Hanging Pot
Light: Place your Hoya Carnosa in a Hanging Pot under bright and indirect sunlight, and do avoid direct sunlight because it will cause its leaves to turn light green and maybe even yellow. The plant can tolerate low light, however, it is not an ideal environment for them to grow in and they might not survive for long.
Water: Water your Hoya thoroughly and make sure that the soil is evenly moist. Water your plant whenever the top inch of the soil is dry to the touch, and make sure to water till some water flows through the pot’s drainage holes. This plant has succulent qualities and will store water for a period of time; it is undemanding.
Soil: Hoya thrives in well-aerated soil that drains water quickly, and therefore should not be placed in soils that are too compacted and heavy, which cause prolonged periods of water retention. And this can lead to root problems, for instance, root rot.
Fertiliser: Fertilise with a general houseplant Fertiliser diluted to half-strength once a month during its growing season.
Humidity Requirement: Low
