Are you looking for a low-maintenance miniature Hoya vine? Let us introduce you to a perennial climber, the Hoya curtisii plant. It grows horizontally to form tight mats on the soil, turning into a cascading dangler later. The small and olive green succulent leaves are mottled with grey and have pointed apex. Moreover, this compact grower gets beautiful star-shaped flowers, growing in clusters to enhance the outlook of your thick-leaved vine.

Care

Light: Bright, indirect light is best for the optimal growth of the Hoya Curtsii plant. Choose an indoor position near a window that will provide plenty of indirect bright sunlight. The plant cannot tolerate direct sunlight combined with high heat, as it will scorch the flowers and leaves.

Water: The Hoya Curtsii is semi-succulent, so it can survive with minimal watering. You should maintain slight moisture in the potting soil, but thee plant can tolerate short dry periods because the semi-succulent vines are good at storing moisture. So even if you forget to water the plant once or twice, it still has some moisture stored to survive.

Temperature/Humidity: Prefers high humidity.

Soil/Potting: 
All Hoyas need to be potted in planters with drainage. These plants are very sensitive to too much water, so be sure to use a well draining soil with plenty of pumice and/or perlite. We suggest 1/3 peat, 1/3 perlite, and 1/3 orchid mix(bark, perlite, or charcoal). Good drainage and aeration are key! Hoyas don't mind being rootbound, it's said keeping your Hoya rootbound will accelerate blooming!

Care Tips: Prone to spider mites and mealy bugs dependent on environment and exposure. Never cut the long tendrils! Leaves and flower clusters develop from these.
