Don't forget these...
We are splashing a wave of silver onto the no-fuss, much adored Hoya Pubicalyx . Hoya pubicalyx is an evergreen perennial climber. This is a popular indoor plant native to the Philippines. The deep-green lanceolate succulent leaves, mottled with greyish speck patterns growing on purplish-grey stems make this plant a stunning addition to any collection.
Light: Bright, indirect light is best for the optimal growth of the Hoya Pubicalyx 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 Pubicalyx 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: Can thrive in both lower and higher humidity conditions.
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.
