Two to three hundred different species of hoya plants exist around the world. They originate from tropical regions of Asia, Australia and Polynesia. Also known as wax plant, hoya plants have leaves that look like they have been sculpted out of wax. They can grow as a shrub or a vine. The flowers develop in clusters and release a sweet fragrance that can fill a small greenhouse or a large room. Hoya flowers come in many shapes, sizes and colors.
Don’t remove the stalks of spent hoya blooms because new blooms will develop from the same stubs in the growing season.
Don’t fertilize hoya plants during winter because it is in a rest period and is not actively growing.
