Hoya curtisii 2.5" pot


Curtis' Waxflower.  Lovely, daintly little variegated vine.  Very different from typical Hoyas, but the flowers are large for its small size. Grows well indoors cascading out of a hanging basket.  I have it on my kitchen windowsill and it is charming.

(Apocynaceae)  Native to tropical Asia.

 

Light: Bright, indirect light indoors.  Outdoors, dappled shade is best.  Hoyas make excellent house plants.

Water:  Hoyas like consistently moist soil that is not waterlogged with a drier rest during the winter months. It's important that they are not overwatered, so so a fluffy mix is a must.

Soil: A moist, well-drained mix with plenty of organic matter.  Standard, peat-based mixes work well as long as they have some additional pumice or perlite mixed in to make it fluffier.  I have also had good success with chopped coconut husk like orchid growers use.

Fertilizer:  During active growth, fertilizer is definitely beneficial.  An all-purpose liquid or slow release fertilizer works well.  If your plant is growing in a pot, it is good to make sure that micronutrients are included in the fertilizer.  It is not advised to fertilize in the winter.

Hardiness:  Zone 12, but most will be grown in containers indoors or under trees in the tropics.
