Description

Hoya linearis is a tender, pendent, epiphytic, succulent, evergreen perennial with slender, soft, green stems bearing linear, hairy, grooved leaves and lax clusters of fragrant, star-shaped, white flowers from late summer into autumn.

Make sure that your Hoya Linearis receives a lot of indirect light. Keep it in a well draining potting mix and water sparingly. Hoya’s like to grow in tight pots so don’t repot them too often.

Many people swear that Hoya’s are the easiest to care houseplants and we believe that too.

Like all Hoya’s, Hoya linearis is ‘pet friendly’ which means it is non-toxic to animals (and humans) when ingested.

The plant is approximately 70cm long and it comes in a plastic nursery pot 12cm.

Care tips

//

Light 

Full sun. 

Water  

Keep the soil moist in spring and summer, dry but not to the point of shriveled foliage in winter. In dry climates more frequent watering may be necessary. Some like to mist the leaves frequently, to clean them and increase humidity…but NOT when the plant is budding or in flower. 

Humidity

 Moderate to high humidity. 

Temperature

 Normal room temperatures, min 20°C. 

Soil   

A moist, well-drained, light soil – African Violet soil with some added perlite – is a good growing medium. 

Fertilizer

 In spring Hoyas react favorably to feeding. A liquid food, about every four weeks, three or four times during the growing season will produce a vigorous growth. Withhold food during the winter. 

Propagation 

Propagate Hoyas by cuttings of top growth, or by leaf cuttings in the same manner as African Violets and Gloxinias. The average cutting or leaf start will produce a blooming plant in two years or less. The easiest method of propagation is by layering. Layers mature faster and do not need as much patience. Pin down a stem, at the joint, in a moist rooting medium. Sever and pot the new plant when roots have formed.
