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.
Soil: Lightweight, fast-draining potting mix
Light: bright indirect
Repotting: Hoya’s like to be pot bound, they need to be repotted very seldom
Please note: Hoya Lineatiswon’t flower unless it receives very bright indirect sunlight. A south-facing window would be ideal, although eastern and western exposures may also work if they are bright enough. This plant will even tolerate a little direct sunlight.
