Hoya Carnosa is a plant that enjoys bright natural light and can tolerate low water. Indirect sunlight is best but the more light it gets the more flowers it will produce.
It does not like to have its roots wet so it is best to let it dry between waterings to prevent root rot. It requires a well-draining soil with pumice and/or perlite. You can do this by setting it in a tray of pebbles. Just make sure the water doesn’t touch the pot.
Hoyas do not require a lot of fertilizer but will bloom better when fertilized. Follow the instructions for any general-purpose houseplant fertilizer.
