Hoya Linearis

Hoya Linearis


The Hoya plants are a family of waxy, evergreen leaves. They are naturally a trailing plant, however, you can train them to climb and vine around things too - these characteristics being famous for their popularity.

The Hoya Linearis is one of the most recognisable houseplants around. Its long, needle-like leaves cascade dramatically in a dense display of foliage.

Light: Avoid placing in direct sunlight as it can scorch the leaves. Your Hoya will prefer a bright room.

Watering: Allow top 1-2cm of soil to dry out before re-watering to prevent root rot. This will be around once a week in the warmer months and once ever 2 to 3 weeks during late autumn and winter.

Soil: Well draining soil. Two parts peat-free compost, one part perlite.

Temperature: They enjoy temperatures between 16-27°C. They can tolerate temperatures as low as 10°C, and as high as 35°C.

Repotting: Hoyas don't require regular repotting. Consider repotting yours every 5 years.
