Hoya in 6" nursery bowl pot


☀️ Hoyas thrive in indirect and bright sunlight. Placing them a couple feet from your window will provide them with enough sunlight to grow quickly. Like most plants, they do not like direct sunlight touching their leaves, especially the hotter afternoon sun.

🌡️ Grows best in warmer than average room temperatures between 60-85 F but no lower than 55°F. Avoid sudden temperature drops and cold drafts. Hoyas love humidity, and a level of about 60% is ideal. Since most homes sit around 30 to 50%, you can provide additional humidity from a humidifier, daily misting or placing in a bathroom or kitchen.

💧Use filtered or distilled water because they can have a difficult time processing salts. Water about once a week to keep soil evenly moist but never soggy. Allow the top Inch of soil to dry out before watering again. Once weekly should be sufficient but in winter it's recommended to water less frequently.

🪴 Do not repot right away. Let the plant stay in its nursery pot for at least a few months to get used to its new home. Most plants go dormant in the winter so It's best to not repot them then because they could go in to shook. It's best to repot every 2-3 years during the growing months of spring and summer. This plant grows well in a standard potting mix. It is beneficial to blend in some sand and perlite to Improve drainage. They can become slightly root-bound before repotting.

💊It is best to fertilize every 4-6 weeks during the growing season. Feed during the spring and summer months with a fertilizer that has a NPK (nitrogen-phosphorous-potassium) ratio of approximately 10-10-10. For the amount to use, follow product label instructions. No fertilizer is needed during the winter months when growth naturally slows.

🐜 All plants from Passionate Gem are treated monthly with a natural spray consisting of hydrogen peroxide, natural soap and neem oil diluted with water--but that doesn't mean once they go to a new home it can't catch a critter infestation from surrounding plants or soil. (Even flowers can be a carrier of pests!)  Preventative maintenance Is key! Check your plants often, clean leaves by giving the occasional shower or wiping with a clean damp cloth. Use clean pots and fresh quality soil when transplanting. A spray, like mentioned above, is a really great preventative measure as well.
