Did you know that there are 200 to 300 varieties of hoya, most of which comes from the tropical forests of south and south-east Asia?
This Hoya Krohniana species is just one of them - it comes from the Philippines and is super similar to the Hoya Lacunosa.
This Hoya Krohniana is a succulent vine plant that can climb if it wants to.
Plant fact for you...
The name “Hoya” honours Thomas Hoy who was gardener to the Duke of Northumberland and the first to bring this pretty hanging house plant to the UK.
These pretty plants also help to clean the air. In a study by NASA Hoya Plants were found to remove Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from the air. Sources of VOCs
include many household products, such as; paints, paint strippers and other solvents,
aerosol sprays, cleansers and disinfectants, air fresheners and many more.
They do not like too much water, little and often, spraying frequently as they like humid conditions. Bright light, but shade from full sun.
Place them in bright, indirect sunlight.
In the winter growth will slow down. With Hoyas the general rule is - the lower the light, the slower the growth rate. What I've found is that different Hoyas grow at slightly different rates. So don't worry if one of your hoya plants is growing quicker than the others.
These guys like a bright warm room. Consider a south-facing room. They are great on shelves or in Macrame hangers.
Completely non-toxic for humans and pets.
