How to care for Variegated Hoya
Variegated Hoya needs 0.5 cups of water every 12 when it doesn’t get direct sunlight and is potted in a 5" pot.
Use our water calculator to personalize watering recommendations to your environment or download Greg for more advanced recommendations for all of your plants.
Variegated Hoya may have difficulty thriving, and will drop leaves 🍃, without ample sunlight.
Place it less than 3 feet from a south-facing window to maximize the potential for growth.
Select your region to see how the current weather in your area affects the placement of Variegated Hoya in your home 🏡.
Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
By the time your plant has depleted the nutrients in its soil it’s likely grown enough to need a larger pot anyway.
To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your Variegated Hoya after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
This is my favorite plant in my collection! I absolutely love the way the leaves look. The variegated ones are all unique. They do break off easily if you aren't careful but it grows so fast that you won't even notice in a couple weeks.
The vines grow so quickly with adequate care. Mine has 2 and they have grown at least 6 inches each in the last 3 months. A little fertilizer makes all the difference. They will bloom if you take good care of them too!
