What type of soil do I use for this plant? Any suggestions recommendations are much appreciated. I just ordered them and will have them in about 7 to 10 days. I ordered 3 of them. Going to put them in one pot. @sarahsalith @Gordo

I have something similar to @Sassylimey I go with 40% potting soil, 30% perlite and 30% cactus or seedling mix with some orchid bark tossed in.

Your gonna LOVE THEM! Hoyas (most of them) grow so fast!!
I just googled this plant i was curious. Here's a link to the care of the plant https://indoorhomegarden.com/hoya-krimson-princess/#:~:text=Soil%20For%20Your%20Hoya%20Krimson,perlite%20and%20%2F%20or%20orchid%20bark.
Hope this helps!
@KikiGoldblatt beautiful Hoya. I just re-potted 2 of mine yesterday. I used 2 parts cactus, succulent mix with 1 part perlite
@Sassylimey thank you. I’ll get some. I wasn’t sure what they took soil wise.
@KikiGoldblatt I'm excited the one in front is a Hoya Memoria and she's growing like crazy.. I'm so in love with Hoyas I know you'll love them too πŸŒΏπŸ’šπŸ’žπŸ₯°
Just popping in to also advocate for tossing some orchid bark in!
@sarahsalith awesome, I have all of that on hand so that will be perfect. Thank you so much.
Morning @KikiGoldblatt I would use what you have like you mentioned. Just adjust for your growing conditions and watering habits. I use terracotta pots. I use 20% potting mix 30% orchard bark 30% perlite 10% horticultural charcoal and 10% big bark chips and some worm castings mixed in. No matter what plants want to live and I am sure you will take amazing care of the beautiful plant 🌱
