- Hardy to 55° makes a beautiful summer hanging basket that can be easily cared for during the winter
- Never cut the long tendrils! Leaves and flower clusters develop from these.
- All Hoyas need to be potted in planters with drainage. These plants are very sensitive to too much water, so be sure to use a well draining soil with plenty of pumice and/or perlite.
- Keeping your plant tightly root-bound (in a smaller than normal pot) will accelerate blossoming
