In-Depth Care Guide

The complex-looking foliage, the fluffy white flowers, and its symbiotic relationship with ants makes Hoya imbricata an amazing addition to your collection. Since it might need a little more attention compared to regular plants, here's more detailed information about how to take care of this beauty:

Since Hoyas have succulent characteristics, it is not necessary to water them every day. To grow a healthy plant, make sure that the 1" or 2" of the soil are slightly dry and only then water your plant. Since this plant naturally grows in very small/limited substrates, you'll probably need to water more frequently. However, don't let any water accumulate in the roots, leading to plant suffocation and death. 

Overwatering the plant may cause stress and infections. It goes the same way around: a very dry plant will grow orange/yellow leaves and lose its structural strength.

Pro tip: it is sometimes recommended to water the plant with low-chlorine and lukewarm water.
