The Q&A Archives: Growing Hoyas

Question: My start of a Hoya is growing long and wanting to twist around a small stake in the pot. Should I replant it and put a bark stake in the pot? What size pot?

Answer: There are two types of hoyas, one grows about 3' tall and the other has a vining habit and will grow to 10' tall. If yours is the vining type, plan on providing some kind of support as it grows. Hoyas bloom best when they're potbound so use a container just slightly larger than the root system, and provide a trellis or tall stake to help it stand upright.

Hoyas have beautiful blossoms - enjoy!
