I have a Hoya plant that I belive originates from Hawaii with beautiful white and purple star shape flowers.
Can you tell me how much sun, water and fertilizer they require?

Here are some general care tips for Hoyas: Provide average household temperatures in spring, summer and autumn, but keep the plant cool in the winter (50F - 55F). Give the plant bright light - some direct sunshine is beneficial. Water liberally from spring to autumn, but sparingly in winter. (Allow the soil to dry slightly between waterings.) Mist the leaves regularly except when it is in bloom. Don't disturb the plant once flower buds appear, don't remove the dead flowers and don't repot until it is absolutely necessary. You can feed with a half-strength dilution of liquid fertilizer every 3 weeks, beginning in spring when new growth starts and continuing until late summer.
