Hi everyone! A few months back I started really liking plants; started with succulents, and now I love flowers and other plants. Anyways, my mother had this Hoya plant in her backyard and I decided to tend to it since she never really paid much attention to it. It's blooming now but the leaves are yellow and there are patches. I was wondering what I could do to save it? Just a bit on the history of this particular plant: my mom had it out hanging on her fence, full sun and heat. I live in Florida so there were days where the plant was probably over watered, too(?) I would appreciate any adjustments I can make! And don't feel shy to "slap my hand" if you see something off in the picture haha thank you!! Also! New leaves have started to grow since I started taking care of it but I'm sure I can do more :)

Glad to see new leaves are forming. It will just eventually continue to dry up and drop those yellowed leaves. It may still try to form new leaves on those nodes, once the older leaves have died off.

Always position it in part shade, not in full sun. Hoyas do not enjoy too much direct sun.

Thank you so much for the advise :D I moved it a little further in the gazebo now that you've told me since I saw that during the late afternoons it was getting more direct sun. Thank you for letting me know and giving me hope Smiling

Agreed, it looks like it's just frying in the sun. I don't see any leaves rotting or shriveling, which would be more of an indicator of overwatering. Outdoors, getting rained on regularly is rarely a problem, unless the soil and pot don't drain adequately.

Thank you! Smiling I wasn't sure if maybe it had some sort of disease but now that I see it, it does look like it was frying 😭. Thank you again Smiling
