Calling all Hoya Experts and Lovers...please HELP!! 2 weeks ago I moved him from a low lit location indoors, to a sunnier east facing window. I also added more soil to the pot to cover exposed roots, and watered only once to dampen the soil. The leaves are turning yellow and falling off, starting at the base and continuing upwards.
What do I do? Relocate back to the original location..remove the soil addition...attempt to salvage and propagate (I've never attempted before, so ZERO experience in that arena).
The stem feels dry at the base also, but plump and tender where the leaves are unaffected

Relocate back to the original location and remove the soil addition would be best. Laying soil on top of the old soil will cause the plant to hold too much water and turn the leaves yellow.
NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌

Thank you, Luke. I was thinking of doing that, but more worried that it won't recover.
