Hi there! Recently i have moved houses and i have taken my hoya plant with me, its new spot gets direct sunlight for 3 hours a day wheres its old spot only recieved indirect sun light throughout the day, lately its leaves have started turning yellow and falling off, its now lost about half of its folige, and the stems/vines have started turning a light brown dried out, and died. The soil is quite moist most of the time, and today i repotted it with new soil hoping to amends the issue. What is happening to my plant and how can i save it? Sad

Too much sun too fast! It will acclimate, although direct sun is not its friend. I have one that sits in a south facing window. The window side is always fried but the room side is gorgeous so, I never turn it. Smiling

Repotting won't help the situation as they are epiphytic.

I would be very concerned about root rot. You mentioned that the soil was staying moist BEFORE you repotted. The new soil will stay too damp even longer now and this is a plant that needs to stay on the dry side. Do allow the soil to dry out before watering and then water very sparingly. A plant can survive changes in light, but suffocating the roots with excess moisture is fatal.
