Hoya plants are a semi-succulent, perennial, vine-like species famous for its lush, waxy foliage and striking blooms. The plants are native to Asia and Australia. They are easy-to-care-for, slow-growing, live long and hence perfect for novice plant lovers.

The Hoya Bella is popular because of its ease of growing and its beautiful and tiny white-pinkish flowers in the shape of stars. They grow in ball-shaped clusters and appear from early spring right through the summer. The flowers can last up to a few weeks and healthy plants flower abundantly.

Plant Care:

  • A fast-draining light and airy potting mix with additions of perlite, orchid bark and peat can be helpful to avoid sogginess.
  • A decent amount of warmth and bright but indirect light usually produces the best results in terms of growth and flowering
  • During the active growth period in the spring and summer, it will need more regular watering. Avoid waterlogged conditions to prevent flower drop and root rot.
  • These plants appreciate consistent and warm temperatures. Anything below 50oF can create issues.
  • A fertilizer that is high in potassium will help produce the best results in terms of flowering.
