Key Benefits 

Hoyas are sometimes referred to as “scent mimics”. These scent mimics can have a wide range of scents. Some can smell as honey while others like the ‘Corpse flower’ can smell of rotting meat. Most Hoya’s smells are reminiscent of vanilla, and other confectioner goods. The ‘Tricolor’ is said to smell like chocolate!

Hoya 'Tricolor' Care Tips

How to care for information:

  • Hoyas are susceptible to root rot, it’s best to plant your hoya in a soil medium with high porosity. Add orchid bark and perlite to your soil medium.
  • Allow the soil to completely dry in between watering. The succulent leaves will hold water. During warmer months, keep the soil moist but not water logged.
  • Follow a monthly fertilizing schedule when the plant is actively growing. In most cases, this is in the spring and summer. Use a balanced fertilizer - this means a ratio of NPK that is all the same. Ex: 10-10-10.
  • Provide a trellis for extra support and keep the plant appearing nice and tidy.
