Houseplant of the Month: Porcelain Flower Hoya
Hoya vines are absolutely stunning indoor plants.
The Hoya climbing vine is easy to care for in most home situations provided they get plenty of indirect light and high humidity. These are long-lived plants that prefer cramped growing conditions.
There is no need to prune a Hoya; in fact, the tendrils at the ends are where new foliage will grow and flowers develop.
Hoya plants are easily propagated by cuttings. Cuttings root easily in plain water (use rainwater for best results) or with the cut end inserted into African violet soil mixed by half with perlite. In about two years, the cutting will result in a mature plant capable of blooming. The ease of propagation makes growing Hoya vines to give to family and friends almost effortless and enables you to pass along this amazing plant.
