Cultivation Tips For Hoya aff. clemensiorum (IML 1752)

I failed with this plant so many times, and I finally know why; the soil was too heavy for it. The secret lies in using coconut husk chips, which allows the roots to breathe freely while also holding enough moisture . Water when dry by soaking the root ball quickly, let dry and repeat. The plant even does well with nighttime temps falling into the upper 50’s when handled in this manner. Lighting should be somewhat shaded or the leaves will quickly turn red.
