CLASSIFICATION / GENUS:
Apocynacea (milkweed plant) / Hoya
Hoya Nummularioides / Hoya Pubera
This is a great trailing hoya.
This plant can exist outdoors in zones 10a-11. It does not like being in temperatures below 40 degrees F.
Low Maintenance. Great beginner plant.
Bright indirect light, direct sun can scorch its leaves. Can also thrive in low light conditions, but is not favorable.
Like most Hoya plants, these are succulents and require very little water. Water weekly during the summer, and even less in winter time. It is even ok to skip a watering, as they do like to dry out before the next watering. They are very sensitive to overwatering.
Succulent and Cactus soil is great for this Hoya, add in some bits of bark as well. Hoya Chelsea also like to be pot bound, so refrain from upsizing it unless you see substantial roots coming out of the bottom of the pot.
DOES IT FLOWER?
Yes, they blossom a cluster of white with red centers wax flowers. On the smaller side of hoya flowers, they also blossom more in a flat cluster, versus the typical ball shape you see in other hoyas. NOTE: Never trim the spurs on a hoya, as the flower will continue to bloom from these in the years to come.
IS IT POISONOUS/TOXIC?
All Hoyas are considered toxic (as they produce sap similar to the milkweed), but not necessarily poisonous, the amount of ingestion varies from animal, but on a whole the ASPCA regards them as safe to have around pets and children.
CAN IT BE PROPAGATED FROM CUTTINGS?
Yes. These can be propagated anytime using stem tip cuttings. The stems produce aerial roots which can root easily when inserted into a moist medium. Allow your cuttings to dry for a day before planting.
Common Pests: Spider Mites and Mealy bugs / Common diseases: root rot due to overwatering.
WINTER TRAVEL: PLEASE MAKE SURE TO PURCHASE A HEAT-PACK (FOUND WITHIN OUR STORE) IF THE PLANT IS TRAVELING IN BELOW 50 DEGREE WEATHER.
