Hoya Carnosa Plant Care Basics
 
SOIL
Generally speaking, the soil for Hoyas should be very light & airy.
 
The single most important factor when choosing soil for Hoya carnisa is to actually choose soil that is well-draining.
 
LIGHT
Bright, indirect sunlight is what your Hoya carnosa likes best. As with many other houseplants, keep it out of direct sunlight, as this may result in its leaves getting burned.
If you are unsure about what bright, indirect sunlight means exactly, we encourage you to have a look at our guide on light levels.
That said, Hoya carnosa is not very picky about the exact amount of indirect sunlight it gets. So you could either place it in a eastern, western or northern-facing window.
A southern-facing window is not recommended, though, as your Wax plant would get too much sunlight like that.
 
WATERING
During growing season, you will want to water when the top layers of soil (top 2-3 cm, top inch respectively) are dried out.
In winter, water less. In fact, in winter your hoya will only need a minimal amount of water. Regular waterings are not recommended during winter.
Compared to many other houseplants, most hoya species (hoya carnosa included) like to dry out a bit more between waterings.
