Let your hair down.

The Hoya linearis is naturally an epiphyte, growing on trees in the Himalayan region of northern India. It dangles from the branches similarly to how Spanish moss grows. It's different to other hoyas which usually have waxy thick leaves. The leaves of the linearis are silky soft and downy, making them a wonder to to touch (although, apparently plants don't like being touched), but it will be hard to keep your hands off this one!

Comes in a 12cm hanging nursery pot. Decorative pot sold separately.

Caring for Lindile

Light

Hoyas prefer bright filtered light through an east or north facing window, a little direct morning sun is beneficial for flowering.

Water & humidity

Hoyas are succulent like, and hate having wet feet. Let at least the top half of the soil dry out before watering again deeply. However, don't let them go completely dry during hot summers. In winter reduce watering. Hoyas adapt well to normal household humidity.

Feeding

Hoya's are not heavy feeders. Fertilise twice in summer with organic fertiliser. Cut down if you want to reduce growth rate.

Re-potting

Hoya linearis likes being root bound in its little pot. Wait 1 - 2 years before re-potting. You can always place the grow pot inside a decorative planter. If re-pottting use 1/2 well draining indoor potting mix, 1/4 bark chips and 1/4 succulent mix. 

Atrium Top Tip

Hoya's only bloom when the plant is 3 + years old. It will need bright light and even a little sun. Try not to disturb the roots or move it around too much.

Quirky plant fact

There are around 200 different species of Hoya. Some grow symbiotically with ants, even growing in the middle of an ant's nest. As the plant grows the ants use the stem to provide support for their tunnels, while they in turn help nourish the plant.
