Hoya 'Silver Splash' Care Guide
Prefers bright, indirect light or filtered bright light
Allow soil to completely dry in between watering. The succulent leaves will hold water. During warmer months, keep the soil moist.
Average from 18°C to 24°C
Follow a monthly fertilizing schedule when the plant is actively growing. In most cases, this is in the spring and summer. Use a balanced fertilizer - this means a ratio of NPK that is all the same. Ex: 10-10-10.
Can be done every 12-18 months. Choose a pot that is 2” larger in diameter than the original pot. Only do so when necessary as Hoyas prefer to be rootbound.
Provide a trellis for extra support and keep the plant appearing nice and tidy.
