Hoya patcharawalai (023), also known as Hoya icensis, ranks among my favorite plants, and for good reason! Its growth is robust and swift, and it produces a captivating cluster of flowers characterized by white corollas and pink coronas. What's truly remarkable is its ability to bloom even in the most challenging environments. That's a testament to how undemanding it is to cultivate!
The thickness of its leaves makes it a forgiving plant when it comes to watering. While it can withstand periods of underwatering, don't think that this is its only appealing feature. Remarkably, it has also proven to be tolerant of overwatering, at least in my personal experience. Though I do utilize a well-draining medium, some Hoyas may still be vulnerable to erratic watering schedules. But not this one – it's resilient and adaptable!
I wholeheartedly recommend Hoya patcharawalai (023) to both newcomers and seasoned plant enthusiasts. With its ease of care, striking appearance, and exceptional resilience, it's a plant that promises to be more of a companion than a challenge. If you're seeking a forgiving yet beautiful addition to your collection, look no further – this Hoya will quickly become your botanical best friend!
No barrier between the plant and the light source. Ex: Directly under a grow light, in a sunny window with no curtains or trees.
Low Humidity: Ideally Above 40%
This Hoya tolerates a drier environment. However, it could still benefit from light humidity care, including misting and grouping together with other houseplants. May require humidifier in cooler, drier months.
Loves Heat: Lowest 70F/21C
This hoya does not do well in cold conditions, so be sure to keep in a greenhouse or other temperature controlled space.
This plant has evolved to shift color when exposed to bright sunlight, much like a human getting a tan. This does not harm the plant with proper care.
