How to care for your Hoya australis

Native habitat

The Hoya vine grows on rainforest margins and rocky terrain, mostly occurring in Eastern and Northern Australia.

Light and position in the home

Bright indirect light will keep a steady pace of growth throughout the year. Avoid intense direct light as this may burn the leaves.


This plant only has low to medium water requirements. Like other succulent plants, the leaves store water, so Hoya only needs watering every 10 days or so. Allow the upper half of the soil to dry out between watering.
