Hoya macrophylla, also known as the wax plant, is a beautiful and popular houseplant with thick, waxy leaves and clusters of fragrant flowers. Here are some tips for caring for this plant:

  1. Light: The Hoya macrophylla prefers bright, indirect light. It can tolerate some direct sunlight, but avoid exposing it to intense afternoon sun as it can scorch the leaves.

  2. Watering: Allow the top inch of soil to dry out before watering. Water the plant deeply but less frequently, and ensure that excess water drains out of the bottom of the pot. Overwatering can lead to root rot.

  3. Humidity: Hoya macrophylla prefers a humid environment. You can mist the leaves regularly, place a tray of water near the plant, or use a humidifier to increase the humidity levels around the plant.

  4. Soil: Use a well-draining potting mix that is rich in organic matter. The soil should be slightly moist but not waterlogged.

  5. Fertilizer: Feed the plant with a balanced fertilizer every 2-4 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce the frequency of feeding during the fall and winter.

  6. Pruning: You can prune the plant to shape it or to remove any dead or yellow leaves. The Hoya macrophylla can also be propagated from stem cuttings.

  7. Temperature: The plant prefers warm temperatures between 60-80°F (15-27°C). Avoid exposing the plant to temperatures below 50°F (10°C) or to cold drafts.

  8. Trellis or support: As the Hoya macrophylla grows, it will need a trellis or support structure to climb on.

Hoya macrophylla can be a slow grower, but with proper care, it can produce beautiful clusters of fragrant flowers and is a stunning addition to any indoor garden.
