Hoya wayetii is a beautiful, trailing plant with variegated leaves. It's also known as the Wax Plant or Porcelain Flower. Here are some care tips for this plant:

  1. Light: Hoya wayetii prefers bright, indirect light. It can tolerate some lower light conditions, but its growth and color will be less vibrant.

  2. Water: Water the plant when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Water thoroughly, and allow any excess water to drain out of the bottom of the pot. Avoid overwatering, as this can cause root rot.

  3. Humidity: Hoya wayetii likes moderate to high humidity levels. You can increase humidity by misting the leaves with water, using a humidifier, or placing a tray of water near the plant.

  4. Temperature: The ideal temperature range for this plant is between 60-85°F (16-29°C).

  5. Soil: Hoya wayetii prefers a well-draining potting mix that is rich in organic matter. You can use a mixture of peat moss, perlite, and vermiculite.

  6. Fertilizer: Fertilize the plant once a month during the growing season (spring and summer) with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer.

  7. Pruning: Prune the plant to maintain its shape and remove any yellowing or damaged leaves.

  8. Support: Hoya wayetii is a climbing plant, so it may benefit from a support structure, such as a trellis or moss pole.

  9. Propagation: Hoya wayetii can be propagated by stem cuttings. Take a stem cutting with a few leaves, and plant it in a pot with moist potting mix. Cover the pot with a plastic bag to create a mini greenhouse, and place it in bright, indirect light.

  10. Pests and Diseases: Hoya wayetii is relatively pest-free, but watch out for mealybugs and spider mites. Overwatering can cause root rot.

Remember to keep your plant away from pets and children, as it's toxic when ingested. Hoya wayetii is a relatively low-maintenance plant that can add a touch of elegance to any room with its variegated leaves and trailing growth habit.
