Propagation

From Early Summer TO Late Summer

You can grow this plant from a cutting. Take herbaceous or woody stem cuttings in the summer. It will produce roots fairly quickly. Place in a light place, not in direct sunlight and allow to root.

 

Flowering

From Late Spring TO Late Summer

Highly scented clusters of star shaped pale pink to dark pink flowers that appear wax like.

 

Planting Season

From Early Spring TO Late Winter

Re pot cuttings when they have rooted. Place in a sunny, light position, but shade from direct bright sun to avoid foliage scorch. In winter a minimum night temperature of not less than 16°C -18°C (60-65°F) for H. bella. Sharply draining, well aerated compost is essential for hoya to thrive. This can be made using one part by volume orchid bark, one part peat free compost and one part coarse perlite. Alternatively, use cactus compost but add some extra perlite.
