Hoya Macrophylla is a unique species in the Hoya genus. It has relatively larger foliage when compared to other Hoya plants, with Macrophylla meaning "having large leaves". Macrophylla features textured waxy leaves in dark green with distinctive protruding green veins.
This Hoya's vines can reach up to 8 feet in length if grown indoors and 12 feet long when planted outdoors. This easy-care vining plant looks lovely trailing from a high shelf or hanging basket. Each leaf can grow up to 6 inches.
Hoya Macrophylla produces clusters of fragrant star-shaped flowers that last for about one week. The flowers are white with red and pink shades in the middle.
Hoya Macrophylla loves bright indirect sunlight. An ideal spot for this plant is a well-lit room with plenty of filtered light or a partially shaded place in the garden where it can receive lots of dappled sunlight. Avoid harsh direct sunlight.
This plant is slightly drought-tolerant. It needs watering about once every 1-2 weeks or when the soil is almost dry. Reduce watering in the winter. Use the soak and dry method and make sure you drain all excess water to avoid root rot.
Hoya loves light, porous, well-draining soils. Proper drainage is crucial for this plant, so you should choose a pot with at least one drainage hole. You can mix some perlite with houseplant potting soil to increase drainage and aeration.
Hoya thrives in temperatures of 60°F-80°F. It is vital to ensure the room temperature does not fall below 55°F. This plant prefers medium to high humidity to dry air, so it is recommended that you use a mister, pebble trays, or humidifiers on hot dry days.
Hoya should be fertilized during the growing season (spring/summer)with diluted houseplant fertilizer once a month.

When you purchase online, your plants have to go through lots of stress while traveling so they may need a few days to adjust to their new environment and thrive. If your plant does not perk back up after a few days of care, let us know and we will send replacements free of charge. Remember that we always try our best to accommodate you.
It’s advised that you should repot the plant as soon as you get it. After repotting, your new houseplant will most likely struggle with transplant shock. It may appear droopy, faded, or have a slower growth rate than usual during this time. This is completely normal, and it’s also normal for transplant shock to hit especially hard after repotting a brand-new houseplant. To make sure your plant has plenty of time to adjust to its new surroundings, wait a day after potting and water your plant. Make sure any excess water drains completely from the pot afterward. Monitor your soil’s moisture levels daily to start creating a watering routine. To help perk up your new houseplant, we recommend adding a little water-soluble fertilizer, compost, or sugar water to your soil to boost its nutrients and help it grow.
