Hoya Pachyclada (#14)

Botanical Name — Hoya pachyclada
Common Name — Wax Plant
Plant Family — Asclepiadaceae

Hoya pachyclada is one of my Hoya collections, this hoya is a vining wax plant and is native from Thailand. This is slow-grower hoya with thick oval-liked leaves that has a soft point. A hoya that produce a clusters of white, star-shaped flowers.

Like other types of Hoya, pachyclada likes a few hours of direct sun but not in intense afternoon sun, this has to avoid because the sunlight will burn the leaves. Even though this hoya will survive in bright indirect light but it is still best to be exposed to the sun for a few hours to boost growth and flowers.

However, if your place is the same as mine, not a lot of sunlight, you can use grow lights. Though, the effectiveness of growth varies but it is still good for the plant.Hoya pachyclada can tolerate high temperatures in the 70s and 80s or higher. They are not cold hardy, however. Avoid temperatures below 50 ºF.

Hoya Pachyclada loves high humidity like other hoyas but still this hoya can thrive to moderate humidity levels. For watering this hoya, I always checked them by touching the soil but usually I have watering schedule for all of my plants. It is always Friday night. This is the only day, I have plenty of time to accomodate them.

Fertilized this hoya once every two weeks or during active growing season mostly in spring time.

I cannot say much about this hoya as this is my first time having this, I am hoping this will grow healthy and gives me flowers next year.

Hoya Odorata (Hoya #13)

Hoya Odorata Close up

Hoya Odorata is one of my newest Hoya in my collection. She came from Thailand, so basically this hoya is still stress from travelling but this hoya is doing fine. I received 55 Hoya plants dated August 18, 2021, this Hoya Odorata is one of them.

Hoya Odorata is came from Apocynaceae family. It really surprised me that this hoya is came from my native country the Philippines. Honestly, I did not see this plant in my hometown probably in the other province.

This hoya has tough leaves or shall we say rigid leaves when we touch, they said it is very easy to grow. Let see, though. Most Hoyas they said are easy to grow but in reality it really depends on the plants if they like to grow or not, I feel that they are like human beings sometimes hard headed, hahaha.

Since hoya odorata is new to me, I did not see the actual flower but according to my research this hoya have fragrant flowers like most Hoyas.

Taking care of Hoya odorata will be based also on the other hoyas the way I care them.

Will update soon as it blloms.

Hoya Macrophylla Albomarginata (Hoya #12)

Hoya Macrophylla Stunning New leaf

Hoya Macrophylla Albomarginata is one of my Hoya collection, it is one o the most wanted plant for Hoya loving people. This hoya is being loved by many collectors because of its unique foliage. Hoya Plants are known also as wax plants because the leaves are shiny or waxy.

Hoya Macrophyllas like moderate amount of lights and of course well-draining soil is a must. This plant doesn’t like to be wet or moist all the time. Watering or this hoya most o the time I watered it once a week and fertilize also once a week.

Taking care of Hoya Macrophylla is only basic like other house plants.

Hoya Polyneura aka Fishtail (Hoya #11)

Hoya Polyneura aka Fishtail is listed as my Hoya #11 eventhough, this plant is the newest plant I purchase. i bought this hoya from Facebook Marketplace for $47 with no roots maybe about three weeks now.

Currently, I just checked my Hoya Polyneura and I see a little roots coming out. So happy to see them. I was a bit worried after 3 days when I brought this hoya home since my youngest son always lean on the grow tent and sometimes he forgot that he is kicking while watching TV. This little hoya cuttings fell off together with my other collections, luckily the hoya is fine.

As we can see the roots are coming out. Hopefully, my hoya polyneura will grow healthy…

Will give you update soon as I will transfer my hoya to the soil. For the maintime, my Hoya Polyneura is in my grow tent, I put her on the second shelve, not too expose to the grow lights.
