Hoya sunrise is a popular plant thanks to how its leaves develop red flecks and patches, contrasting beautifully with its dark green leaves and bright veins. This Hoya is a hybrid between the Hoya Obscura and the Hoya lacunosa ssp. Pallidiflora, and was hybridized back in 1992!
Water: Only water this hoya when it's soil has almost completely dried out. Always ensure that excess was is able to drain away as to avoid root rot.
Light: Does best with lots of bright, indirect light. High amounts of light helps this hoya keep its leaves colourful and beautiful. It is able to handle lower levels of light, but you may notice dulling or paling of leaves.
Soil: Does best in a loose, well aerated soil. A mix of peat, bark, and vermiculite is best.
Humidity: Like all hoyas, this guy can handle standard humidity, but fairs better with higher levels of humidity. Mist often or use a pebble tray for best results.
Fertilizer: Fertilize once a month throughout growing season using a dilute solution of liquid plant fertilizer. Do not fertilize over winter months.
NOTE: Every plant is different, and may present their colours differently from the one pictured. Some will quickly develop more colour when exposed to greater light levels, while others might stubbornly remain more green than anything else. This is normal, and just continue to allow your plant access to light and sun and it should eventually develop more colour.
