How Fast Does Hoya Grow?
Hoyas can be really slow growers. I’ve found they tend to slow down even more when repotting, or if I buy a new one, it tends to not grow for a few months. They seem to get a bit shocked and stop growing when they go through a big change like repotting. So don’t worry if your hoya is not growing after buying it, you just need to give it time.
Regarding flowering, hoya take anywhere from 2 to 7 years to reach maturity, and that is normally when they will first bloom.
You can speed up the growth by giving it the ideal growing conditions, especially a lot of indirect sunlight.
Tip: we recommend Etsy for buying plants. Look for the best rated seller you can, and try to buy as close to your home as possible so the plant does not travel too far.
