Feed your hoya pachyclada a well diluted balanced feed once a month in spring and summer. It’s important to water it down to avoid fertilizer burn.
Hoya Pachyclada Soil
A mix of equal parts soil, perlite and orchid bark will work well, the roots hate to sit in water logged soil so you want something that is really well draining.
When To Repot
Check the plant every year at Easter and pot it up a size if needed. It is fine to be a little bit root bound.
Hoyas are ok in most household humidity levels, but will do best if you can give them 60% or more. Get a humidity meter if you can to keep an eye on levels.
Aim for a range of 15-28°C (59-82°F).
How To Propagate Hoya Pachyclada
Propagate a hoya pachyclada by taking cuttings that have two nodes and a few leaves. Take the leaves from the bottom node, and put the cutting in water. There should be at least one or two leaves above the water. Once it roots, pot them up in hoya soil and treat as a juvenile plant.
