Hoyas in general are twining vines. They usually live in rainforests, on trees. Many species like this one are easy to grow because they can grow in many different conditions. They grow in bright shade or morning sun but they will also grow indoors as house plants as long as bright light is provided. They are well suited for baskets, trellises or ladders. They will tolerate a few weeks of drought but they are sensitive to frost and cold weather in general. Hoyas grow in fluffy soil with organic matter and sand or other draining materials.
