formerly Hoya sp. Square Leaf - fast growing novelty shaped leaves - gorgeous freshly scented blooms - easy to grow but can be a heavy feeder - give a drink of epsom salt water if the edges of the leaves turn yellow - one of my favorites!!!

"If you need me to point out this one, clearly you just joined us. Hello, nice to meet you! The fat little lozenge buds and puffed up blooms of this plant have been described as everything from cupcakes and mochi to baby bonnets and little girl buttons. Basically all that is adorable on this planet. Now, recall that people actually buy this plant for its leaves! These are fuzzy grassy green rectangles with softly dented surfaces as though subject to miniature hailstorms. They sprout quite amicably from remarkably fragile-looking pubescent vines." ~ JLD

KEY to Species Detail

Cuttings can be a quick and inexpensive way to expand your collection. I offer cuttings of at least 2 nodes and many more when my Mother Plants allow.

1. Fill a tiny pot (no larger than 3 inches) with a loose light mix or soil.
2. Trim the stem one approximately inch below the bottom node.
3. Tuck the freshly cut end into your soil.
4. Keep soil/mix wet until roots appear. When you tug on the cutting and it seems stable...roots are evident.
5. Reduce watering and continue to mist but only water when the soil is nearly dry.

Grow the rooted cutting in a tiny pot until its roots have filled it or is unmanageable due to being top heavy. Over-potting is the quickest way to cause your hoya to rot.
Have fun and remember that hoyas thrive on neglect.

PLANTS
Unpack the plant carefully...there might just be a peduncle on it!
Remove as much of the shredded packing from the mix as possible...some left behind will go away.
Be sure to unclip any vine that is facing downward.
If you don’t, the vine may die back to a node that is not forced down.
Water and mist the plant well since it has been a few days since it has seen any moisture
It’s best to let it in the clear pot for a week so it may become acclimated to it’s new surroundings.
After that you may repot but in the same size pot...DO NOT OVER POT!
Over-potting can cause...root rot...stunted growth... no blooms.
Most hoyas prefer to be root bound in order to thrive and reward you with the gorgeous blooms!

CUTTINGS
Fill a shallow tray or container with warm water and a few drops of Superthrive, Eleanor's VF-11 or MSU. (these aid in plant energy)
Gently float the cuttings in the water and soak for a few hours to overnight, depending on the dehydration level.
When the cuttings have had the chance to plump up and regain moisture, they are ready for the rooting process.
If you are not able to immediately pot the cuttings up for rooting, keep them in the tray and provide humidity thru misting or showering them twice a day.

While on a trip I once collected hoya cuttings and kept them in my hotel shower for the duration of the 10 day trip.
I then put them into my carry on bag and rooted them when I returned home.
