Flowering Hoya plants are thirsty, but don't like to sit in soggy soil. Be sure to use a pot with drainage holes and empty the drainage tray. Use room-temperature water for your tropical plants. Cold water can shock them. Misting the foliage with a fine spray of room-temperature water helps, but avoid getting the flowers wet.

Place your Hoya plant in a hanging basket where you can admire it from your favourite seat on the deck or porch. Hoya plants will cling to a small trellis, providing a vertical accent in your tropical container garden.

Hoya's blooms are produced on knobby spurs which should stay on the plant even after blossoms fade. New buds will be generated there to provide bloom the next time. The lesson in this is that to encourage prolific blooming, leave the flower spurs on the plant.

Dropped flower buds are often caused by soil that is too dry or too wet. Also, do not move Hoya when buds are forming because changes in light may cause them to drop. Raising the humidity can help.

Hoya carnosa is a fast-grower. You can prune back long vines if you want to keep it compact. The best time to prune is early spring, before Hoyas start their most vigorous time of growth
