Specifications, tips and information
Everything you need to know about the Hoya Publicalyx
This Hoya originally grows in Australia and Asia. For this reason, the plant likes a warm, half sunny spot. If you have a spot near a window on the west of your house, you can place this Hoya here perfectly! You can also use the Hoya Publicalyx as a hanging plant to brighten up your home.
The Hoya Publicalyx prefers a place in normal daylight without any direct sunlight. Hoya plants are known for being really easy to care for. However, make sure that you put it in the right place to remain healthy. Place the plant in a light spot, without any direct sunlight. Too much light can cause the leaves to burn. The soil may always be a little moist but it is also important that the plant is not being over watered. This can cause root rot. The Hoya Publicalyx is lightly-toxic when ingested and therefore not completely safe for pets and children.
How do I take care of my Hoya Publicalyx plant?
Place the Hoya Publicalyx plant on a spot in normal daylight. The Hoya plant will not tolerate direct sunlight and will stop the developing of new leaves and colours. The soil may always be a little moist.
We also recommend always feeling the soil with your fingers. If the soil is still very wet after a few days, then you should water less next time to avoid root rot.
What is the best location for my Hoya Publicalyx plant?
The best location for the Hoya Publicalyx plant is on a spot in normal daylight without direct sunlight. Direct sunlight may cause burned leaves and stop the growth of new leaves and their colours.
If the Hoya Publicalyx plant gets too little daylight, it will show you by kind of shrinking and curling up the leaves. If this is the case, we recommend moving the plant to a brighter spot with more daylight. The plant will then recover by itself.
How much water should I give my Hoya Publicalyx plant?
The soil of the plant may always stay a little moist. We also recommend always feeling the soil with your fingers. If the soil is still very wet after a few days, then you should water less next time.
Please keep in mind to keep a close eye on the soil in the beginning to see what the plant needs. Every plant is different and has other needs.
Is the Hoya Publicalyx plant Toxic?
Yes, the Hoya Publicalyx plant is lightly toxic when ingested. Please be careful with pets and children as they take a bite of the leaves. Therefore, place the plant in a child and animal-friendly place.
Common ailments of the Hoya Publicalyx plant
Yellow leaves can be a sign of the plant to tell you it has given too much water. In this case we advise you to give a little less water each time than you did before. Are the leaves yellow on the bottom of the Hoya Publicalyx plant? Then it could just as well be old age of the lower leaves. The lowest leaves are the ones that grew first. So they will also be the one to die first. With the right care, new leaves will grow from the middle instead.
Curly, dry leaves
Curled and dry leaves can be a sign of too little water. In this case, you can feel into the soil with your fingers to see if it is really dry down here. If this is the case, you can water your plants a little more each time you water them.
Is there mould on the potting soil?
Is there mould on the potting soil? No worries, this is actually a good sign! Mould can already be in the potting soil. Potting soil consists of a large part of naturally decomposed material. A warm living room and frequently watering the plant can bring the present mould to life. This may look a little dirty, but it is actually very good for the plant. Why? The plant gets extra nutrients from the mould to continue growing nicely; totally for free!
