Plant Care Tips: Hoya ‘Sheperdii’

  • Light: Prefers bright, indirect light. Can tolerate partial shade. Try placing in direct sunlight for a few hours each day, but do not leave for too long as this can scorch your plant’s leaves. 
  • Water: Wait for the top few centimetres of soil to dry out before watering. 
  • Humidity: Like any tropical plant, the Hoya loves humid environments. Although it can tolerate average humidity levels, it will thrive in higher humidity. We recommend keeping it in the bathroom or kitchen and misting the leaves regularly. 
  • Temperature: Keep at temperatures of 10-24°C. Avoid positioning near cold draughts and heat sources. 
  • Soil: Use a well-draining potting mix. 
  • Fertilizer: Feed once or twice a month during the growing season (spring to summer.) We recommend using a fertilizer that is rich in potassium, nitrogen, and phosphorus. 
  • Propagation: The Hoya can be propagated with stem cuttings or seeds. 

Pets: Slightly toxic. Keep away from pets and children. 

Hoya ‘Sheperdii’ - Common Issues and Questions

The leaves of my Hoya are yellowing. What am I doing wrong?

If your Hoya has yellow leaves, it is probably a sign that it is being overwatered. Make sure that you are only watering your plant when the top few centimetres of soil are dry. You ensure that you are using a well-draining potting mix and that your pot is draining properly.

Why is my Hoya growing really slowly?

You may notice that your Hoya is growing unusually slowly. If you have recently moved your plant, it may be in shock. Hoyas go dormant when placed in a new environment, and often need a few weeks or months to adjust to their surroundings. Be patient and new growth will come! 

Common pests: The Hoya ‘Sheperdii’ is susceptible to mealybugs, scale, thrip, and spider mites. Treat any infestations with insecticidal soap or neem oil.

You should expect to receive your refund within four weeks of giving your package to the return shipper, however, in many cases you will receive a refund more quickly. This time period includes the transit time for us to receive your return from the shipper (5 to 10 business days), the time it takes us to process your return once we receive it (3 to 5 business days), and the time it takes your bank to process our refund request (5 to 10 business days).
