Overview

This flowering climber belongs to the Apocynaceae family and is native to the Philippines. Named after Thomas Hoy who was a gardener to the Duke of Northumberland, Hoya Pubicalyx is a gorgeous variegated plant with lovely silver dappled foliage, which can be trained to climb or allowed to hang as a trailing plant in hanging baskets or terrestrial pots.

With green foliage and dusty pink flowers with a sweet fragrance especially noticeable at night, Hoya Pubicalyx fills your home with elegance and beauty and is a must-have staple for your household. 

Hoya plants have different growth rates depending on the species; Pubicalyx is one of the fastest-growing hoya plants. However, as a tropical plant, the Hoya Pubicalyx does not handle frost well, so it is important to place it in moderate temperatures for optimal growth.

PlantX top tip: When propagating in water, after 3-4cm of roots have developed, transplant the cutting to a potting medium. Otherwise, the roots will adapt to being in the water, and the plant will have water roots that are weaker than soil roots.

Hoya ‘Silver Splash’- Common Problems

Wilted Leaves

Wilted leaves on a Hoya can be a sign of both under and overwatering. 

However, the wilted leaves on an overwatered Hoya will be limp and soft. Whereas wilted leaves on an underwatered Hoya will be dry and brittle. Water the plant only when the top layer of soil feels dry with soft water (rainwater or filtered water). It is also suggested to plant it in a pot with good drainage, to allow the soil to drain excess water.

Silver marks on leaves turning pink

The silver marks on the leaves turn a pinkish silver colour when exposed to more light. This is an indication that you should move your plant to a shadier area with indirect sunlight.

White spots on the leaves

These are hard water spots, formed due to a buildup of mineral salts. To remove them, use 1 teaspoon of white or red vinegar with a pint of warm water to remove water spots from the leaves. Dip a small piece of cloth in the solution and rub the leaves gently in a circular motion. Rinse with clean water and dry the leaves using another cloth.

No blooms on the Hoya plant

Light deprivation is the most prevalent cause of no blooms in Hoya Pubicalyx. Always check to see if the plant is getting enough light. Changing the plant's location or moving it might also prevent it from flowering. Moving the plant will agitate it, causing the buds to fall off before they bloom.

Common Pests: Mealybugs, Aphids, White-flies, Root-rot nematode

FAQs - Frequently Asked Questions

How to train Hoya plants to grow along a path?

These vine plants may be trained to grow along any route, climbing pots, trees, and any wall in your house when they are young. In the centre of the container, place bamboo or another vertical support and attach the plant to it using twine or threads.

Should I mist my Hoya plant?

Misting is fine to increase the humidity and to clean the leaves, but it should be done in moderation to avoid root rot due to overwatering.

When should I water my Hoya plant?

Water with room-temperature water, spring through summer only when the top layer of the soil feels dry, and let it dry between watering.
