How to use the Hoya Soil Mix
Using the mix is easy! start with removing as much of the old soil as possible. Gently squeeze the pot while holding it sideways to loosen up the plant. Run the roots under lukewarm tap water to remove the last pieces and bits.
Also, make sure to remove any dead foliage that may still be on the plant using scissors. Now your plant is ready for its fresh Hoya soil. Add a small layer of Hoya mix at the bottom of the pot.
Place the plant in the pot, and slowly add Hoya soil to the sides to fill it up. Make sure that the point where the roots meet the plant is just buried under the Hoya soil.
Lightly pat the Hoya mix down into the pot. Make sure to water the Hoya mix thoroughly after repotting, as this helps settle the mix and roots down.
Why the Hoya mix works.
This hoya mix contains everything your Hoya could be asking for. The added activated carbon helps prevent root-rot-related issues. There is lots of orchid bark & coco husk to support space & aeration for the larger roots. The mix drains relatively quickly as Hoyas prefer to be left to dry between watering.

The original habitat of the Hoya plants
Hoya’s originate from tropical Asia, the Pacific Islands and Australia. They are usually trailing or climbing vines and are epiphytic, meaning they can grow out of the soil on surfaces like trees & rocks. They are comparable to aroid care, except the hoya mix can dry out more often in between watering.
How to care for Hoya plants
Hoya’s thrive on bright, indirect sunlight and can be left to dry for quite a bit. Similar to succulents, you can check to see if a hoya is thirsty by feeling the leaves. If they are not as plump as before they are probably thirsty and can use a drink.
