String Bean Hoya is a popular flowering tree that originates from South America. The tree grows to around 25 feet tall, and has a spread of around 15 feet. The leaves are green and deciduous, and the flowers are yellow and small. The fruit is a small string bean, which is edible. The tree was first discovered in Brazil in the 16th century, and was brought to Europe in the 18th century. It was first cultivated in France, but it soon became popular throughout Europe. The string bean hoya was first brought to North America in the early 1800s, and has been growing in popularity ever since. There are now populations of the string bean hoya found in Arizona, California, Florida, New York, Texas, and other parts of North America.
Hoya plants are generally considered non-toxic to humans and pets, making them safer options for households with animals or small children.
Light: They thrive in bright, indirect light. Some varieties can tolerate a bit of direct sunlight, especially morning sunlight, but harsh sun can damage the leaves. Watering: Allow the soil to dry out partially between waterings. Hoya plants prefer well-draining soil and are sensitive to overwatering. Temperature: They generally prefer average room temperatures between 60-80°F (15-27°C) and can tolerate slightly cooler temperatures. Humidity: Hoya plants can handle normal indoor humidity levels, but they appreciate slightly higher humidity. Misting can be beneficial, especially in drier environments. Maintenance: Pruning: Prune to control the plant's size or encourage branching and fuller growth. Repotting: Repot when the plant becomes root-bound, usually every 1-2 years, using a well-draining potting mix. Support: Some Hoya varieties are climbing vines that benefit from supports like trellises or stakes.
Different Species and Cultivars: There's a wide variety of Hoya species and cultivars available. Some popular ones include Hoya carnosa, Hoya kerrii (Heart-leaf Hoya), Hoya linearis, Hoya obovata, and Hoya pubicalyx.
Foliage: Hoya plants feature thick, succulent-like leaves that are often glossy and have various shapes and sizes, depending on the species or variety. Some have variegated foliage, adding to their ornamental value. Flowers: Hoya plants produce clusters of star-shaped flowers that are waxy and fragrant. These blooms can come in different colors, such as white, pink, red, or yellow, depending on the species.
