Light: Hoya ‘Tricolor’ prefers bright indirect light and can even tolerate some full sun. Morning or evening sun is ideal. Indoors, a sunny window with northern, eastern, or western exposure is a great spot. Avoid intense afternoon sun. This can burn the leaves.
Water: Though Hoya plants can withstand some drought, during the growing season they prefer a more consistent watering schedule. Water regularly during the spring and summer. Allow the soil to dry out at least halfway before watering thoroughly.
Humidity: Hoya plants thrive in high humidity, though they are tolerant of more moderate, indoor humidity levels. Arid spaces can cause dryness and brown tips of leaves, a humidifier or a pebble tray can help this.
