The Hoya carnosa ‘Argentea Princess‘ will need very little water because its leaves are waxy and the plant itself is succulent.


  • Bright indirect lighting
  • Temperature range 45 to 95 degrees Fahrenheit
  • 70% to 80% relative humidity.
  • loose, well-draining soil
  • low demands for watering

Hoya carnosa 'Argentea Princess' Detail

Light Requirements:

  • The ‘Argentea Princess‘ requires bright light that is mostly indirect or light that has been filtered to cultivate proper growth and variegation. On the other hand, getting some sunlight exposure can be good for you, especially in the winter and spring.
  • During summer days, be sure to protect the Hoya's leaves from direct exposure to harsh light.
  • If you intend to keep your Hoya outside during the warm months, make sure it has access to plenty of shade so it can be protected from the sun's rays.
  • Suspending it near a tree-shaded area is an effective substitute.

Temperature Requirements:

  • Due to their preference for moderate, reasonably consistent temperatures between 60 and 90 degrees F, these H. carnosas make the ideal indoor plant in many climates.
  • Attempt to stay away from extremes both inside and outside. Prolonged exposure to temperatures below 45 °F or above 95 °F can harm the plant.
  • Remember that the ‘Argentea Princess‘ cannot tolerate temperatures below freezing, so on chilly nights, it is best to bring them inside.

Humidity Requirements:

  • Humidity levels of 70% to 80% are ideal for your Hoya carnosa ‘Argentea Princess‘.
  • If you live in a dry climate, keep your ‘Argentea Princess‘ in the bathroom or kitchen to aid in maintaining optimal humidity. 
  • Another method to increase the humidity in the area is to place your plant on a pebble tray. Simply place a tray underneath the pot, add some rocks, and fill it with water. The evaporation of water will help to achieve that objective.
  • Additionally, your plants can be gathered in one location. Their perspiration will cause the humidity to increase. If you are having trouble maintaining humidity levels, use a humidifier.

Watering Requirements:

  • The leaves of the ‘Argentea Princess‘ have a waxy, succulent-like appearance that helps them survive dry spells. They are more prone to damage when they uptake too much water. 
  • Wait until the top three inches of soil have completely dried out before watering the plant. Overwatering can make the soil mix more saturated. Your Argentea Princess will eventually succumb to root rot and die as a direct result.
  • Watering your plant anywhere between once and three times a week is advised. In fact, it is riskier to risk drowning than to risk overwatering.
  • Additionally, throughout the entire year, you should water your plant at a different amount every week. During the summer, when temperatures are higher, you should water your plants more frequently.

  • On the other hand, you should cut back on the frequency in the fall and winter.

Soil Requirements:

  • A well-drained soil is necessary for hoya growth. Since they are epiphytes, the do not need soil to grow in their natural habitat. As a result, the soil mix should be as loose and airy and possible to replicate their natural environment. 
  • Use a chunky-textured potting mix with perlite, peat moss, pumice, and orchid bark as its main ingredients.
  • An excellent ready-to-use substitute is African Violet Potting Mix. Cactus soil mixes can also be a good choice.

Fertilizing Requirements:

  • You don't need to fertilise your hoyas much since they are light feeders. However, if you do, make sure to use an organic fertiliser.
  • You can apply an organic fertiliser twice a month during growing seasons (spring and summer).
  • Fertilizing should be avoided in the winter and fall. Your plant will only grow at certain times, so it will need less fertiliser.
  • When choosing a fertiliser, make sure it contains both potassium and phosphorus.
  • A side effect of synthetic fertilisers could be root burn. As a result, if you choose to use them, fertilising the plants only once a month while they are growing is recommended.
