How to care?

Hoya sp. GPS 7240

Succulent hoyas typically require less care in terms of humidity and water, seeing as their thick leaves store some amount of water. Bright indirect light with warm temperatures and moderate humidity can help your hoya thrive.


  • Less watering
  • Warm temperatures
  • Moderate humidity
  • Well-draining loose soil

Hoya sp. GPS 7240 Detail

Light Requirements:

  • All hoyas prefer bright, indirect light. Hoya sp. GPS 7240 also thrives in bright indirect light; however, most growers do expose them to direct sunlight for a little while so as to induce some sun-stress coloration. 
  • East-facing windows are the best place where you can place your hoya. Do not worry if you don’t have east-facing windows. You can always use curtains or blinds for the ideal light requirements. 
  • Your hoya should get a maximum hour of sunlight every day for optimal growth.

Temperature Requirements:

  • Hoyas thrive in a median temperature of 60-70 degrees F. This temperature range is to be maintained if you want your hoya to grow well.
  • Keep your hoya in the bathroom or the kitchen if temperatures dip. These are the warmest areas in a home. 
  • You can heating pads to maintain the temperature around your hoya as well. 

Humidity Requirements:

Hoya sp. GPS 7240 does not have set humidity requirements. Most of the humidity it needs can be provided through watering. All that said, It likely would enjoy a higher humidity as it is a similar species to H. sigillatis.

Watering Requirements:

  • Always water your hoya sparingly and only when the top two inches of soil are dry. 
  • As a rule of thumb, .8 cups of water every 12 days are sufficient for your hoya. 
  • However, if you see leaves yellowing or wrinkling, increase the amount of water but only gradually.

Soil Requirements:

  • Well-draining loose soil is preferred by hoyas since they are epiphytic plants and do not need soil to grow. 
  • A mix of perlite with coconut bark nixed with regular potting soil will work well for your hoya.
  • Since this hoya is semi-succulent, a cactus soil mix can also work nicely.
