Hoya griffithii (splashy leaves)

Hoya Griffithi (Splashy Leaves)

Hoya Griffithi Splash is a hoya that is native to the Himalayas, leading many growers to speculate that cultivating it as a houseplant would require lower temperatures. However, this hoya does not do well with cold temperatures and thrives well in a median temperature range of 15-28 degrees C. 

Hoya Griffithi features long, shiny leaves that curl slightly at the margins. The leaves are emerald green in color, and feature some prominent venation patterns. In the case of the splashy leaf variant, the leaves feature silvery variegation, and when stressed by the sun, these leaves take on a slightly reddish colour. 

The flowers are cup-shaped and large, around 3cm (1 3/16″) wide. The flowers have white corollas and a white corona with red splashes on the back of the petals. There are up to 10 flowers per umbel, and they are strongly scented.

How to care for

Hoya Griffithi (splashy leaves)?

These hoyas are strong growers and are pretty hardy once established. They do well in bright, indirect light and have moderate humidity requirements. All hoyas are susceptible to root rot; it is, therefore, imperative that you water your hoya only when dry.


  • Low watering requirements
  • Well-draining loose soil
  • 15-28 degrees C temperature range. 
  • Bright, indirect light

Hoya Krohniana Black Care Detail

Light Requirements:

  • Hoya Griffithi's splashy leaves are no different from other hoyas in that it thrives in strong indirect light.
  • To encourage your hoya to develop quickly and healthily, choose a south-facing window and ensure it gets at least 6 hours of sunshine per day.
  • Without sufficient light, a hoya’s development may become stunted, and its ability to bloom may suffer to the point where it produces no flowers at all.
  • You can use artificial yellow light to maintain growth levels and ensure blooming on cloudy days.

Temperature Requirements:

  • Despite Hoya Griffithi being from the Himalayas, it thrives in a median temperature range of 15-28 degrees C.
  • However, this hoya can die if exposed to temperatures below 15 degrees C. 
  • Heating mats are ideal if your home does not have internal temperature regulation. You can also use heat lamps or place your hoya in the bathroom or the kitchen for the duration of the cold season.

Humidity Requirements:

  • Although they thrive in high humidity levels, Hoya Griffthi can grow best in environments with a relative humidity of between 40 and 60 percent.
  • Low humidity, however, results in leaf yellowing, drooping, falling, and curling.
  • The leaves of your indoor plants should be misted every three to four days. Naturally occurring rain serves to raise humidity.
  • Pebble trays can also aid with humidity levels. To artificially boost humidity, you can also use an electric humidifier. You might also put your plant in a moist location, such the kitchen or bathroom.

Watering Requirements:

  • Hoyas don’t need a lot of moisture because of the way their enormous leaves absorb it; if they get too much water, their roots decay.
  • As much as possible, keep the soil in good condition. Before watering, make sure the top 25–30% of the soil has dried out. The most crucial next step is to give them a thorough soak in water.
  • Water your Hoya Griffith once every eight to ten days during the summer. Reduce the rate in half in the winter because the soil takes longer to dry out.

Soil Requirements:

  • Hoyas favour environments with porous, well-draining soil. Hoya Coricea thrives in a pH range of 6.1 to 7.5, which ranges from mildly acidic to neutral.
  • Cactus potting mixes would be beneficial for Hoya Griffithi as well. The roots won’t receive enough oxygen in simple potting soil; hence it is not recommended.
  • To create a wonderful, loose soil mixture, use 1 part potting soil, 1 part peat moss, and 2 parts perlite.
