Hoya pachylclada 'New Moon' Detail

Light Requirements:

  • Hoya pachylclada 'New Moon' typically prefers a few hours of direct morning or evening sun. Even though they can endure it, these lighting conditions don't encourage bloom.
  • For better growth, place the plant where the foliage won't be directly exposed to the sun. They must be shielded from the scorching afternoon sun.
  • To give the plant the light it requires, place it in an east or west-facing window.
  • Many plant lovers prefer to place their plants near windows rather than right next to them.

Temperature Requirements:

  • Hoya pachylclada 'New Moon' prefers temperatures between 70 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit (21 and 26 degrees Celsius), but can tolerate temperatures up to 90 degrees Fahrenheit (32 degrees Celsius).
  • Keep in mind, however, that frost will kill these plants. Thus, if you live in a place where winters are particularly chilly, you should bring the plant inside. During the warm summer months, you can place the plant outside.
  • In cold conditions, plant growth slows and stops altogether. The situation becomes more dire as the temperature drops below freezing.
  • Heat pads, frost blankets, and insulating plastics can be used to keep the cold out when the temperature goes haywire in the winter.
  • Don't put the plant near any draughty windows or vents in the winter.

Humidity Requirements:

  • Hoya pachylclada 'New Moon' is most likely to flower in humid conditions that average between 60 and 75 percent.
  • When humidity drops below 30%, however, it's time to start worrying about your plant's well-being.
  • The plant's growth will be slowed, and it may even stop, due to the low humidity conditions invited by winter months and drier summer days.
  • A hygrometer is an inexpensive tool for measuring relative humidity. In the event that the humidity is too low, a humidifier can be purchased to increase or sustain the desired level.
  • In contrast, a pebble tray can be placed near the plant and serves the same purpose for much less money.
  •  Spray the plant down with water from a bottle a few times a week.

Watering Requirements:

  • Hoya pachylclada 'New Moon' is a succulent, so it requires little water to survive. These plants can endure prolonged dry spells because of the moisture that their leaves retain.
  • However, this does not imply that you should completely stop watering your plants. It would generally be best to water Hoya pachylclada 'New Moon' every 7 to 10 days, and to stop during the winter.
  • It can be challenging to take care of this plant because it thrives in moist soil in the summer but can succumb quickly to the effects of overwatering.
  • If your plant is not fully established, you may need to water it more.

Soil Requirements:

  • There is still a chance of stressing out your plant even if you give it everything it needs if you don't grow it in good soil.
  • Hoya pachylclada 'New Moon' thrives in loamy, sandy, or loamy loam that retains some moisture but allows water to drain away.
  • They flourish in soils with a pH between 6.1 and 7.5.
  • You can make your own potting mix at home that will address the plants needs
  • Coco coir and compost added to regular potting soil.
  • Half peat moss, a half perlite, a tenth pine bark.
  • Add 1 part perlite to 2 parts potting soil.
  • It's also possible to use a commercial soil mixture.

Fertilizing Requirements:

  • Natural manure is the most beneficial fertiliser for this plant. Because of their slow release mechanism, these fertilisers prove to be effective.
  • Fertilize your Hoya pachylclada 'New Moon' every two weeks during the growing season, but stop fertilising altogether during the winter.
  • Only in the spring and summer, when the plant has time to recover from the stress of fertilizers, is it safe to fertilise these plants.
  • A fertiliser with an NPK ratio of 5-10-5 will stimulate flowering and leaf growth in your plant. Fertilizer with a high phosphorus content but low nitrogen levels is required.
