Hoya Compacta Mauna Loa Hanging House Plant 10 cm Pot


Hoya Compacta Mauna Loa, also known as Hindu Rope or Krinkle Kurl, is a stunning and unique houseplant that belongs to the Hoya genus. It is native to Eastern Asia and thrives in warm and tropical climates. The plant is characterized by its thick, waxy, and curly leaves, which give it a rope-like appearance. With proper care, this plant can be a beautiful addition to your indoor garden.

Light: Hoya Compacta Mauna Loa prefers bright but indirect light. It can tolerate some periods of direct sunlight, especially during the morning or late afternoon, but prolonged exposure to intense sunlight can cause leaf burn. Place your plant near a window with filtered light or use sheer curtains to diffuse the sunlight. In low-light conditions, the growth may slow down, and the plant may become leggy.

Temperature: This plant thrives in temperatures between 60-85¬?F (15-29¬?C). It can tolerate slightly lower temperatures down to 55¬?F (13¬?C) during the winter months. Avoid exposing the plant to sudden temperature changes, drafts, or cold air near windows or doors.

Watering: Hoya Compacta Mauna Loa prefers to be kept slightly on the drier side. Allow the top inch of the soil to dry out between waterings. Overwatering can lead to root rot, so it's important to ensure proper drainage. Water the plant thoroughly, allowing the excess water to drain out of the pot. Always use room temperature water to avoid shocking the roots. Reduce watering during the winter, as the plant enters a period of dormancy.

Humidity: This plant enjoys moderate humidity levels, but it can tolerate average indoor humidity. If the air in your home is particularly dry, consider using a humidifier or placing a tray of water near the plant to create a more humid environment.

Soil: Hoya Compacta Mauna Loa prefers a well-draining soil mix that retains some moisture. A mixture of peat moss, perlite, and orchid bark works well. Avoid using heavy soil mixes that retain too much moisture, as it can lead to root rot.

Fertilizer: Feed your Hoya Compacta Mauna Loa during the growing season (spring and summer) with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted to half strength, approximately every two to four weeks. During the dormant season, reduce or stop fertilizing altogether.

Pruning: Pruning can help maintain a compact and bushy shape. You can trim back any leggy or overgrown stems, cutting just above a leaf node. The pruned stems can be propagated to create new plants. Wear gloves and be cautious, as the plant's sap can be slightly toxic and cause irritation.

Propagation: Hoya Compacta Mauna Loa can be propagated easily through stem cuttings. Take a cutting with at least two nodes and place it in a well-draining rooting medium, such as a mix of perlite and peat moss. Keep the cutting in a warm and humid environment until new roots develop, which usually takes a few weeks to a couple of months.

Pests and Diseases: This plant is generally resistant to pests, but it can occasionally attract common houseplant pests like mealybugs or spider mites. Regularly inspect the plant for any signs of infestation, such as webs, yellowing leaves, or sticky residue. If pests are present, isolate the infected plant and treat it with an appropriate insecticide or wipe the leaves with a cotton swab dipped in neem oil.

With proper care and attention, your Hoya Compacta Mauna Loa will thrive and reward you with its unique and beautiful foliage. Enjoy its cascading ropes of leaves and the occasional clusters of fragrant flowers that resemble clusters of porcelain stars.
