The Variegated Hoya Wayetti is a popular and attractive houseplant known for its long, cascading vines and beautiful, variegated foliage. Here are some tips to help you care for your Variegated Hoya Wayetti:

  1. Light: Hoya Wayetti enjoys bright, indirect light. Avoid placing it in direct sunlight, which can scorch its leaves.

  2. Water: This plant prefers to dry out between watering. Once the top half of the soil feels dry to the touch, water thoroughly, ensuring that the water drains out of the bottom of the pot. Hoya plants are susceptible to root rot, so avoid overwatering.

  3. Humidity: Hoyas generally do well in average home humidity but would appreciate higher humidity. However, the variegated version can tolerate a bit less humidity than its non-variegated counterpart.

  4. Soil: Use a well-draining soil mix. An orchid potting mix, or a mix of regular potting soil with perlite or coarse sand, works well.

  5. Temperature: The Variegated Hoya Wayetti prefers warm temperatures. Ideal daytime temperatures range from 65°F to 80°F (18°C to 27°C), and nighttime temperatures should not drop below 50°F (10°C).

  6. Fertilizer: Fertilize during the growing season (spring and summer) with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer diluted to half strength every 4 weeks. Do not fertilize during the fall and winter.

  7. Pruning: You can prune your Hoya to control its size and shape. Make your cuts just above a node (the point where a leaf joins the stem). However, remember that flowers on Hoya plants bloom from spurs on old growth, so avoid heavy pruning if you want to encourage flowering.

  8. Repotting: Repot your Hoya Wayetti when it becomes root-bound, which is typically every 2-3 years. Be sure to use a pot with good drainage to prevent waterlogging.

  9. Propagation: Hoyas are commonly propagated by stem cuttings. Choose a stem with 2-3 nodes and let the cut end dry out for a day before planting in a well-draining potting mix.

  10. Pest Control: Regularly inspect your Hoya for signs of pests such as mealybugs and aphids. If found, treat with insecticidal soap or neem oil.

Remember to adjust these care guidelines based on the specific conditions in your home and monitor your plant's health regularly, as individual needs may vary.
