I got a hoya latifolia . It's huge for its price about 6 nodes . Thick leaves I just love it. Now I need some help keeping her alive.

I got a hoya pantaphebia . Large beautiful leaves there are two rooted cuttings in one pot .

And the final is hoya Nicholsoniea. I just love these leaves

I'll post some pics later

Any help would be great

H latifolia is easy....lots of flowers in multiple umbrels, tho they only last a day or so. H pentaphelbia ( note spelling ) not sure. I have one growing well, but no flowers yet..gets no special treatment and does well. H nicholsoniae loves a bit of sun to keep the leaves burnished..very easy Hoya. Steve......note....... Hoya with a Capital, species with a lower, H. nicholsoniae...Botanically correct, good habit to get into.

It's all about choices.
H. nicholsoniae - dunno if this is the one also known as H. pottsii. If it is...should be grown warm, high light and dry in the winter...from about now to Feb.

The problem with giving advice to grow a specific hoya is often difficult. Determinations are often wrong and, for instance, H. pentaphlebia could be another species...and while most hoyas are grown the could made a difference.
Leap. The net will appear.
