The Indian hoya has this characteristic foliage where the leaves are curled up to itself. The waxy leaves makes it look like a plastic plant but it isn't. The flowers, as with most hoyas, are deliciously scented. So with the right care and environment, it may flower for you.
Bright indirect sunlight. Exposure to afternoon sun can burn the leaves, turn them yellow or lead to spotting.
If you are keeping it outside, choose a position with partial shade. Make sure the plant is not exposed to direct sunlight for an extended period of time. Too much sunlight exposure can cause yellowing of the foliage. If you notice any yellowing leaves, move the plant away from direct sunlight
Water only when the kokedama is light and dry. Overwatering causes the roots to rot and it is fairly hard for the plant to recover.
Water every 2 -3 weeks in the warmer months (in summer check weekly especially in warmer days and may need watering weekly) and monthly in winter.
HOW TO WATER?
Submerge the whole ball in a bowl, bucket or sink up to the top of the ball. While it is light and dry, you may need to hold it down until the bubbles disappear. Then let it sit in water for 10 - 15 minutes. Take it out of the water and let drip dry.
FERTILISER, PLANT FOOD, SOIL CONDITIONER
Fertilise monthly in spring and summer to encourage growth and NONE in winter. In the colder months, this plant generally hibernates. Therefore feeding with fertiliser won’t make it do much.
Soil conditioners such as Seasol, is also good to use during the growth season. Therefore, using it fortnightly when you water the kokedama is also good it.
These care instructions serve as a guide only. The conditions in every home is different such as light, humidity, draft, heat, etc. and you know your home better than anyone else. These all affect the health and condition of your kokedama. We advise that you do a little bit of research prior to purchasing your kokedama.
