Hoya macrophylla, also known as White Margin Hoya, is a unique plant that is tolerant of lower light conditions and can be grown in both a pot and a trellis outdoors. This plant does best in USDA Zones 9-11. It can tolerate temperatures down to 30SF for short time. It is important to ensure good drainage to avoid over-watering and root rot, and adding perlite to the soil can help with this. Fertilize every few weeks during the growing season with a high-quality, water soluble fertilizer and keep the soil evenly moist. During the winter months, it is best to keep the plant drier with waterings about once every two weeks. Hoya macrophylla produces clusters of small, pink and white flowers in late spring or early summer.

Hoya macrophylla has attractive variegated leaves and is a frequent bloomer. It has large, textured leaves with creamy white and pink margins and new leaves that emerge pink from vining tendrils. It is easy to grow with leaves around 5 inches long and is known for its waxy leaves, stems, and flowers.

Hoya macrophylla is a long-lived and easy to maintain houseplant with large waxy leaves and a unique coloring of white, yellow, or pink stripes amid deep green shades. It is known for its low-maintenance and visual appeal and produces fragrant flowers at night that are odorless during the day. It grows best in hot and arid climates with infrequent rains and does best when it can dry out completely before being watered.
