Hoya Australis Lisa, a striking cultivar of Hoya Australis, is a vining, tropical plant known for its variegated leaves featuring shades of green, cream, and pink. This plant is native to Australia and is celebrated for its stunning foliage and clusters of fragrant, star-shaped flowers. Hoya Australis Lisa is an excellent choice for hanging baskets or as a climbing plant with proper support.

Follow these care instructions to keep your Hoya Australis Lisa healthy and thriving:

  1. Light: Place your Hoya Australis Lisa in a location with bright, indirect light. It can tolerate some direct morning sunlight, but avoid harsh afternoon sun, as it can scorch the leaves. A spot near an east or west-facing window is ideal.

  2. Water: Keep the soil consistently moist but not soggy. Water your Hoya Australis Lisa when the top 1-2 inches of soil feel dry to the touch. Water thoroughly until it drains from the bottom of the pot, and then allow the excess water to drain completely. Avoid overwatering, as this can lead to root rot.

  3. Humidity: Hoya Australis Lisa prefers high humidity levels. To increase humidity, you can place a tray filled with water and pebbles underneath the pot, mist the leaves regularly, or use a humidifier. A humidity level of 50% or higher is ideal for these plants.

  4. Temperature: Maintain a temperature range of 60-75°F (15-24°C) for optimal growth. Hoya Australis Lisa can tolerate a range of temperatures but avoid sudden temperature changes and keep the plant away from drafts or cold windows.

  5. Fertilizer: Feed your Hoya Australis Lisa with a balanced liquid fertilizer every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Use a half-strength solution to avoid over-fertilizing. Reduce feeding to once every 2-3 months during fall and winter.

  6. Pruning: Prune your Hoya Australis Lisa as needed to maintain its shape and size. Remove any yellow or brown leaves and trim the tips if they become damaged. You can also pinch back the growing tips to encourage bushier growth.

  7. Repotting: Repot your Hoya Australis Lisa every 2-3 years or when the roots outgrow the pot. Choose a well-draining potting mix and a pot that is 1-2 inches larger in diameter than the current one. Be gentle when handling the roots, and water the plant thoroughly after repotting.

  8. Pest control: Keep an eye out for common pests such as spider mites, mealybugs, and scale insects. Treat any infestations with insecticidal soap or neem oil, following the manufacturer's instructions.

Pet-friendly or toxic to pets?

According to the ASPCA, Hoya plants, including Hoya Australis Lisa, are non-toxic to cats and dogs. This plant is considered pet-friendly, making it a suitable choice for households with pets that may be prone to chewing on plants. However, it's always best to discourage your pets from chewing on plants, as even non-toxic plants can cause mild digestive upset if ingested in large quantities. If you have concerns about your pet's health, contact your veterinarian.
