Hoya nummularioides - 3.5"

Hoya nummularioides - 3.5"




Why H. nummularioides stand out from other Hoyas:

- smaller, flat blooms

- incredlble number of flowers per plant

- flowers are some of the most fragrant of any Hoya 

- among the most reliable bloomers of all hoyas

- relatively low maintenance

- can grow to be absolutely massive!


Most important things to keep in mind ..

- It needs a lot of light. Bright, indirect light is essential. it is less likely to bloom in low light, though it will tolerate it.

- Good humidity helps. And it needs to stay in moderate to warm temperatures.

- Don't prime the spurs on which the flowers grow even after the blooms have faded, as the plant will continue to bloom out of those same spurs constantly.



This relatively easy to grow plant is perfect for beginners & makes a beautiful, full hanging basket. Unlike many Hoyas that have round clusters resembling a perfect ball shape, this variety blooms as a flat cluster with 20 or less flowers per umbrella. However (!!) you will receive TONS of blooms per plant/stem. While they are on the small side, the flowers are extremely fragrant. this is one of the most fragrant hods out there! H. nummularioides is a fall bloomer & you can see tons of flower clusters on the plant at one time.

INDOORS: Enjoys bright, filtered, indirect, dappled, or diffused light. 

- Bright light: Generally, H. nummurlarioides enjoys medium to bright light the most. This encourages faster growth & more foliage production. 

While it will tolerate low light without any harm, you should only keep it in these conditions if you don't want it to flower.

- Indirect light: This plant cannot take strong or intense light or its leaves will lose their waxy texture & can become sunburned. It cannot tolerate strong or intense light, as well as direct sun, from 10:30 AM to 4:00 PM (when sun rays are strongest). Therefore, avoiding the sun's rays or filtering the light through sheer curtains or a shade cloth is necessary if left under these conditions.

OUTDOORS: partial shade or a filtered spot will work. For example, placing the plant under a tree where the branches & leaves will diffuse the light will suffice.



This plant enjoys temp ranges from 65 to 90 degrees F. You can go up or down from these temperatures, but you will notice the plant's growth will slow down.

The farther away you get from the ideal level, the slower growth will get until the point where growth stops completely.

Fortunately, household temps are ideal, since jumans enjoy temps between 65 & 75 degrees F.



Ideal humidity for this Hoya is 50% to 70%. Here, it is happiest & will grow faster will producing larger foliage.

However (!!) it will have no problem with regular household humidity for the most part thanks to its thick succulent like foliage.

 It is worth noting if the humidity is kept higher (ideally 60& or higher) it will flower more.

Misting or spritzing your plant & the air around it with room temp water increases moisture in the air around the plant. In doing so, it increases humidity. Thus,, keeping the plant healthy. -- but! Make sure to not wet the leaves too much as excess moisture can attract fungus gnats, but also encourage bacterial & fungal infections. 



Low water requirements. In part, because it is an epiphyte. Additionally, its thick, semi succulent leaves also store moisture allowing the plant to tolerate periods of dryness.

That said, like a ll plants, Hoya n. does need water. Therefore, you don't want to let it go hone dry for extended periods of time. While it can withstand some of this, it Wille eventually sustain damage from dehydration if this happens for too long or happens too often.

It is very important that you WAIT UNTIL THE SOIL IS ALMOST COMPLETELY DRY BEFORE WATERING. You can liekwise wait until the soil is almost completely dry before doing so. 

At the very least, wait until the top 1-2" of soil is dry before adding more moisture.

During warmer months, plant will need regular watering as it is actively growing. Similarly, when the weather is warmer there is more sunlight which causes the soil to dry faster.

On the other hand, the opposite is true during winter -- so limiting number of waterings during cooler seasons/months is crucial.



Ideal soil is rich, lightweight, chunky, & well draining soil.

The plants needs these soil characteristics due to its ephiphytic nature. 

Good drainage is very important is it helps get rid of excess moisture. As im sure youve heard time & time again, standing water for extended periods of time in the pot will damage the roots & lead to root rot.

Airy soil is likewise important for epiphytes because in their natural habitat, the plant does not live in soil. Instead it attaches itself to larger trees on which it climbs up. Therefore, its roots get a lot of air circulation. The best way to gie it a similar environment is to use lightweight, chunky soil that provides good aeration.

An example of a beneficial mix is 1 part potting soil, 1 part orchid mix, & 1 part perlite.

You can likewise sub the potting mix with peat moss or cactus soil.




H. nummulariooides produces some of the smallest flowers within the Hoya species. in fact, an entire umbel (which can have as many as 20 flowers) is smaller than 2 fingers. 

Nevertheless, they are beautiful & vibrant. 


You will receive a 3.5" size plant bare root without a pot. Almost all of our plants have 2+ umbrels already!
