We'll be honest - this whole adulting thing can leave us feeling a little tied up. It starts with utility bills and laundry day and suddenly you're frequenting home improvement stores on Saturday and you're stumped at how to navigate Snapchat (that's still what the cool kids are doing, right?). While there's not much we can do for your to-do list (or Snapchat for that matter, but let us know if you figure it out), we do have a few tips for simplifying the rest. What's at the top of our list? A set it and forget it house plant. Meet Tangled - a knotted, variegated variety of Hoya plant called Hindu Rope. With care guidelines similar to a succulent, this low maintenance lady is the perfect plant pal for the overcommitted. Read on below for our top tips to help her live her best life. And with just a few care guidelines, we're sure the only thing that will end up in knots is her, not you.
This tangled beauty thrives in medium to high light. How do you find what's right We recommend finding her a home that is no closer than three feet from your brightest window. Pro Tip: windows can magnify sunlight by up to three times, so unless you want to bake her, take this last part to heart! The Hoya plant prefers sunnier climates so in the winter months, do your best to chase that daylight.
The Hoya plant family has similar care to succulents (in fact, some varieties are succulents themselves!). Make like a cacti and keep your new friend on the dry side. Let her soil completely dry out between waterings. Pro Tip: get on a H2O schedule!We recommend setting your calendar and watering her once a week - about 1/4 cup should do the trick! Ease up your watering in winter months - cold and darker conditions set plants into hibernation mode so she'll need less water.
One last pro tip? Give your new Hoya plant a little love this winter and you'll be rewarded come spring! Happy, mature Hoyas create stunning bloom clusters. What does Hoya love look like? We recommend a little fertilizer (a special soil blend from your garden store should do the trick - ask the staff for help) and trading up her vessel to maximize drainage should do the trick!
