Description: Hoya Bella, also known as the Miniature Wax Plant, is a delightful and compact tropical vine cherished for its dainty foliage and clusters of fragrant flowers. Belonging to the Apocynaceae family, this evergreen vine is native to the tropical regions of Southeast Asia. Hoya Bella is prized for its small, succulent leaves that grow densely along its trailing stems, creating a lush and charming display. Additionally, its delicate, star-shaped flowers, which bloom in clusters and emit a sweet fragrance, add to its appeal. With its easy-care nature and ability to thrive in indoor environments, Hoya Bella is a popular choice for hanging baskets, trellises, and other decorative arrangements.

🌿 Botanical Name: Hoya bella (Hoya Bella)

💧 Care Level: Easy. Hoya Bella is relatively low-maintenance and can adapt well to a variety of growing conditions.

📏 Size: Hoya Bella typically grows as a compact vine, reaching lengths of 12 to 24 inches (30 to 60 cm) or more when provided with adequate support.

☀️ Light: Place Hoya Bella in bright, indirect light. While it can tolerate some direct sunlight, it prefers filtered sunlight or partial shade to prevent leaf burn.

💧 Water: Allow the soil to dry out slightly between waterings, then water Hoya Bella thoroughly, allowing excess water to drain away. Reduce watering during the winter months when growth slows down.

💦 Humidity: Hoya Bella prefers moderate to high humidity levels. Increase humidity by misting the foliage regularly or placing a humidity tray filled with water and pebbles nearby, especially in dry indoor environments.

🌡️ Temperature: Hoya Bella prefers temperatures between 60°F to 80°F (15°C to 27°C). Protect it from cold drafts and sudden temperature fluctuations, as it is sensitive to extreme conditions.

🌱 Soil: Plant Hoya Bella in well-draining, porous soil that retains some moisture but does not become waterlogged. A mixture of peat moss, perlite, and orchid bark works well.

🌱 Fertilizing: Feed Hoya Bella with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted to half the recommended strength once a month during the growing season (spring and summer). Avoid fertilizing in the winter months when growth slows down.

🔄 Pruning: Prune Hoya Bella as needed to control its size and shape. Remove any dead or damaged foliage and trim back overgrown vines to encourage bushier growth.

🍃 Pests and Diseases: Monitor Hoya Bella for common pests such as aphids, mealybugs, and spider mites. Treat any infestations promptly with insecticidal soap or neem oil. Watch for signs of root rot caused by overwatering, and ensure proper soil drainage to prevent problems.

Propagation: Hoya Bella can be propagated from stem cuttings. Take a 4-6 inch (10-15 cm) long cutting from a healthy stem, remove the lower leaves, and place the cutting in a well-draining propagation medium. Keep the medium moist and provide indirect light until roots develop.
