How to Care for a Hoya Krimson Queen Plant
Light: Hoya Krimson Queen thrive in medium to bright, indirect sunlight. Be aware that they are not suited to low light or direct sunlight - which may scorch their leaves. They love the heat of the sun more than anything.
Water: We recommend allowing the top 2 inches of soil to dry out between waterings to prevent overwatering and root rot. Wait until the hoya leaves pucker slightly before watering again. All hoyas should be potted in planters with drainage. They are sensitive to too much water, so use a well draining soil with plenty of pumice or perlite
Humidity: Average house humidity is great for hoya's. They love a mist, or a humid bathroom from time to time.

Watering a Hoya is simple, as it only needs water once or twice a week. If you are going on vacation you can leave it alone for a week and it will be just fine. The water it stores in it's leaves will be used, and they will go from a plump leaf to a thinner leaf, letting you know it's time for more water.
