Hoya from seeds springs up in a fairly short time, if you maintain a moist microclimate, and the flower is light and warm enough.After your crops gain strength, they can be transplanted into a separate pot.


In order to propagate hoiu by cutting, it is necessary to cut off the shoots containing at least 2 leaves, then root them in water and plant them in the soil of sand and peat in the same proportions.
