Hoya Polyneura 'Fish Tail'

Dhs. 150.00

The Hoya Polyneura is a uniquely shaped hoya with light green leaves with dark green fish-bone veins. It reminds me of the Little Mermaids. With correct care, time and patience, this plant will produce clusters of fragrant, star-shaped, creme/maroon flowers.

Hoyas is an easy-care plant that is well suited to a very bright space with some direct sunlight. Compared to other indoor plants, this Hoya requires less watering, similar to that of succulents. It should be kept compact in a well-draining Hoya mix and re-potted rarely, approximately every 2 years.

For the Hoya Polyneura to produce, let the plant to dry out, which will encourage buds to form. Don't be sad if flowers don't form on your first try! 

Size: The plant is approximately 20cm long and it comes in a plastic nursery pot 12cm.

Care Tips


Be sure to water your Hoya thoroughly, so the entire soil becomes wet. They like to dry out more than most plants, so only water them again once the soil is thoroughly dry. If they do not dry out between waterings, they will rot quite easily. 


Hoyas will appreciate a lightweight and very airy potting mix. A mixture of substrate, perlite and bark.  Epiphytic Hoyas in particular will also do well in spaghnum moss


Bright, direct light

Certain Hoya varieties might begin to redden their leaves due to sun stress, such as Hoya Wayetii Tricolor, for instance. This can be beautiful, but  ou have to be careful not to overdo it light-wise or it will fully burn the plant and permanently damage the chlorophyll in the leaves in the process. 


Most Hoyas will do great in moderate humidity of 40-60%. 

Some of the thinner-leaved varieties might require higher humidity of 60-80% to thrive. They will do especially well in a greenhouse or terrarium environment.


Hoyas like to be rootbound, so we recommend that you do not repot your Hoya all too often. 


Hoyas won’t flower unless it is given the right care and conditions. Light is the most important factor in getting your Hoya to bloom. It will need a location with bright, indirect light, sheltered from direct sun rays. Fertilising your Hoya regularly may encourage the plant to produce flower buds as well.


Hoyas are NOT toxic to humans or animals when ingested.
