Hoyas are in the milkweed family and have a thick, waxy flower that is very similar to their butterfly-attracting cousins. Hoya Bella is a tropical vining plant native to Australia and Asia. The highly scented, waxy flowers bloom from May until September, while the foliage remains  a medium-green color year round. Of the 900 varieties and cultivars of Hoya, 'Bella' is one of the easiest for new gardeners to grow.

Best Locations For Growing Hoya Bella

Bella looks best either left to sprawl out of a hanging basket or trained to grow vertically on a trellis or other support. Hoya makes a great patio or deck plant in the summer. While in full bloom, they attract hummingbirds and butterflies with their large amounts of nectar.

Hoya Bella Sunlight Requirements

Indoors, Hoya prefers bright, all-day sun exposure if possible. South-facing windows are excellent for this. The second and third choices would be an east-facing or west-facing window with at least 4 hours of direct sun early or late in the day. Outdoors, Hoya will need to be shielded from the intensity of the midday or late-day sun. Dappled shade or bright shade will help to keep the foliage deep green.

Hoya Bella Care

Hoya Bella will bloom better when it is slightly rootbound. Pot your hoya in a mix of 1 part potting soil and 1 part fine orchid bark to provide fast drainage and rich nutrients. Do not be tempted to deadhead Hoya after the first flush of blooms. Much like an Orchid, another flower may form farther down on the original bloom stem. Deadheading and pruning back of any dead foliage should be done just before bringing the plant indoors for the fall. Remember to pay attention to nighttime temperatures and bring Hoya Bella in the house when the temperatures at night fall below 50 degrees F.

Watering Hoya Bella

Hoyas like to have their soil dry out in between waterings. Once a week, check to see if the top 2-3 inches of soil are dry. Water thoroughly and discard any standing water in the saucer after 10-15 minutes. Hoya likes humidity levels higher than 40% and appreciates being misted with distilled water every 2-3 days or having a cool-mist humidifier nearby.

Feeding Hoya Bella

A balanced, general houseplant fertilizer is fine for Hoya. Use a liquid formulation and apply it monthly at half the manufacturer’s recommended amount. Fertilizing is not necessary during the winter when Hoya slows growth.

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs.

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.


If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!


Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
