The Hoya ‘Sunrise’ is a beautiful plant that blushes red in adequate sunlight. This plant is an excellent choice for hanging baskets because of its characteristic trailing and vining growth habit. This plant is sometimes hard to find due to its continuing popularity. It has beautiful teardrop-shaped leaves with reddish veins. The Sunrise Hoya can be trained to grow its vines where you want them to by staking with bamboo. 

Best Locations For Growing Sunrise Hoya 

Grow this plant in any room receiving adequate indirect sunlight for at least six hours daily. Try to keep your hoya in a location with high humidity, preferably 60-80%. If you live in a dry climate, it is best to occasionally mist your plant (avoid water build-up on leaves) or use a humidity tray. 

Sunrise Hoya Sunlight Requirements

In order for Sunrise Hoya to thrive, provide it with plenty of bright, indirect sunlight. Two or three feet away from a south-facing window, or near an east- or west-facing window is ideal. Hoya Sunrise prefers to get bright dappled sunlight for at least four to six hours per day. For example, consider hanging your plant behind sheer curtains on a south-facing window. Direct sunlight may scorch the leaves. 

Sunrise Hoya Care

The best time of year to prune your plant is in early spring. Take care that you don’t accidentally snip off a peduncle where the flowers grow year after year. The perfect soil for growing the Hoya Sunrise in would be a 50/50 blend of a high-quality succulent soil and orchid soil. Airy, well-draining mixes are best for hoya plants, and they grow best in a high-humidity environment. 

Watering Sunrise Hoya 

Before watering this plant, make sure that the soil has completely dried out. Hoyas are susceptible to root rot when overwatered. As a general rule, water biweekly during the spring and summer but don’t water much during the winter months when growth slows.

Feeding Sunrise Hoya 

Sunrise Hoyas benefit from monthly feeding with a nitrogen-rich fertilizer. Hoyas need to be fertilized regularly throughout spring and summer. Nitrogen-rich fertilizers encourage foliage growth, whereas phosphorus-rich fertilizers are best when you see flower buds emerge.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

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 Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

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. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

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.
