Nutrients for Hoya Plant Feeding
Any food with a 2:1:2 or 3:1:2 is sufficient to keep the plant in good health. For wax plants that are flowering, however, switch to a 5:10:3 with a high phosphorus number to encourage blooming. Use a high phosphate fertilizer for 2 months prior to the plant's normal blooming time.
How can I make my Hoya bloom?
When a wax plant won't flower, the easiest thing to do is change some of its conditions and see if that makes a difference. Move the plant to a brighter window and expose it to more candles of daylight. Water deeply but infrequently. Also, mist your plant often and try to keep humidity to at least 40 percent.
