Hoya Bella (English)

zelf gezaaide Hoya Bella

 Are you ready? Allright, let's go! 

You can plant a hoya in 2 ways: by using soil or moss. We'll explain both methods to you. Here we go! 

I'm sowing in soil

    1. Fill your favourite plastic, glass or metal planter with well draining soil. We prefer soil with coco peat fibre, but you can also use standard soil and add some sand and perlite.

    2. Are you using a bigger planter? Great, because hoya seeds love sprouting together.

    3. Moisten the soil. From now on, this is your new life goal. Get it tattooed, paint it on your wall, but never ever forget it.

    4. Put the seeds on top of the soil and cover them with a layer of dry soil.

    5. Now cover your planter. You can use glass, a glass bell, plastic, a plastic lid,  your cat or - if you can't find anything else - cling film or a plastic bag.

    6. Put your freshly sown babies in a warm and bright spot. And check them every day. At least three times. You never know...

I'm using moss

  1. Form a little ball of the moss and pit the seeds in there. 

  2. Put your ball in a glass or plastic jar and make sure you can close it. You can re-use your jar of jam or pesto, use a plastic container or a bottle. As long as the sun can reach it and the moss stays moist, you're good!  

  3. Put your seeds in a warm and bright spot.

Is it almost readyyyy???

Now the hard part has started: WAITING. It can take up to 3 months for the seeds to start sprouting. 

Yep, that's a loooong time. Sorry. But in the meanwhile, you can give your granny a call, bake 17 cakes or check out our blogs
