Description

Hoya Longifolia (Shepherdii) is a long slender, Semi-Succulent Hoya. Typically grown in a hanging basket or on the edge of a shelf to allow the Hoya to trail. Shepherdii does not climb or vine much at all. Shepherdii can grow past 6' in length and can be cut to encourage back-branching and thicker growth near the soil. Shepherdii are easily recognizable by their long slender bean like leafs. 

Hoya Longifolia - Shepherdii leaf style

Sizing

Hoya Shepherdii have long slender foliage that can reach 8" in length but rarely exceed 1/2 of an inch wide and you can expect your Longifolia to grow 6'+ long with proper lighting and fertilizer. 

Care

Hoya Shepherdii is a semi-succulent Hoya, so slightly less water than a typical Carnosa. They like bright light, but prefer around 4 - 6 hours of direct sunlight. Feed your hoya monthly through the grow season to encourage fast growth and flowering. You can grow your shepherdii in a lower light area of your home with the addition of a 26 Watt Grow light

Fertilizer

Hoya prefer a high phosphorus feed to encourage flowering, and we find our All Purpose Fertilizer is a great feed for most Hoya collectors that are trying to encourage flowering an new growth.
