Harold, a Hoya Linearis, is an unusual plant with needle-like foliage that is long and thin. Originating from Eastern Asia and Australia this plant is perfect for creating that jungle vibe both as a hanger and trailer. Given the right conditions, you’ll be rewarded with nuggets of sweet-scented cream flowers.
Harold is super easy to care for and if you're looking for a project you could always try propagating him. All you need to do is trim his stems and place the cuttings into a pot of soil - after a few weeks or months, you'll have a fully-fledged plant!
Harold, Hoya Linearis
Harold prefers bright indirect light without prolonged exposure to direct sun - a touch of morning sunlight however would be welcomed.
If you’re not sure what level of light you have, check the shadows cast by your plant:
- Minimal shadow = lower light
- Half shadow = indirect light
- Full shadow = direct sun
