Hoya linearis is a beautiful trailing plant with thin, elongated leaves and clusters of small, star-shaped flowers. Here are some care tips for Hoya linearis:

1. Light: Hoya linearis prefers bright, indirect light. Direct sunlight can scorch the leaves, so it's best to place the plant near a window that receives filtered light.

2. Water: Hoya linearis prefers to dry out slightly between waterings. Water the plant when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch, but avoid overwatering as it can lead to root rot. It's important to use room temperature or slightly warm water to avoid shocking the plant.

3. Soil: Hoya linearis prefers well-draining soil that's a mix of peat moss, perlite, and sand. A good potting mix should be porous and allow for good drainage.

4. Temperature: Hoya linearis prefers temperatures between 60-80°F (16-27°C). They can tolerate cooler temperatures but should be protected from frost and extreme heat.

5. Humidity: Hoya linearis prefers moderate to high humidity levels. They can benefit from occasional misting or placing a tray of water near the plant to increase humidity.

6. Fertilizer: Feed your Hoya linearis plant every 2-4 weeks during the growing season with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer.

7. Pruning: Hoya linearis can benefit from occasional pruning to remove any yellow or damaged leaves or to control the plant's size and shape.

8. Propagation: Hoya linearis can be propagated through stem cuttings. Cut a stem from the plant just below a node, remove the lower leaves, and place the cutting in water or soil to root.

9. Pests: Hoya linearis plants can be susceptible to spider mites, mealybugs, and scale insects. Check the plant regularly and take action if you notice any signs of infestation.

With proper care, Hoya linearis plants can live for many years and make attractive additions to any home or office.
