Hoya kerrii - Sweetheart Hoya
Hoya kerrii has perfectly heart-shaped bright green leaves that emerge on vining stems. Aptly nicknamed the Sweetheart Hoya or Heart-leaf Hoya, this slow grower is most commonly sold only as a single rooted leaf around Valentine's Day. We're fortunate enough to have more mature specimens, some already putting out long tendrils from woody bases. Like all Hoyas (aka wax plants), clusters of star-shaped flowers will eventually emerge along the stems. Happy to climb up a trellis or cascade over the sides of its pot, Hoya kerrii is one of those must-have plants for any collector.
• Light: Perfect for bright, indirect light
• Water: Drought tolerant. Water when the top 2" of soil feels dry to the touch
• Considerations: Use a well-draining soil, and select a planter with drainage. Hoya kerrii is a bit more sensitive to cold than other Hoyas. Pet friendly! Read our Hoya journal entry for more care information.
