Hoya kerrii - Sweetheart Hoya

$ 18.00

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.

Hoya kerrii is semi-succulent, with thick waxy leaves, flowers and stems. Drought tolerant, place your Sweetheart Hoya where it will receive bright indirect light, and allow to dry out between waterings .

Ships in a 4" or a 6" plastic nursery pot. Leaves measure 3-4" long and 2-3" wide. Each 4" specimen has 2-3 leaves with some vine development, and each 6" specimen has multiple vining stems, approximately 5-8" in length. Some natural variation in size and appearance may occur.

*Limited quantity available. Product photo shows a 6" specimen. Hand thrown ceramic planter sold separately. Includes detailed care instructions.


Items in our Rare Flora collection require special pre-shipping preparation, and ship within 3-5 business days. You'll receive a shipping notification email with tracking when your order ships. Box warmer included at no additional charge as necessary during cold months.

International shipping unavailable due to customs restrictions. [More Info]

Love my Sweetheart Hoya

The sweetheart Hoya came all carefully packaged to Hawaii! And it has survived and is thriving since Dec 2018 :) I would take a photo of if but don't know how to upload it :-0 (not tech savvy). Am going on to the website again to see if I can get another hoya, because I had such a great experience with the staff and the plant. Highly recommend getting a Hoya plant from this place!!
