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 col than other Hoyas. Pet friendly!

I was nervous to purchase this because in the past, the best I’ve gotten was an unrooted leaf that’s stuck in soil and never does anything. A mature Hoya kerrii is not easy to come by so I feel really lucky. The plant I received from here was well rooted and has multiple branches and healthy leaves. I transferred it into leca balls for semi hydroponics as soon as I received it and it has been doing really well. I’ve had the plant since early June 2020 and in the 3 months that I’ve had it, I haven’t seen any new leaf growth yet. But the roots are nice and healthy.
My hoya kerri has been on my wish list forever. I can't believe how healthy and lush the plant I got made it through shipping! Pistils is great.
The Hoya Kerri took some time to arrive, but Pistils ensured to let customers know that delivery will take some time. The plant itself arrived in good condition. Im seeing new growth on it, too, which is lovely. I did contact them about specifying the measurement of the pot that they pictured, since they hadn't done that. They updated the info on their website now; it's nice to know they listen to customers. My 4" pot had 3 leaves which is good for the price.
