Hoya kerrii, also known as the sweetheart wax plant, is a type of Hoya named for its thick, heart-shaped leaves. And easily adaptable and low-maintenance plant, Hoya Sweethearts are typically given as gifts of love -either to yourself or a loved one!
Size: This plant is in a 4'' pot and from the bottom of the pot to the top of the plant measures 6''-8''. Although they're slower growing, Hoya Sweethearts will grow into a small bush of heart-shaped leaves and can mature to strands up to 13 feet long.
Light: This plant prefers to be in indirect light. It can tolerate areas of less light, but never full shade or full sun.
Water: Hoyas store water in their leaves and are fairly drought-tolerant. Water when the soil is completely dry to the touch and then let the excess water drain throughly.
Humidity: This plant doesn't need excess humidity.
Temperature: These do well with common indoor home temperatures of 65-80 F.
Soil: Pothos plants need well-draining potting soil
Fertilizing: This is a young plant with a single leaf so it doesn't need fertilizing at this stage. Hoya Sweethearts aren't heavy feeders, but as it matures, we recommend fertilizing in its main growing season (Spring-Fall), once a month maximum. Do not fertilize in Winter.
Flower: Mature plants will have showy, clustered flowers with a powerful perfume.
Toxicity: Hoya Kerrii are toxic to humans but non-toxic to animals if ingested. We suggest keeping all plants away from fur pals and young children.
