Specifications
Hoya kerrii 'Starter'
Many plants have heart-shaped leaves, but few are as perfect as those of Hoya kerii. This climbing plant has a thick single stem on which heart-shaped leaves grow in pairs. It grows fairly quickly into a plant of attractive proportions. In due course, it will become a long vine studded with hearts.

Product info

Hoya kerrii comes originally from south-east Asia. Its heart-shaped leaves resemble those of a succulent, such is their thickness. Its white flowers, growing in clusters, are star-shaped as are the red flower centres. Both flowers and leaves are structurally robust. The Hoya kerrii ‘Starter’ we supply is a modest size but it will grow into a climber of around 4 metres.

Plant care

Of all the plants available, Hoya Kerri is one of the easiest to grow. It needs to be positioned where it can enjoy five hours of sunlight per day. It is virtually impossible to give it too little water since it can easily survive if it is only watered once a month. The temperature needs to be above and less than 30⁰ C , preferably in the region of 23⁰ C. During the daytime, humidity needs to be around 50% and slightly higher at night. The best substrate is a mixture of peat and normal potting compost. Both these items are available in the “Plant accessories” section. Always allow the potting compound to dry out before giving the plant water. Fertilise as normal. Do not cut off old flowers as new ones will develop in the same place. However, old leaves can be removed.
