hoya plants are slow growers to begin with and if you’ve got any of their circumstances (growing medium, light, water) off a bit, then their growth will be even slower. hoya’s like very well draining soil and don’t usually like to get too dry… some like to be kept moister than others.
Accordingly, how do you take care of a Hoya kerrii plant?
Correspondingly, will single leaf Hoya kerrii grow?
Those Single Leaf Hoya Kerrii
After looking around on the internet for far too long, I have come to this consensus – you cannot grow a Hoya kerrii with a single leaf. Generally, Hoya are very easy to propagate. Like other plants, they need a node in order to successfully continue to develop into a plant.
How do you know when Hoya kerrii needs water?
I only water my hoya kerrii about once a month, when the soil is 90% dried, or the pot feels super light. When it’s time, I take the plant to the shower and “rain” on it for 30 minutes on and off to ensure that the whole root ball is saturated.
They actually like being pot bound & you’ll get a better bloom if you leave them be for a few years. I hadn’t repotted mine for 3 years & did it because the soil was way down in the pot. And, I didn’t jump up too big in pot size – you can see the difference in the video. … In terms of soil, Hoyas like a nice & rich mix.
Finally, once you have a basic understanding of how most hoyas like to be cared for, then you’ll discover that they are relatively non-fussy houseplants—growing vigorously and flowering consistently year over year.
To increase high humidity, and cleaning the leaves, misting is fine. Do not mist the your Hoya is budding or in flower. In spring Hoyas react favorably to feeding producing vigorous growth.
The Hoya Compacta is native to warm and humid climates; therefore, this plant enjoys higher humidity than the average indoor level. In the right humidity conditions, the waxy leaves will appear glossy and healthy.
Hoyas can definitely benefit from artificial light. Outdoors, diffused light is best and too much direct sun can cause the leaves to fade and yellow. Keeping the light high not only allows the Hoya plant to grow better, it also helps keep the soil from staying too damp.
If your hoya is not growing, it could be due to several factors. For example, you are overwatering, lack a well-drained potting medium, no bright light, low humidity levels, or little airflow. Hoya plants also need healthy roots and the right temperature to grow.
The best way to propagate Hoyas is leaf and stem cuttings because this method is not only easy but also cost efficient.
