Accordingly, how does a heart succulent grow?
This heart-shaped succulent is actually a vining plant — when it grows up. Slow-growing, it will take a few years to become a long vine studded with hearts. Mature vining plants will grow clusters of flowers in summer, when given plenty of sunlight.
Likewise, will my Hoya heart grow?
Hoya kerrii leaves growing by themselves only have a small chance of producing new shoots, and this would normally be after several years. If you do happen to have a non grower then the speed of growth will obviously be zero.
How big do heart succulents get?
Mature plants can reach lengths of up to 13 feet (4 m.). During the summer, clusters of white, burgundy-centered blooms provide a bold contrast to the deep green or variegated leaves. One mature plant can display up to 25 blooms.
When should I repot my heart Hoya?
The best time to repot houseplants—including lucky-heart hoyas—is in the spring, when growth is vigorous. Usually, Hoya kerrii plants need repotting every few years. A single leaf heart-shaped hoya never needs repotting because the leaf only grows a root system.
How do you propagate a succulent heart plant?
Hoya Kerrii is relatively easy to propagate using vine cuttings.
- Select a 2? to 3? section of vine that contains one or two leaves.

- Let the cuttings dry out on an open surface for a day to facilitate callus formation at the cut ends.
