Beside above, how do you care for a heart succulent plant?
They like to live in bright sun (but can tolerate bright indirect light) in a well-drained pot, and don’t need tons of water. Water every two or three weeks, or when soil is completely dry and the leaves start to wrinkle. You can find a little cutie in equally adorable little pots at places like The Sill.
Just so, how do you care for a Hoya kerrii?
Hoya Kerrii Care Summary
- Provide it with bright, indirect light.
- Allow it to dry out between waterings.
- Provide with additional humidity.
- Use a loose and well-draining potting mix.
- Use a balanced houseplant fertilizer diluted to half-strength, once a month during the growing season (spring and summer)
What does it mean when you find a heart shaped leaf?
If you want to show someone special your love in a symbolic way, you should consider these heart shaped leaves plants. They last longer than flowers and they will continue to bloom and grow their new hearts the same way your love and affection continues to grow and mature over time.
Hoya kerrii, or Hoya Hearts, are tropical succulent vines that are often cultivated and sold as leaf cuttings. They belong to the Dogbane family, Apocynaceae, which includes some notable plants such as Dogbane, Oleander, Plumeria, Periwinkle, Golden Trumpet, and Mandevilla.
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.
Hoya Kerrii is relatively easy to propagate using vine cuttings.
- Select a 2? to 3? section of vine that contains one or two leaves.
- Dab a bit of honey or cinnamon on the cut ends to discourage bacteria.
- Let the cuttings dry out on an open surface for a day to facilitate callus formation at the cut ends.
