If you’ve ever seen, cared for, or received the Heart Hoya, or Hoya Kerrii plant as a present, you already know she’s also known as the Valentine plant and the Sweetheart Wax plant, not only because she’s shaped like a heart, but also because she touches the heart. Every plant is a little 5 inch heart-shaped leaf that grows into a bushy clump of green hearts when put in a basket.
Fertilizer/ plant feed: Feed the Hoya plant regularly with water-soluble feed diluted to half strength.
Repotting : Because Hoya plants grow slowly, there is no need to repot them on a regular basis.
Propogation : Stem cuttings are the most effective means to propagate the Hoya plant. Cut the tip of one of the vines using pruning shears, leaving a couple of leaves intact. Keep it in water until the roots develop, then move it to a container with suitable potting soil.
1. Why are my Hoya plant’s leaves becoming black?
If you over-water the plant or if the drainage hole in the container is clogged, the root will decay and the leaves will become black.
2. Why are my Hoya leaves falling off?
A Hoya plant’s leaf loss might be caused by overwatering, waterlogging, or poorly draining soil.
3. Why isn’t my Hoya plant blooming?
If the Hoya plant does not receive enough sunshine, it may not blossom or may flower later than usual.
