About the Heart Hoya

‘Sweetheart”, “Heart” or “Valentine” Hoya (hoya kerrii) is a thick, succulent-like tropical vine that is easily identified by its heart shaped leaves. Hoyas, or “wax plants” named so for its thick, waxy leaves, are relatively easy to care for, pet-safe (BONUS), they live a very long time, have beautiful porcelain-like flower clusters, and grow to extensive sizes and lengths. Native to Southeast Asia, Hoyas are tropical despite their succulent-like leaves.

The Heart Hoya is often seen around Valentine’s Day being sold as a single leaf planted upright in a small pot. Don’t let the single leaf fool you though, these Hoyas will reach lengths of 13 feet and become a mass of green hearts. These vining qualities are best displayed via a hanging basket, a trellis or moss pole, or trailing from a shelf. If you are lucky, your Heart Hoya will grant you a cluster of white blooms with burgundy centers. One mature plant can give you more than 20.

How to Care for your Heart Hoya

SHAPE: These vining qualities are best displayed via a hanging basket, a trellis or moss pole, or trailing from a shelf. A new trend has them growing in trellises that are shaped like hearts, circles, leaves, really any fun shape you can think of! The stems are not bendy so unlike a pothos, you cannot just wind your Heart Hoya around something when you feel like it. You must start from the beginning with it growing on the shaped trellis for best results.

LIGHT: Heart Hoyas are a little flexible with light. Most of mine reside in an east window or away from a window but with bright indirect light. They will survive with medium light but as they are already slow growing, this may result in zero growth.

HUMIDITY: You may think succulent leaves = dry air but these babies are tropical. Heart Hoyas want humidity but are not going to punish you if you can’t provide a lot. If you live in a dry climate you can purchase a humidifier (this is mine), place your hoyas in your bathroom (hot shower excuse!), mist them regularly, and/or keep them on a tray of pebbles filled with water.

WATER: It is better to underwater than overwater a Hoya. Their thick leaves store water so I only water when the soil gets fully dry. They do not like their toes to stay wet so make sure you have a fast draining soil (plenty of perlite and sand) and a pot with a drainage hole. These can be epiphytic, like orchids, so they do not need nor want wet soil. In the summer mine get watered once a week and in the winter every 2-3 weeks.
