Variegated Hoya Kerri, also known as the Sweetheart Hoya, is a beautiful and unique houseplant that is known for its heart-shaped leaves with white or pink variegation. Here are some care tips to help you keep your Variegated Hoya Kerri healthy and thriving:

  1. Light: Variegated Hoya Kerri prefers bright, indirect light. It can tolerate low light, but it may not grow as quickly or produce as many leaves. Avoid direct sunlight as it can scorch the leaves.

  2. Water: Allow the soil to dry out slightly between waterings. Water the plant thoroughly when the top inch of soil feels dry. Do not overwater as it can lead to root rot.

  3. Humidity: Variegated Hoya Kerri loves high humidity. You can increase humidity by misting the plant with water, placing a humidifier near the plant, or grouping it with other plants to create a mini greenhouse effect.

  4. Temperature: Variegated Hoya Kerri prefers warm temperatures between 60-80°F (15-27°C). Keep the plant away from cold drafts and windows.

  5. Fertilizer: You can fertilize the plant once a month during the growing season (spring and summer) with a balanced liquid fertilizer. Do not fertilize during the dormant season (fall and winter).

  6. Pruning: You can prune the plant to control its size and shape or to remove any damaged or yellowing leaves. This will also help promote new growth.

  7. Repotting: Variegated Hoya Kerri should be repotted every two to three years. Use a well-draining soil mix and a pot that is one size larger than the current pot.

  8. Pests: Variegated Hoya Kerri can be prone to mealybugs and spider mites. Inspect the plant regularly and treat any pests promptly with an appropriate insecticide.

  9. Soil: Variegated Hoya Kerri prefers a well-draining soil mix that is rich in organic matter. You can use a mixture of peat moss, perlite, and potting soil to create a soil mix that is well-draining and nutrient-rich.

  10. Support: Variegated Hoya Kerri is a climbing plant and will benefit from a support structure. You can use a trellis or other structure for the plant to climb.

Following these care tips will help your Variegated Hoya Kerri thrive and stay healthy. With its unique and beautiful heart-shaped leaves, it is sure to be a lovely addition to your indoor garden.
