Hoya kerrii variegated, also known as Sweetheart Hoya or Heart Leaf Hoya, is a popular and easy-to-care-for houseplant. Here are some care tips to help you keep your Hoya kerrii variegated healthy:

  1. Light: Hoya kerrii variegated prefers bright, indirect light. Direct sunlight can scorch the leaves, so it's best to keep it away from windows or provide filtered light.

  2. Water: Allow the top inch of soil to dry out before watering your Hoya kerrii variegated. It's important not to overwater it, as this can cause root rot. In general, water once a week, and adjust the frequency as needed depending on the humidity and temperature in your home.

  3. Humidity: Hoya kerrii variegated prefers moderate to high humidity levels. You can increase humidity by placing a humidifier nearby or by placing a tray of water near the plant.

  4. Temperature: Hoya kerrii variegated prefers temperatures between 60-80°F (16-27°C). Avoid exposing it to cold drafts or sudden temperature changes.

  5. Soil: Use a well-draining soil mix, such as a potting soil that contains perlite, vermiculite, or sand. This will prevent water from sitting around the roots and causing rot.

  6. Fertilizer: Feed your Hoya kerrii variegated with a balanced liquid fertilizer once a month during the growing season (spring and summer). Follow the manufacturer's instructions for dosage.

  7. Pruning: Prune your Hoya kerrii variegated to maintain its shape and remove any yellowing or damaged leaves. You can also pinch back the stems to encourage fuller growth.

  8. Propagation: Hoya kerrii variegated can be propagated by stem cuttings. Place the cuttings in moist potting soil, and keep the soil consistently moist until the cuttings have rooted.

Note: Hoya kerrii variegated is a slow-growing plant, so it may take a while to produce new growth or propagate. Be patient and consistent with your care, and your plant will thrive.
