Planting and care

Start planting when the temperature is stable. Use a small pot for one leaf. Re-pot when a plant grows drastically. Take care of roots while planting. Keep a safe distance between two plants as they should not collide with each other. Avoid coco peat-based soil mix.

While, re-potting, use sandy soil, agricultural grit, and little organic material. Roots are so delicate and softly firmed in the soil. So, try to plant it well.

Sunlight: Full sun to part shade
Soil: Well-drained, Sandy Soil
Water: Low
Temperature: 18 to 30 degrees C
Fertilizer: Use any organic fertilizer.

Caring for Hoya kerrii

  • Avoid keeping in dark places.
  • Wait until the soil has dried out a little and then water again.
  • The soil should never be saturated or boggy as this will lead to rotting.
  • Apply a feed twice a year at most and for an older plant or that single leaf is throwing out new shoots you can feed a little more.
  • Young plants with only one leaf should start to be re-potted when there is new growth.
