How to Care for Variegated Heart Leaf Hoya

  • Light: Prefers bright, indirect light or filtered bright light
  • Water: Allow soil to completely dry in between watering. The succulent leaves will hold water. During warmer months, keep the soil moist.
  • Humidity: Average relative humidity of 25% to 49%
  • Temperature: Average from 18°C to 24°C (65°F - 75°F)
  • Fertilizer: Follow a monthly fertilizing schedule when the plant is actively growing. In most cases, this is in the spring and summer. Use a balanced fertilizer - this means a ratio of NPK that is all the same. Ex: 10-10-10.
  • Soil: Use a well-draining, chunky medium.
  • Propagation: Stem cuttings
  • Repotting: This can be done every 12-18 months. Choose a pot that is 2” larger in diameter than the original pot. Only do so when necessary as Hoyas prefer to be rootbound.
  • Cleaning Tip: Wipe the leaves often to remove any debris.
  • Toxicity: Non-toxic. Although, it is a great practice to keep your plants away from pets and children.

Variegated Heart Leaf Hoya - Common Problems

The leaves are rotting: Reduce watering and proceed to bottom water to ensure excess water does not sit on the surface of the soil.

My leaves are shriveling: This can be a sign of underwatering. Increase watering and try to water before the leaves start to shrivel.

There are faded, light yellow marks on the leaves: The plant may be too close to direct sunlight and hasn’t had time to acclimate to the intensity of light.

Signs of Overwatering: New growth becomes soft and brown and the leaves begin to drop.

Common Pests: Aphids, mealybugs, spider mites, and scale.
