Care Tips for Your Hoya Kerri 🌱

To keep your Hoya Kerri happy and thriving, consider the following care tips:

    • Light: Provide bright, indirect light. Avoid harsh sunlight, especially during the hottest parts of the day.

    • Watering: Allow the soil to dry out between waterings. The Hoya Kerri prefers slightly drier conditions and is prone to root rot if overwatered.

    • Temperature: Keep your sweetheart plant in a warm environment. It appreciates temperatures between 60-80°F (15-27°C).

    • Humidity: While it can tolerate normal household humidity, the Hoya Kerri benefits from slightly higher humidity levels.

    • Fertilization: Feed your Hoya Kerri with a balanced liquid fertilizer during the growing phases.

Cheers to love, plants, and heart-shaped adventures!
