Hoya kerrii, commonly known as the Sweetheart Plant or Valentine Hoya, is a charming succulent vine admired for its heart-shaped leaves and low-maintenance nature. Native to Southeast Asia, this plant is a popular gift choice for Valentine's Day or other romantic occasions due to its heart-shaped foliage. It produces small, waxy flowers with a sweet fragrance, adding to its appeal as a decorative houseplant.


Prefers bright, indirect light.

Can tolerate some direct sunlight, especially morning sun, but avoid intense afternoon sun which can scorch the leaves.


Allow the top inch of soil to dry out between waterings.

Water thoroughly when watering, and allow excess water to drain away.

Reduce watering in winter when growth slows.


Use a well-draining potting mix.

A mix of potting soil, perlite, and orchid bark works well.

Ensure the pot has drainage holes to prevent waterlogging.


Thrives in temperatures between 15-27°C.

Protect from cold drafts and sudden temperature fluctuations.


Prefers moderate humidity levels.

Mist the leaves occasionally, especially in dry indoor environments.

Grouping plants together can also help increase humidity levels.


Feed with a balanced, water-soluble fertiliser diluted to half strength every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer).

Reduce fertilising in fall and winter.


Repot every 1-2 years in spring to refresh the soil and provide room for growth.

Choose a slightly larger pot with good drainage.


Watch out for common pests such as spider mites, aphids, and mealybugs.

Regularly inspect the plant and treat any infestations promptly with insecticidal soap or neem oil.


Trim away any yellowing or brown leaves to maintain the plant's appearance.

Prune back overgrown vines to encourage bushier growth and maintain the desired shape.
