Hoya Kerrii Variegated, also known as Sweetheart Hoya Variegated, is a succulent vine plant and a cultivar of Hoya Kerrii. Renowned for its classic, heart-shaped foliage, a single leaf from the plant is often potted and sold as a Valentine’s Day gift.
The thick, solid green leaves are variegated with a light green or creamy yellow color. During summer, the plant produces clusters of white or pale pink flowers with red-purple centers.
This specimen thrives best under bright, indirect sunlight. Sufficient light is especially important because its variegated sections do not have chlorophyll to carry out photosynthesis. It does well in an airy potting mix containing succulent soil and perlite.
The plant does not need much fertilizer and only needs to be watered every 2 to 3 weeks. Due to its epiphytic nature, it likes remaining pot bound, so you seldom need to repot it. The vine stems of this cultivar can reach up to 13 feet long, while the leaves grow around an average of 2 inches wide.
Lovely and easy to care for, you don’t have to wait until a special day to gift yourself (or your significant other) the Hoya Kerrii Variegated plant.

We ship from Los Angeles, and we only ship within the United States. We do not ship to Hawaii / Canada / International. We typically ship on Mondays or Tuesdays to avoid plants being stuck in transit over the weekends, but we may sometimes ship later in the week depending on order volume. With that said, we cannot guarantee or control delivery time. If delivery time is a concern, please opt for upgraded shipping.
We take great care when packaging and preparing your plants for shipment. They'll be shipped either in a nursery pot in soil or sphagnum moss, or shipped bare root wrapped in sphagnum moss or other damp material to retain moisture. We also add poly-fil around the plant for padding, then wrap it in bubble wrap, and finally add packing peanuts for extra cushion to ensure a safe and clean transport.
We also offer local pick-up if you're in the Los Angeles area.
