The Hoya kerrii variegated can grow up to 13 feet long. This slow-growing variegated Hoya kerrii is a popular choice for hanging baskets or as a trailing plant in indoor gardens. It's also a fantastic choice for vining up trellises or other supports.  

Unlike this trailing Hoya kerrii variegated variety, our other Hoya Heart Plant variegated variety and the Hoya heart plant variety stay as single-leaf Hoya kerrii, adding a touch of charm and symbolism to any space.

When it comes to flowers, the variegated Hoya kerrii produces clusters of small, star-shaped blooms in the summer. The flowers are typically pale pink or white and emit a sweet fragrance, filling the air with a delightful scent. Although it might not bloom often indoors, this variegated hoya kerrii flowering plant is truly stunning to see when it does.  

The variegated Hoya kerrii can be propagated through stem cuttings. Simply take a healthy stem cutting with a few nodes and place it in a well-draining succulent soil. It's a rewarding process that allows you to expand your entire plant collection or share the joy of this plant with friends.  

Additionally, this variegated variety of Hoya kerriis is generally considered non-toxic to humans and pets

Watering Needs 

When it comes to Hoya kerrii variegated care, it's important to follow similar guidelines as its non-variegated counterpart. Just like the regular Hoya kerrii, it's best to allow the soil to dry out between waterings to prevent any potential root rot.  

In the spring and summer, during the growing season, you can water your Hoya kerrii variegated once every 1-2 weeks. However, it's crucial to adjust the watering frequency based on the specific needs of your plant and the conditions in your environment. Factors like humidity, temperature, and the size of the pot can all impact how often your plant requires water.

In the fall and winter, during the dormant season, you'll want to reduce the watering frequency to once every 2–4 weeks. Remember to always check the moisture level of the soil by sticking your finger about an inch into the soil. If it feels dry, it's a good indication that your plant is ready for a drink!

Light Requirements 

If growing indoors, the variegated Hoya kerrii loves bright, indirect light. It enjoys being in a spot where it can receive a few hours of bright, filtered sunlight each day. Placing it near a north- or east-facing window is usually a great choice, as it provides your trailing hoya vines with the right amount of light without direct exposure to the harsh afternoon sun.  

If growing outdoors, your Hoya kerrii variegated thrives in full sun to partial shade. It's important to avoid placing your variegated Hoya kerrii in direct sunlight for a prolonged period, as it can scorch the leaves and cause damage. If you notice that the leaves are turning yellow or brown, it might be a sign that your Hoya kerrii variegated is getting too much sun. In that case, you can move it to a slightly shadier spot to protect it from excessive light.

If you notice that the leaves are becoming pale or stretching towards the light, it might be an indication that your variegated Hoya kerrii is not getting enough light. In that case, you can gradually move it to a brighter location to ensure it receives adequate light for optimal growth.  

Optimal Soil and Fertilizer Needs 

The Hoya kerrii variegata prefers sandy, well-drained soil, as excess moisture can promote root and stem rot. Planet Desert specializes in succulents and has specialized succulent potting soil that includes an organic substrate with mycorrhizae to help with the growth of a healthy root system to help your variegated plant thrive. As an okay alternative, you can create your own potting mix by combining equal portions of perlite, coarse sand, and good natural potting variegated Hoya kerrii soil.

As for fertilizer, Hoya variegate doesn't require excessive feeding. You can use a balanced (5-10-5), water-soluble NPK fertilizer specifically formulated for houseplants. During the active growing season, which is typically spring, you can fertilize your variegated hoya kerrii once a year to encourage flowering. Be sure to dilute the fertilizer according to the instructions to avoid overfeeding.  

It's important to note that during the dormant period, which is usually in the fall and winter, you should reduce or stop fertilizing altogether. This allows your Hoya kerrii variegated to rest and prepare for new growth. 

Hardiness Zone & More 

When it comes to indoor growing, the variegated Hoya kerrii prefers temperatures between 60°F and 80°F. So, keeping it in a comfortable room temperature range is ideal. As for humidity, these tropical plants can tolerate average humidity indoors, but they appreciate a slightly higher humidity level, around 50–60%. You can increase humidity by placing a tray filled with water near your hanging plants or using a humidifier.

If you're considering growing your variegated Hoya kerrii outdoors, it's important to note that it is typically suitable for USDA hardiness zones 10–12 year-round. It thrives in warm and tropical climates, with temperatures ranging from 65°F to 85°F. However, if you live in a colder climate, you can still enjoy your Hoya kerrii outdoors during the summer months and bring it indoors before the temperatures drop below 60°F.

Remember, it's always a good idea to acclimate your lovely Hoya kerrii variegata gradually to any changes in temperature or humidity. This helps prevent shock and allows your succulent to adjust comfortably.

Final Thoughts  

Overall, the Hoya kerrii variegated is a super cool tropical plant with heart-shaped leaves that have this awesome creamy white or yellow variegation. This variegated variety of Hoya kerrii is not only great for hanging baskets, but it's also a fantastic choice for vining up trellises or other supports. Its trailing nature allows it to gracefully drape down from hanging baskets, while its vines can be trained to climb up trellises, adding a beautiful touch to any space. While it might not flower a ton indoors, when it does, the flowers are these cute little star-shaped blooms in red, pale pink, or white that smell really nice. You can totally propagate it by taking stem cuttings and growing new plants.

Mealybugs: These small, white, cottony insects can infest the leaves and stems. To treat, you can gently wipe them off with a cotton swab dipped in rubbing alcohol. 

Spider mites: These tiny pests can create fine webbing and cause leaves to yellow and develop spots. Regularly misting the leaves and wiping them with a damp cloth can help prevent spider mite infestations.

Lack of variegation: Sometimes, Hoya Kerrii Variegated plants may lose their variegation and produce solid green leaves. This can be caused by insufficient light. Ensure your plant receives bright, indirect light to maintain its variegation. 

Remember, prevention is key! Regularly inspect your variegated hoya kerrii for any signs of pests, provide proper care, and address any issues promptly to keep your Hoya Kerrii Variegated plant healthy and thriving.
