Introducing the Single and Double Hoya kerri Variegated Hearts, also known as the Variegated Sweetheart Plant or Variegated Hearts Valentine Hoya, is an adorable and popular Valentines gift for plant lovers. What makes this variegated hoya heart unique is that you can buy one as a single, double, or mixed-heart variety.

The name "variegated Hoya Hearts" comes from the thick, heart-shaped, bright green with creamy yellow, waxy, glossy leaves. These popular indoor Valentine plants can grow up to 5 inches in height, making them a great choice for small spaces. It's a slow-growing plant, so you won't have to worry about Hoya heart plants taking over your living space.

The variegated Hoya hearts are a unique houseplant with one or two heart-shaped leaves in a single pot. Unlike the Trailing Hoya Kerrii variegated vine, which has long vines that cascade down, these variegated Valentine plants are unique as they stay single and double leaf, making them perfect for indoor cultivation. Each variation has its own special charm, allowing you to choose the one that speaks to your heart the most. 

Additionally, single and double Hoya hearts are considered non-toxic to humans and pets. So, you can enjoy its beauty without worrying about any harm to your furry friends if they happen to nibble on it.

Watering Needs 

In the spring and summer, during the growing season, you can water your variegated Hoya Hearts plants more frequently. Aim to water it about once a week or whenever the soil feels dry. Overwatering can lead to root rot and other issues, so it's best to let the top inch or so of the soil dry out before watering again. Stick your finger into the soil to check the moisture level; if it feels dry, it's time to water!

In the winter months or during the variegated hoya kerrii heart dormant period, you'll want to reduce the frequency and water sparingly. It's also important to consider the type of pot and soil you're using. Make sure the pot has drainage holes to allow excess water to escape, preventing water from sitting in the bottom and causing root rot. 

Remember, it's always better to underwater than overwater your Hoya Kerrii variegated Hoya Hearts. These plants are quite resilient and can tolerate periods of dryness. So, when in doubt, it's safer to wait a little longer before watering.  

Light Requirements 

When growing your variegated Hoya hearts indoors, it thrives in bright, indirect light. Place it near a window where it can receive bright, filtered sunlight. Avoid exposing your Valentine plant to direct sunlight, as it can scorch the leaves. If you notice the leaves turning yellow or brown, it may be a sign that the variegated single or double leaf hoya is getting too much direct light. If you lack natural light, try supplementing with a full-spectrum LED grow light.   

If you decide to move your plant outdoors, it's important to provide it with the right amount of natural light. These variegated Hoya hearts plants enjoy bright, indirect light or partial shade. A spot with filtered sunlight, such as under a tree or on a covered patio, would be ideal. If you live in a region with intense sunlight, it's best to provide some shade during the hottest parts of the day. 

Remember, finding the right balance of light is key to your succulent health and growth. Whether indoors or outdoors, make sure it receives bright, indirect light to keep those lovely, variegated heart-shaped leaves looking their best!  

Optimal Soil & Fertilizer Needs  

When it comes to soil, variegated Hoya Hearts leaves prefer a well-draining potting mix. You can create your own potting mix by combining equal parts of potting soil, perlite, and orchid bark. This combination allows for proper drainage and aeration, preventing the roots from becoming waterlogged. Instead, make or buy a well-draining potting mix, or ideally use our specialized succulent potting mix that contains 5 natural substrates and mycorrhizae to promote the development of a strong root system that helps your variegated heart-shaped succulents thrive.

As for fertilizer, variegated Hoya kerrii heart plants don't require a lot of feeding. During the active growing season, which is typically spring, you can fertilize your hoya hearts plant once a year with a balanced (5-10-5), water-soluble NPK fertilizer. To prevent overfeeding, dilute the fertilizer to half its recommended strength.  In the dormant period, which is usually in the cooler months, you can reduce or stop fertilizing altogether.

It's crucial to avoid overfertilizing, since this might cause the soil to become salty, which can harm the roots. So, a little bit of fertilizer during the growing season will keep your variegated Hoya Kerrii Hearts happy and healthy!  

Hardiness Zone & More 

When it comes to indoor conditions, variegated Hoya Hearts plants prefer average room temperatures between 60°F and 75°F. They can tolerate slightly cooler temperatures, but it's best to avoid extreme fluctuations. Keep your double hoya heart plant away from drafts or direct heat sources like radiators or air conditioning vents, as they can affect the overall temperature stability.  

If you are living in USDA zones 10–12, you can grow your hoya hearts outdoors year-round. These zones include regions with average minimum temperatures above 30°F. If you live in a colder climate, you can still enjoy your Hoya Kerrii double leaf outdoors during the warmer months, but you'll need to bring it indoors or provide protection when temperatures drop.  

If you live in a naturally humid area, your variegated hoya heart plants will be in their element. However, if you live in a drier climate, you can increase humidity by misting the leaves or placing the heart plant in a naturally humid room, like a fountain or pond. Just be sure to monitor your plant for any signs of excessive moisture or fungal issues. 

Final Thoughts 

Overall, the Hoya Kerrii 'variegated Hoya Hearts leaves' is a very low-maintenance and popular houseplant that brings a touch of romance and charm to any space. Its variegated heart-shaped leaves symbolize love and affection, making it an ideal present for anniversaries, Valentine's Day, or any special occasion.

Variegated Hoya kerrii thrives in bright, indirect light, watering when soil feels dry, but avoids overwatering. A well-draining potting mix prevents waterlogging.

Pests & Common Problems of Variegated Hoya Hearts 

Hoya Hearts variegated are generally resilient plants, but they can still face a few common problems. Here are some common pests and problems you may encounter with Hoya Hearts:   

Mealybugs: These small, white, cotton-like insects can infest the variegated Hoya hearts plant, especially in warm and humid conditions. To remove them, use a cotton swab dipped in rubbing alcohol or an organic insecticidal soap. 

Aphids: These tiny, green, or black insects can cluster on the leaves, sucking sap from the Hoya kerrii hearts. You can get rid of them by washing them with a strong stream of water or using insecticidal soap.   

Root Rot: Overwatering or poor drainage can cause root rot, causing the roots to become mushy and brown. To prevent this, make sure the pot has drainage holes and allow the soil to dry slightly between waterings.  

Leaf Drop: Excessive temperature fluctuations, low humidity, or underwatering can cause the plant to drop its leaves. Maintain stable temperatures, provide adequate humidity, and water the Hoya Hearts plant when the top inch of soil feels dry.  

Insufficient Light: These variegated Single or double Hoya Hearts prefer bright, indirect light. If the plant is not receiving enough light, it may become leggy or fail to produce new growth. Move it to a brighter spot, but keep it away from direct sunlight, which can scorch the leaves.  

Shriveled or wrinkled leaves: If the variegated heart leaves appear shriveled or wrinkled, it could be a sign of underwatering. This plant prefers slightly moist soil, so if it's not receiving enough water, the leaves can become dehydrated and lose their plumpness. Ensure you water the plant regularly, allowing the top inch of soil to dry out between waterings, but avoid overwatering, as it can lead to root rot. 

Remember, prevention is key! Regularly inspect your Hoya hearts for signs of pests, maintain proper watering practices, and provide the right light and humidity conditions. With a little care, your variegated Hoya Kerrii Hoya Hearts will stay healthy and happy!
