Wait until the soil has completely dried out before giving your plant another drink

Things To Do

Hoya Kerrii

Water your Hoya Kerrii sparingly, it’s a succulent so it’ll store water in its leaves. Wait until the soil feels dry before watering it again. You’re better off underwatering your Hoya Kerrii, than overwatering it but if the leaf appears soft and wilted in appearance, then it needs a little drink.

Hoya Kerrii

The Hoya Kerrii enjoys lots of light. Find a spot within your home that’s bright and sunny but not in direct sunlight.

You can lightly mist the moss to keep it looking fresh.

Things Not To Do

Hoya Kerrii

Keep your Hoya Kerrii away from draughty spots and radiators to keep it happy. If you place your succulent in direct sunlight during Summer, the colour of the leaf can begin to fade and turn yellow, dappled light is best.

When watering, avoid the leaves and water the soil directly. The Hoya Kerrii doesn’t like to have soggy feet, as this can lead to root rot. If you suspect there’s too much water in the bottom of the pot, drain off any excess off & let the soil dry out.
