The Best Soil for Growing Hoya Kerrii Indoors

Sweetheart Hoya plants need loose, quickly-draining soil to thrive. The best type of medium for this species of Hoya to grow is orchid pot soil, sphagnum moss, coconut husk or cactus mix. You can also create a potting mix for Hoya kerrii by combining potting soil, perlite, and orchid bark.

When it comes to growing these climbing hoya plants, water should quickly drain through the soil. The appropriate soil for succulent-like plants such as Hoyas needs to have better drainage than for standard houseplants. Sweetheart hoyas—mature plants and single leaf cuttings—need soil that dries out fast.

Hoya kerrii is a species of plant that can grow in a soilless medium. For example, if you use an orchid potting mix, you will have to water the heart leaf vine more often than if you use a potting soil mix. If you have a single leaf Sweetheart Hoya, then a loose, loamy soil that is mostly dry is ideal.

This hard to find, super popular houseplant has a bit of scandal and mystique surrounding it. I will explain shortly, but like any Hoya, Hoya kerrii is a fantastic houseplant and will make a very long-lived addition to your indoor jungle with minimal care!

I will go through some care tips for both the plain old green Hoya kerrii, as well as the variegated Heart Leaf Hoya. These plants are also called Sweetheart Hoya or Valentine’s Hoya, but this is all is part of the “trap” that I will share with you now!

…And Propagating a Plant

If you do manage to get your hands on an actual cutting, be sure it has at least two leaves and attached to a healthy piece of the stem. If you purchase a cutting online, look for the same. Be sure the seller always shows a photo of the actual plant. I’ve been seeing cuttings and smaller plants on ebay and Amazon for for about $20-40 USD.

Once you have the cutting, you can plop it in water to grow some useful roots. Be sure to keep the leaves above the water, only the roots submerged. After a few months you can plant in a well-draining mix (similar to mine above). Hoya kerrii are the slowest growers, but you should see some good stuff happening in a few months and you’ll be on you way to a lovely looking vine.
