The Sweetheart Hoya 6" (Hoya kerrii), or Valentine Hoya, gets its name from the thick heart-shaped leaves making it a favorite for giving on Valentine's Day and when romance is in the air. Plant your hoya in a hanging basket near a window and before long you will have a basket full of thick, green heart-shaped leaves.
The Sweetheart Hoya prefers bright, diffused lighting but can tolerate some shady locations. The thick leaves are reservoirs of water making it drought-tolerant so water it only twice per month when the soil dries out completely. This easy-to-maintain plant is slow-growing but in the summertime clusters of white blooms with burgundy in the center.
