The Hoya Kerrii plant is commonly referred to as the Hoya Heart because of its heart-shaped leaves. This single leaf cutting is partially rooted, and comes hand potted in your choice of earthenware planter. With proper care – full sun with infrequent waterings – and patience, your heart could start trailing in a few years. We think it's adorable either way!

Hoya kerrii, or Hoya Hearts, are tropical succulent vines that are often cultivated and sold as leaf cuttings. They belong to the Dogbane family, Apocynaceae, which includes some notable plants such as Dogbane, Oleander, Plumeria, Periwinkle, Golden Trumpet, and Mandevilla. Plants in Apocynaceae have latex sap, are usually fragrant, and are high in alkaloids (esp. Iridoids). The aromatic compounds produced by the flowers are prized as fragrances in perfumes, and the flowers are also cultivated as ornamentals in warmer climates. Hoya flowers are fragrant and waxy-looking, with the fragrance changing with the age of the flower.
