Hoya Carnosa Krimson Queen is a draping succulent vine that produces clusters of star-shaped waxy flowers. Krimson Queen has green leaves with variegated borders. The variegation can be from white/cream to yellowish depending upon the growing conditions.
This type of Hoya is very easy to care for as long as you keep it in a bright spot and are careful with water. Like many other types of Hoya’s, this species is epiphytic in its natural habitat, which means it’s actually an air plant with crinkly succulent leaves.
Many people swear that Hoya’s are the easiest to care for houseplants! They make for excellent houseplants as they can whit-stand neglect.
The plant is approximately 15cm long and it comes in a plastic nursery pot 12cm.
Soil: Lightweight, fast-draining potting mix
Light: bright indirect
Repotting: Hoya’s like to be pot bound, they need to be repotted very seldom
Please note: Hoya Carnosa Krimson Queen won’t flower unless it receives very bright indirect sunlight. A south-facing window would be ideal, although eastern and western exposures may also work if they are bright enough. This plant will even tolerate a little direct sunlight.
