Hoya Kerrii Features: An Overview
- In their natural habitat, they are climbing vines that can reach up to 13 feet (4 m) in height. They can be found growing mostly among trees.
- While growing, these plants form steady roots that help them cling onto surfaces to provide support and absorption of nutrients and moisture.
- Hoya Kerrii plants climb their way up on tree trunks and curl around the branches to receive the light they require for photosynthesis. They are fast-growers.
- Their thick, succulent, greenish, fleshy-leathery, and heart-shaped leaves grow oppositely on glabrous, pale, and woody stems. They measure between 1.6 and 4.7 inches (4-12 cm) in length and 2 to 3.9 inches (5-10 cm) in width.
- During their blooming period in summer, mature Sweetheart plants produce curious globe-shaped and hanging inflorescences facing the ground. They grow about 2 inches (5 cm) in diameter and contain up to 25 flowers.
- The tiny, flat, and star-shaped flowers have the typical appearance of Hoya plants. Each bloom is formed of two stars that appear one on top of the other, called corolla (bottom) and corona (upper).
