Hoya 'Krimson Queen' Care Guide

The Hoya 'Krimson Queen', a captivating variety of the Hoya family, is celebrated for its striking variegated leaves edged in creamy white with splashes of pink and green centers. This plant is a true gem for indoor gardeners, offering not just visually appealing foliage but also clusters of fragrant, star-shaped flowers that add a delightful scent to any room.

Lighting

Requires bright, indirect light to maintain its vibrant variegation and to encourage blooming. Direct sun may scorch its leaves, while insufficient light can lead to less colorful foliage.

Watering

Allow the soil to dry out completely between waterings. Hoya 'Krimson Queen' is drought-tolerant and susceptible to overwatering. Ensure excellent drainage to prevent root rot.

Temperature and Humidity

Enjoys a warm, stable environment with temperatures between 60°F and 85°F. Appreciates high humidity but can thrive in average home humidity levels. Consider increasing humidity for optimal growth.

Feeding

Fertilize with a diluted, balanced liquid fertilizer every 4-6 weeks during the spring and summer months. Reduce feeding in the fall and winter when growth slows.
