Planting And Care
Avoid keeping in dark places.
Wait until the soil has dried out a little and then water again.
The soil should never be saturated or boggy as this will lead to rotting.
Apply a feed twice a year at most and for an older plant or that single leaf is throwing out new shoots you can feed a little more.
Young plants with only one leaf should start to be repotted when there is new growth.
Hoya Kerrii Care
Start planting when the temperature is stable. Use a small pot for one leaf. Re-pot when a plant grows drastically. Take care of roots while planting. Keep a safe distance between two plants as they should not collide with each other. Avoid cocoa peat-based soil mix.
While, repotting, use sandy soil, agricultural grit, and little organic material. Roots are so delicate and softly formed in the soil. So, try to plant it well.
