Hoya Krimson Princess 14cm Pot

Hoya ‘Krimson Princess’ is a specific cultivar or variety of the Hoya plant. It is a popular and sought-after Hoya known for its attractive foliage.

Appearance: Hoya ‘Krimson Princess’ is characterized by its striking variegated leaves. The leaves typically have a mix of green, pink, and cream colours. The variegation can be in the form of splashes, speckles, or marbling, giving each leaf a unique pattern. The leaves are generally thick and succulent-like, adding to the plant’s visual appeal.

Growth Habit: This Hoya variety is a climbing plant that can produce long vines if given proper support. It can be trained to climb a trellis, moss pole, or allowed to cascade from a hanging basket. The vines may develop aerial roots, which can attach to surfaces for support.

Lighting Requirements: Hoya ‘Krimson Princess’ thrives in bright, indirect light. It appreciates a well-lit location, but direct sunlight should be avoided as it can scorch the leaves. Place the plant near a window with filtered light or provide artificial light if needed.

Temperature and Humidity: This Hoya variety prefers average room temperatures between 15-24°C. It can tolerate slightly cooler temperatures but should be protected from cold drafts. Hoya ‘Krimson Princess’ appreciates moderate to high humidity levels, so misting the leaves or using a humidifier can be beneficial.

Watering: Allow the top inch (2.5 cm) of soil to dry out before watering the plant. It is important to avoid overwatering, as Hoya plants are susceptible to root rot. Water thoroughly but allow the excess water to drain away. Adjust the watering frequency based on the plant’s needs and the environmental conditions.

Soil and Fertiliser: Use a well-draining soil mix specifically formulated for succulents or orchids. Adding perlite or orchid bark can improve drainage. Fertilise the plant during the growing season (spring and summer) with a balanced, water-soluble fertiliser diluted to half strength.

Pruning and Maintenance: Prune Hoya ‘Krimson Princess’ to control its size and shape. Regularly remove any dead or yellowing leaves and trim back excessively long vines to maintain a more compact and bushy appearance.
