What other plant parents say
I love my Sweetheart Hoya! I wouldn’t say fast grower because my plant grows in fast spurts then relaxes for a bit. I got this plant shipped and it arrived in great condition. I’ve had this plant for just about a year now and it has grown two new leaves and I can see another getting ready to grow! I think this plant has a lot of personality. I have never had any browning, but the leaves get looser and are not a firm when she is unhappy. I am to the point where i think this plant would be happy with a stake to grow upwards :)
Buying a sweetheart Hoya as just the heart makes it challenging to grow into anything but that one cutting but every now and then they can start to shoot off and grow into a full plant.
Remember that Hoya like small pots and don’t water too often!
These plants are a great choice for your space!
