Hoya Kentiana Variegata is well known for its unique and variegated foliage. Their leaves are waxy and variegated pink when the plant is young; as your plant matures, their leaves turn from pink to green and white. When taken care of properly, you may even get to see your Hoya houseplant produce red and fuchsia flowers.
This vining succulent plant thrives best in well-draining soil, humid climates, and exposure to bright light throughout the day. This plant can grow fairly quickly, and its branches will grow to be quite long. The trailing growth habit of this Hoya makes the plant great for hanging baskets or on the edge of a window sill where it can trail off.

How to Care for Hoya Kentiana Variegata Plants
After purchasing your Hoya kentiana Variegata Plant, be sure to read the recommended care instructions to ensure your plant stays happy and healthy for years to come!
What is the Best Growing Soil for Hoya kentiana Variegata Plants?
Hoya kentianas thrive in peat-based potting mix. Any potting mix that contains one part peat moss and one part perlite soil mix is perfect! If you do not have any peat moss available, a chunky, bark-rich soil mix will do the same job. It is best to create or purchase well-draining potting soil for your Hoya plant. If they are in non-well-draining soil, their roots will soak up too much water and rot. This rotting will cause serious damage to your plant's health.
How Much Sunlight does my Hoya Plant Need?
Hoya kentiana plants must be in bright indirect light and even thrive if you place them in direct sunlight for a few hours in the morning or evening. If you have a poorly lit home and no artificial growing light, your Hoya will not thrive to its best potential. Also, avoid putting your plant in mid-day sunlight for too long this could burn their leaves. If you live in this Hoya's hardiness zone, try planting in a hanging basket and placing it on your porch, as long as it has enough shade throughout the day.
What type of Fertilizer does a Hoya kentiana Variegata Plant Need?
You can use synthetic fertilizer or organic fertilizer for your Hoya; it is a personal preference. If you are using synthetic, feed your plant once a month during the growing season in spring and summer. The best time to fertilize your Hoya is one day after watering. If you use an organic fertilizer, we recommend using vermiculite or fish emulsion. This will help avoid and fertilizer burn or salt deposits that will damage your plant. When the winter/dormancy season arrives, stop fertilizing until the next growing season.
When should I Water my Hoya kentiana Plants?
Similar to most Hoya or succulent plants, make sure your Hoya kentiana plant's soil dries completely before watering. When it is time to water, give your houseplant a deep watering and allow any excess liquid to drain from the container's drainage holes. It is crucial to plant your Hoya in a container with drainage holes to ensure excess water drains out during the watering process and does not stay in the pot and drown the roots.
