Are you a fan of Hoya? Then this Hoya Krimson Queen should definitely be part of your collection! The Hoya Krimson Queen is a sturdy hanging plant with beautiful colors in the leaves. The leaf is, just like with other Hoya varieties, thick and waxy. You now also understand the nickname ‘wax plant’.
The Hoya Krimson Queen is originally found in Asia, Australia and the Pacific. A warm spot is therefore recommended for this plant. For example, do you have a spot by a west facing window? There you can put or hang this Hoya perfectly! The plant also likes a slightly moist soil, but pay attention that no water remains in the pot. You can also give the plant a spray once in a while, but it can happen that some water residue remains on the leaves.
Are you looking for an easy and colorful plant? Then this plant is definitely a good addition to your interior! For more fast growing Hoya be sure to check out: Hoya Pubicalyx or Hoya Wayetii Variegata.
For the best care possible we have a real pro tip for you! Hoya Carnosa Krimson Queen is one of my personal favorite Hoya. Recently I’ve moved the plant to a spot with a bit more direct sunlight. Mainly 1 meters from a south facing window. And I’ve noticed that the new growth comes out in a gorgeous pink color! This lovely pink slowly fades into white. And there is much more variegated parts in the new leaves. So to conclude keep in mind the following motto: ‘More light equals more white’.
(Of course do make sure the leaves don’t burn and your plant might need a bit more water due to this warm place. And every plant and every home is unique so just see what works best for you!)
