What is Hoya kerriii
Hoya kerriii (scientific name: Hoya kerriii) is a vine, epiphytic, and succulent plant native to Thailand, Laos, and other Southeast Asian countries in the genus Hoya of the family Apocynaceae. It grows as a 30-400 cm long vine that wraps around other trees or posts. The leaves are heart-shaped, 6 cm long and 0.5 cm thick, and are attached in opposite pairs. Leaf color can be green or variegated green with yellow. From June to September, a diffuse inflorescence, about 5 cm in diameter, grows from the leaf axils and produces numerous small, fragrant, pretty, star-shaped, pink flowers. The petals are 1.2 to 1.5 cm in diameter, and the petals are tubular joints. The flowers are followed by pouch flowers. The heart-shaped leaves are popularly planted in small flowerpots.
It is also called "Siamese Cherry Orchid" because it is mostly from Thailand, and "Love Heart" or "Love Heart" because of its cute heart shape.
