Hoya carnosa 'Krimson Queen'

The Krinson Queen is a very attractive variegated variety of the ever popular Hoya carnosa. The Hoya coarnosa along with the Hoya pubicalyx and Hoya compacta is one of the easiest to grow and most widely cultivated Hoya species. As such there are many many cultiuvars. The krimson Queen being one of the best in our humble opinion. 

Originally named Hoya compacts 'Tricolour', these plants are very easy and rewarding to grow, They continue to produce tiny pairs of leaves along their vining stems that get larger and larger until they are full size. New leaves often have pink margins that will revert to white as the leaf matures, given enough light they will produce fully white leaves every now and then.  They also produce cricket ball shaped umbels of tightly clustered, star shaped flowers that are highly fragrant.

Watering

As a general rule, let the top 2-3cm of soil in the pot dry out before watering again in the growing season (Spring and Summer). In the colder months let them dry out much more before watering again. They are highly drought tolerant plants due to their waxy leaves and the photosynthetic pathway they use so if your unsure hold off on the water.

Position and Lighting

As a variegated Hoya they require heaps of bright indirect light if you want them to flower and maintain good variegation. They will benefit from a bit of full sun in the morning as it will help them flower. A north facing window is perfect for these lovely ladies!

Managing Growth

They will be between 30 to 50cm tall when they are delivered but will climb much higher. When they get a bit more advanced you can take stem cuttings. These will give you more plants as well as encouraging the original plant to branch giving it a bushier habit.

What to do when it arrives

Hoya carnosa 'Krimson Queen' ships in a 1.5L nursery pot that is wrapped in a calico bag to keep the soil in during transport. They will fit any pot from our Classic Pot Range.
