 Everything you love about the classic Carnosa, but with leaves lined in white and pink, in addition to the green. This beautiful tricolour Hoya variegates more as she grows, and sports a soft alternative (or partner) for the Krimson Princess.

Care

Light: Bright, indirect light is best for the optimal growth of the Hoya Carnosa Krimson Queen plant. Choose an indoor position near a window that will provide plenty of indirect bright sunlight. The plant cannot tolerate direct sunlight combined with high heat, as it will scorch the flowers and leaves.

Water: The Hoya Carnosa is semi-succulent, so it can survive with minimal watering. You should maintain slight moisture in the potting soil, but thee plant can tolerate short dry periods because the semi-succulent vines are good at storing moisture. So even if you forget to water the plant once or twice, it still has some moisture stored to survive.

Temperature/Humidity: Prefers high humidity.

Soil/Potting: 
All Hoyas need to be potted in planters with drainage. These plants are very sensitive to too much water, so be sure to use a well draining soil with plenty of pumice and/or perlite. We suggest 1/3 peat, 1/3 perlite, and 1/3 orchid mix(bark, perlite, or charcoal). Good drainage and aeration are key! Hoyas don't mind being rootbound, it's said keeping your Hoya rootbound will accelerate blooming!

Care Tips: Prone to spider mites and mealy bugs dependent on environment and exposure. Never cut the long tendrils! Leaves and flower clusters develop from these.
