When hung from a basket, the stems can reach lengths of several feet in time. If grown around a wire loop, the length may depend on the size of the wire.
They produce beautiful clusters of star-shaped flowers made up of about twenty small pinkish-white flowers with proper care. Blooms in late spring & early summer.
Your Hoya grows best in bright, indirect sunlight. A south or west-facing window is the ideal spot to place your Krimson Princess, although it will do well in east-facing windows as well.
Direct sunlight at the end of winter and spring can help encourage flowering in Krimson Princess. It can tolerate a small amount of direct sun in the summer. But if too harsh, the sunlight can burn the leaves.
Deeply water your Hoya Plant when the soil is almost dry. It would amount to watering it once or twice a week in the growing season. And once every few weeks in fall and winter.
Additionally, when the humidity levels are low, you can mist its leaves or use a humidifier or a pebble tray.
Good drainage is crucial for the Krimson Princess.
Your Hoya requires a loose, well-aerated and fast-draining potting mix. An equal combination of perlite, orchid bark, and peat will ensure good drainage.
Feed your Hoya liquid fertilizer diluted to half-strength.
In the growing seasons, fertilize your Krimson Princess plant every month. Do not fertilize the plant in fall and winter or when in Bloom.
Your Hoya Plant is considered non-toxic and suitable for spaces with pets and children.
Watch out for Spider Mites, aphids, mealybugs & scale insects.
Do not remove the small leafless stubs called spurs, as this is where the new flowers develop.
Hoyas prefer kept in the same pot for years.

Hoya Krimson Princess is a variegated variant of the popular Hoya Carnosa species. Popular from the 1960's to the '80s, these lowest-maintenance species of Hoya Carnosa have returned to the limelight. These slow-growing houseplants can happily survive for several years. This tropical indoor plant has many nicknames, one of which is Wax Plant - for its large, dark green, almond-shaped waxy leaves. It's also called Porcelain flower - for its beautiful, porcelain-like scented flower clusters.
