Hoya ‘Curtisii’, also known as Tiny Leave Porcelain Flower and Hoya Aloha, is an easy-to-grow, very resilient, epiphyte vine with delicate, variegated, small heart-shaped leaves accented with silver mottling. It's native to tropical environments of Southeast Asia. Its leaves are succulent and grow on dense, clinging vines that cover the top of the pot like a mat. The vines will naturally cascade or climb, making this plant great for hanging baskets.

Best Locations For Growing Hoya 'Curtisii'

Curtisii enjoys room temperatures of 70-80 degrees F and will do well as long as temperatures stay above 55 degrees F. Avoid placing it in areas that have cold drafts. In its natural habitat, Hoya Curtisii will climb up trees, so you can also train it up a moss pole. Cooler night temperatures and shortened days stimulate bloom in some varieties of Hoya. 

Hoya 'Curtisii' Sunlight Requirements

This Hoya prefers bright indirect light, or partial sunlight in a north or east window. 

Hoya 'Curtisii' Care

Plant Curtisii in a light, well-aerated, well-draining potting mix. You can add perlite and orchid bark to a houseplant potting mix or use a succulent/cacti mix with additional perlite to increase drainage. Provide an environment with temperatures above 55 degrees F. Hoyas tend to grow slowly and enjoy being rootbound, so you can keep them in the same pot for years. Repot in a new pot that is a few inches larger than its former home; be sure it has good drainage holes. 

Watering Hoya 'Curtisii'

Allow the soil to dry out between waterings. If you notice yellow leaves, your plant is most likely too wet. Scale back on waterings. If you notice wrinkly leaves, it’s too dry. 

Feeding Hoya 'Curtisii'

Use a well-balanced houseplant fertilizer at half the recommended strength once a month during the active-growing summer months.

    I am not sure I received a healthy curtisii Hoya. I haven’t ever seen this plant have red leaves and they feel flat and hard.
