Hoya carnosa 'Krimson Princess' or Hoya Tricolor is one of the rarest flowering evergreen vining plants in the Wax Plant family. Native to Southeast Asia and Australia, this stunning houseplant is best known for its thick, glossy foliage that has creamy white centers and dark green borders. Young Hoya Krimson Princess emerges with a bright pink tint, gradually fading to the common pastel pink, creamy, and off-white shades.
In their native habitat, Hoya plants can grow up to 20 feet long and have a maximum length of 6 feet when growing as a potted plant. This low-maintenance indoor houseplant is easy to grow and perfect for beginners.
Hoya Krimson Princess produces clusters of fragrant star-shaped flowers that last for about one week. The flowers are light pink with deep red shades in the middle.
Hoya prefers bright, indirect light to maintain its variegation. However, avoid direct sunlight to prevent sunburn.
Water when the soil is dry to the touch. Water more often in brighter light and less often in lower light. Well-Drained, Porous potting soil.
It thrives well in 65°F - 80°F temperatures. Avoid temperatures below 50°F. Hoya prefers some humidity over-dry air.
This plant should be fertilized once during the growing season (spring/summer) with diluted houseplant fertilizer.
Hoya Krimson Princess is non-toxic to humans and pets.

When you purchase online, your plants have to go through lots of stress while traveling so they may need a few days to adjust to their new environment and thrive. If your plant does not perk back up after a few days of care, let us know and we will send replacements free of charge. Remember that we always try our best to accommodate you.
It’s advised that you should repot the plant as soon as you get it. After repotting, your new houseplant will most likely struggle with transplant shock. It may appear droopy, faded, or have a slower growth rate than usual during this time. This is completely normal, and it’s also normal for transplant shock to hit especially hard after repotting a brand-new houseplant. To make sure your plant has plenty of time to adjust to its new surroundings, wait a day after potting and water your plant. Make sure any excess water drains completely from the pot afterward. Monitor your soil’s moisture levels daily to start creating a watering routine. To help perk up your new houseplant, we recommend adding a little water-soluble fertilizer, compost, or sugar water to your soil to boost its nutrients and help it grow.
