The textured leaves of the Hoya Krinkle set it apart, with deep puckering creating ripples on the teardrop-shaped leaves. A natural epiphyte, the Krinkle can be taught to climb or be left to trail over its container. It is a drought tolerant plant that can survive periods of neglect, but appreciates regular watering and good drainage.
The cutting you receive may or may not have roots already developing, but all cuttings should have the potential to grow roots.
Un-rooted cuttings should be placed in a glass or jar of water as soon as possible. Make sure that nodes (the spot where the leaf meets the stem and aerial roots form) are below the level of the water, and place in bright, indirect light. Change and refresh water 2-3 times per week. Allow roots to become several inches long and well established before transferring to well drained potting soil.
Rooted cuttings may be planted into soil immediately, or may live happily in water for several weeks.
Care: Care Difficulty: A bit finicky.
Light: Bright indirect light.
Water: Once planted, water when soil is mostly dry.
