Where is it from?

The Hoya ‘Krinkle Kurl’ originates from Southern India. In its natural habitat, it grows as an epiphytic plant. This means that it grows upon another plant for physical support.

Hoya ‘Krinkle Kurl’: Scented Flowers 

The Hoya ‘Krinkle Kurl’ produces tiny creamy-pink star-shaped clusters of fragrant flowers. It should bloom in late spring & early summer. The flowers form on leafless spurs so do not remove them from the stems. 

Is this the right plant for me?

This is a plant that’s easy to care for, as long as you can keep temperatures relatively warm. Its succulent leaves store water within them, meaning it has low watering requirements. Yet, it will not cope with cold temperatures in the winter months. To keep it healthy, you will need to keep this plant protected from icy draughts. It’s unique and eye-catching, and you will be rewarded with pretty flowers as a token of your tender loving care. Best positioned on a shelf or in a hanging basket. 

Plant Care Tips

  • Light: This plant likes bright, indirect sunlight. About 3-4 hours of bright light will encourage optimum growth. 
  • Water: The succulent leaves of this plant store water, meaning it has a medium-low watering requirement. Water once a week in the spring and summer months, once the top 5cm of soil has dried out. Water lightly throughout the winter. 
  • Soil: Plant in well-draining soil. A succulent potting mix will work well. Alternatively, add perlite to an all-purpose compost. 
  • Humidity: Hoya ‘Krinkle Kurl’ likes humid conditions - ideally, above-average levels. You may like to place the pot in a pebble tray to increase humidity.
  • Fertilizer: For optimum growth, feed with a balanced liquid fertilizer once every 2 months during the spring and summer. Discontinue in the winter months. 

Hoya ‘Krinkle Kurl’ Common Problems & Questions:

How can I propagate by Hoya ‘Krinkle Kurl’?

You can easily propagate this plant by taking stem cuttings in spring and early summer. Remove the leaves from the lower part of the cutting and place it in a small pot of cutting mix compost. Cover with a plastic bag to create a moist environment for the cutting to take root. Keep out of direct sunlight. 

Do I need to prune my plant?

Prune your plant if you want to control the growth of the stems, or if growth has become spindly. Spindly growth (long internodes) is caused by lack of light and you should move your plant to a position where it can receive more bright, indirect sunlight. If pruning, cut back to just above a node to trigger new growth. Do this in springtime so that the plant has time to recover throughout the summer. 

Is my Hoya ‘Krinkle Kurl’ susceptible to pests and diseases?

This plant may be affected by mealybugs and spider mites. These little pests love to feed on the plant's juicy foliage. In cases of infestation, isolate the plant and treat it with an insecticidal soap spray. 

Why isn’t my plant flowering?

Hoya ‘Krinkle Kurl’ is a slower-growing trailing plant as it needs to put a lot of energy into growing its thick and waxy foliage. If you have a young plant, it is likely to take a few years of growth before the flowers appear. The flowers will not bloom if the plant is stressed, so if your plant is still not flowering, it is a good indication that your plant needs more care. More light, nutrients or water may be necessary.
