Plant Type

Cactus & Succulent
Cactus and succulents are plants known for their thickened, fleshy parts that function for water storage. These hardy and low maintenance plants need little to no attention.

Even the kids can enjoy growing and caring for these plants since they are easy to grow, safe, and non-toxic. Kid-friendly plants will surely help make your home nice-looking without having to worry about skin irritation, allergies, or plant poisoning.

Pet Friendly
These are the perfect plants to keep in your home, even if you have curious pets that chew on almost everything – including plants. They are safe and non-toxic, so you don’t have to worry about your plants poisoning your cats and dogs.

Light Care

Medium Light
These plants need filtered or dappled sunlight. You would want to place them in a well-lit room with windows, but away from direct light. A sunny window with sheer curtains is also a good idea.

Water Care

Low - Medium Water
Plants with low to medium water requirements need at least once a week of watering. Water these plants when the soil feels dry to touch.


Low Fertilizer
These plants would appreciate a regular application of fertilizers during the growing season. They aren’t heavy feeders, and feeding at low rates is enough for these low-fertilizer plants to grow well.



Plant Care

A unique member of the Hoya genus, Hoya Kerrii are easy to take care of, but slow to show results. Capable of tolerating lower light conditions, this plant prefers bright indirect light. Water when the soil is almost completely dry, and feed them only in the spring and summer. When repotting your Kerrii, use our Cactus and Succulent Soil to allow for better drainage.


Hoya Kerri's are native to South China, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Thailand and the Indonesian island of Java.
