Hoya Carnosa 'Rubra' (often called Hoya Krimson Princess 'Rubra') has almost burgundy vines and the leaves are darker green, often with white and some pink in them. If grown in bright light, the new growth has stunning dark pink leaves that turn creamy yellow as they mature. 

Hoya Carnosa Rubra Plant Care

Light: The Rubra grows best in a well-lit position indoors with plenty of bright and indirect sunlight. If it is placed in a spot that is too shady it will experience slower rates of growth.

Soil: Ideally an airy, lightweight and chunky potting mix. Tired of mixing your own? Try our tried and tested Aroid & Hoya Potting Mix

Watering: This plant prefers to be dry down thoroughly in between waterings. Like most Hoya varieties, they appreciate higher levels of humidity.

Climate: The Rubra withstands regular household temperatures but doesn't respond well to abnormally low indoor temperatures.

Feeding: Use a balanced fertiliser such as GT Foliage Focus or GT Complete Focus 1-2 times a month throughout the growing season in Spring and Summer.
