Hoya Heuschkeliana Variegata 2-Inch

(29 customer reviews)


1 in stock

This Hoya Heuschkeliana Variegata is a rooted cutting with new growth. I love the shape of the leaf and the inner variegation. They are quite fast-growing with a relatively small root system and seem to have stable variegation.

When they have bright, indirect light the new growth is a pink/red that fades to the green and white variegation.

Please read my FAQ page for more information about shipping and local pick up.

About the Heuschkeliana Inner Variegated Hoya

Where it is from?

It is native to the Phillipines, and like other hoyas is considered a semi-succulent.


The leaves are quite tiny and grow very compactly. The leaves like to grow in bunches and can either be a hanging/trailing plant for it can be trained to go around a trellis. I think it looks the best when it both goes up a trellis and hangs down.

Most hoya leaves are thick and rigid and the leaves on these are thicker than you may think but relatively thin for a hoya. These leaves have a creamy, white inner variegation and are one of my most stable hoya variegation.


It can take a year or two for the plant to get mature enough to bloom, depending on the size of plant you started with and your growing conditions. The flowers are pink and I’m told smell like buttered popcorn. I haven’t had mine bloom to verify this though because I usually cut my hoyas for propagating before they have a chance to bloom.

If they are given consistent conditions they will always think it is summer and bloom year-round.


Like most hoya, they take a while to root and get started growing, but once they do, they grow quite fast for me. I would say they get new leaves every 2-3 weeks. If you want to see if you can get yours to grow faster, read this article to see if you can get some ideas.

How do you care for Hoya Heuschkeliana Variegata?


I personally grow all my hoyas in my fine aroid mix and they love it.


A good rule of thumb for all hoyas is to water when the top two inches are dried out. I like to water all my plants using my self-watering system so they are evenly moist but not damp.


The general advice is bright light with no direct sun – but that has never been helpful to me. If you are growing near a window,  keep them a few inches away from a south window or directly in a north window to start then move them around if they look like they could use more or less light.

I can tell you that I grow mine with the top of the plant about 5-7 inches away from a Barrina T5 grow light for 14 hours a day. I do recommend a light meter so you can check the amount of light. Mine are generally at about 400 foot candles so they get a light sun-stressing but also grow quickly. I’ve heard they can go up as high as 1,000 FC.

You can tell it isn’t getting enough light if it is leggy, slow growing, starts to lose its variegation, or doesn’t get sunstressed and/or pink to red leaves when they first come out.

Humidity and Temperature

These will grow fine in ambient room conditions but will grow faster with higher humidity and temperature. My keep my plant room pretty consistently at 60% humidity and 73 F and most of my plants love this. You can do higher humidity, but make sure to also increase the temperature relative to the humidity so there is good VPD. I measure my humidity and temperature with this hygrometer.


I add 1/4 tsp of this fertilizer to my houseplant gallon watering can every time I water.

When to Repot

These tend to have a relatively small root system and prefer pots on the smaller size and they take a long time to get root-bound. I would stick with the pot its in as long as its happy in it isn’t root-bound.

Pests and Disease

I have personally not had a problem with either of these but I also avoid a lot of these problems but having good soil, light, and humidity conditions and by doing routine pest control.

How do you propagate Hoya Heuschkeliana?

I like to take a mature hoya and snip off the last 2-3 sections of growth. Then I cut off the bottom two leaves, making sure to leave what is left of the stem then I get a small pot full of my aroid mix mentioned above, stick the cutting in the mix and water it using my self-watering system just like my other plants.

If you don’t have already at least 60% humidity, you can do something like put it in a take-out container or rubbermaid box to increase the humidity for a week or two then gradually get it used to regular household humidity once it has a few roots.

Are there other varieties of Heuschkeliana?

There is an outer variegated one and a green one with yellow flowers. There is a red flowering cultivar but it is rare.

Are hoyas toxic to pets?

Good news! They are non-toxic to cats and dogs.
