Skip the roses, there are more unique plants that can be used to covey your love! Meet the Hoya kerrii plant. Its green and fleshy heart-shaped leaves have earned it the nicknames "lucky heart" and "sweetheart plant".
A species of Hoya native to southeast Asia, the Hoya kerrii is a slow-growing succulent vine that climbs up other plants and around branches to reach sunlight. As it grows, it forms roots that help it cling onto supporting surfaces. An indoor Hoya kerrii can be potted hanging as a trailing plant or tabletop with a trellis to climb up.
Particularly easy to care for, it is one of a few species of Hoya plants that makes for an ideal houseplant. A low-maintenance gem, it requires infrequent waterings and bright to moderate indirect light, similar to most succulents and cacti. A little watering tip of the trade - the Hoya leaves will start to show littler wrinkles if not given sufficient water.
