This is my Hoya Kerrii. It used to be a pretty baby before but somehow since last month its heart-shaped leaves started to wrinkle up, and after a week or two, the leaves began to fall apart 🙁
At first when I found the wrinkled leaves, I suspected that it might be a pest or disease problem. However, after a thorough checking, I found nothing suspicious. And because I was very busy with many other events and projects on hand, I didn’t pursue further or take any counter action. (I must confess here for I feel so guilty…)
And it is not until a week or two later, when most of the heart-shaped leaves have fallen did I guess that the cause may be due to this year’s excessively hot summer. So from the balcony, I brought it into my room. It’s been over two weeks already. Although the burnt wrinkled leaves look more or less the same, the stems feel a little stiffer and stronger now.
Actually I am not sure if the record-breaking hot weather this summer is the cause of the problem. As far as I know, Hoya Kerrii is a succulent that can tolerate pretty high temperature… But anyways, we will see. Hopefully, my Sweetheart Hoya will get well and be healthy soon again.
