After an alternative to chocolate and flowers for Valentine’s Day this year?
What about a “sweetheart plant” – also known as a Hoya Heart, Wax Heart or Lucky Heart plant.
The heart-shaped succulent has vine-like tendrils, but the large individual waxy leaves can be potted as individual plants, and they make the sweetest gift.
Hoyas are easy to maintain. Keep them happy on a sunny shelf or window sill, and water every two or three weeks.
