    This plant symbolizes the length the relationship may last….and the delicate nature of love.

    I bought three of these without knowing what they really were. Two died and one has continued being green despite having been pulled out of the pot it was pretty much glued into and tossed aside to be thrown out. But yesterday I discovered it was still hanging on, so I've brought it inside, put it in a jar of water, and will see what happens. Thanks for the info in your video!

    Hi, I bought one single heart at a store. I immediately re-planted it and waited 2 years . Keeping it dry and water inly once a week in warm season. It finally grew into a plant after 2 years!…

    I'm pretty sure there's a little plastic thingy around the roots that keeps them from growing into vining plants. Cut it off and it should grow.

    Last year, I bought one on sale after Valentine's day. It is yet to produce a single shoot. At least it's still alive.

    Thanks for posting this. I'm an amateur indoor gardener in NYC & grow multiple Hoyas, including H kerrii, the Heart-shaped Hoya leaf. We see this scam from time to time as well. A number of yrs. ago, I persuaded my own local supermarket (in Brooklyn) to quit selling these, maybe 8-10 yrs. ago, for $12 a pop, not a cheap loss. They probably had 6 or 8 for sale when I stopped them.

    I had one last year for Valentine's day and the soil was full of small sliver looking bugs. I didn't realise until it was to late and the bugs spread to my millipede habitat, I had to buy some type one preditory mites to get rid of the silver bugs. Lesson learned to always check my soil!
