Hoya Kerii leaves

Asked November 19, 2020, 9:56 PM EST

I have a variegated Hoya Kerii and the edges of the leaves are turning brown. It seems to be spreading to all the leaves.
I haven't over watered bc I let it dry out completely between watering. I tried to cut some of the brown spots off but that's not helping. I don't know what to do.
Can you help?

Thank you for your question. Leaf problems are typically an issue of watering--too much or too little. Pruning brown spots off is not a cure. I suggest you follow these guidelines: https://gardeningsolutions.ifas.ufl.edu/plants/houseplants/hoya.html Good luck!

So you don't think it's a fungal infection?

it could well be a botrytis blight (https://pnwhandbooks.org/plantdisease/host-disease/hoya-botrytis-blight) but we cannot diagnose this over the Internet. I suggest you contact your own county Extension service to obtain diagnostic advice: https://extension.wsu.edu/clark/about-us/ Good luck!
