Yes Steven...if the plant is being kept warm and has sufficient light it'll continue growing...but, the most pronounced growth is in the summer, in the case of most hoyas. Many of my hoyas are still sending out vines and leaves...lots of leaves!! BTW, did you get your H. multiflora from Joni yet? If so, what are your impressions? Ya gotta keep us updated kiddo!!! Best wishes, Patrick

Much to my surprise my kerrii is getting new leaves too. In the past motnth thre has been a total of 8. They are coming in two by two. It looks like there's going to be a vine in between the most recent ones. . .

They sure take a long time to mature. Must be cuz the are so thick and big.

I'm just happy to see it's happy :)

My experience w/ green H kerrii is that it's quite happy to grow all year long (I grow indoors only). Mine loves to grow long bare vines in Spring & then fill in afterwards.

Reverse Kerrii is another story altogether -- in 2.5 yrs. I've had the cutting, it has grown TWO leaves, both deformed in shape.

My variegated Kerri grows Hydro & seems to have slowed down for Winter (I only got it in Oct. 08, so am still new to its winter habits).

All green H Kerrii is one of the most vigorous Hoyas I've had to date. Don't be surprised if it keeps growing all winter.
