    Hi everyone,

    My gf has had a Hoya Kerrii plant for about a year I got her as a gift. In the last few days it's started turning brown unexpectedly. It hasn't been moved or any conditions changed.

    There used to be a twin plant that turned brown and died within days last year... it was moved every so slightly one day and died.

    It would be lovely to save this plant as I got it as a gift for my gf while I'm away. Any ideas on what we can try to save it? More water, less sunlight, etc. Or do Hoya Kerrii's really only last about a year when you buy them?

    Picture attached. Thank you for your help!

    Too much direct sunlight. Hoya plants prefer bright, indirect light, and too much direct sunlight can cause the leaves to become sunburned and turn brown. To solve this problem, move the plant to a location with less direct sunlight or provide some shade. At the stage pictured hard to say how well it will recover.
