Hi, I purchased this single leaf Hoya Kerrii before Valentine's Day this year. I know that single leaf will not grow into a full plant and will remain a single leaf. I'm okay with that since she's still pretty, but wouldn't mind if she does grow into a full plant with more leaves of course.

Today, I decided to see if there was a node on mine, but I can't tell. Anyone can shed some light if there is enough of the stem or if there's a node here for the plant to grow? Thank you!

The node is not very prominent, but it is the point where the roots are emerging.

I doubt it will grow a vine.

Sweetheart Hoya (Hoya kerrii 'Variegata') has such pretty leaves but all I see is a leaf petiole with roots. To produce a vine, it would have to have part of the main plant stem attached.

@oneeyeluke @willc @daisyl @plantladylin Thank you so much everyone for taking the time to answer my question.

Although the chances are slim to none, I'm hoping she's an overachiever and will defy all odds and shoot off a vine haha. A girl could only dream, right? 🤪. She's still pretty as a single leaf, so I'm happy either way.

When plants have healthy roots they will continue to find a way to continue to grow, albeit very slowly at least initially.

Keep us posted.

If there is even a small piece of main stem attached, there's a chance it will produce a vine but if it's only the leaf stem/petiole, it's likely to remain a pretty rooted leaf.
