I’m not crazy about hoya, but I do have a few of them.
A family friend gave us a hoya cutting many, many years ago. She assured us that the plant was easy to care for. “… and the flowers look like pearls,” she said.
She was right; the hoya is an easy plant.
The cutting survived all these years, taking rough handling and neglect in its stride. It didn’t grow much, but at least it didn’t die. And it definitely never bloomed.
The twining plant was covered with luxuriant leaves and had umbels of waxy blooms.
And then I bought a couple more, including a hoya pachyclada.
Perhaps now the first hoya might have a growth spurt. Who knows, it may play catch-up and even decide to bloom as well!
Care and propagation: Filtered sun or bright light, light porous media such as a mixture of peat, husk, soil and perlite; water moderately. Propagate using stem cuttings
