When my Hoya blooms it's a cause for celebration.
This Hawaiian plant is very hardy and seems to grow fast. It has long gangley stems that may have one or two heavy waxy leaves. Sometimes I think to cut them off but after having this plant for the past 5 years I know one day a flower will come out....
I just wind the long stems over each other to keep the plant from dangling all over the deck. Don't want to hurt it.
The root system is almost like an orchid. I think I may water it once a month, if that. The pot is so small, a 4in pot, and maybe one day I will repot it but am afraid I may do some damage? It has no soil, just orchid mix.
The little flowers have the feeling of wax or ceramic, depending on the days it's been in bloom. These are about a week old now and are still going strong.
There is another Hoya on my deck and it has white flowers but so far it has not bloomed this year.. give it time. I do prefer the pink/lavender color. Odd but there is no scent?
Today was a beautiful day here in SoFla.
Was a hot 90' but felt oh so good to be outdoors.
I'll be joining
