Our Hoya plant….in Bloom!

My Mother gave us our Hoya plant when we moved in to our house about 8 years ago. It was a baby then and in the years since has grown into quite a specimen. It has taken over the windowsill and been re-potted twice.


We didn’t know much about the plant and we’re quite surprised when it bloomed several years in! The blooms are a bit alien in nature and have a pink waxy quality star-like in appearance.

Or so we thought, until another two years passed and it bloomed again; this time the waxy pink stars opened again into lovely white and pink flowers:

bloomingno longer alien!

  1. I LOVE Hoya’s. My favorite is the crinkle curl, but they are all beautiful. The blooms are unreal. I wasn’t able to view your photos….not sure why but, unfortunately, they aren’t showing up.
