Hoya (Hindu) Rope Plant in Bloom

I was giving a Hoya(Hindu) rope plant by my Aunt Sheryl about 6 years ago. She loved the plant and had it for over 20 years. When she moved to Alaska it needed a new home so she gave it to me! The first year I had it to grew a cluster of pink waxy looking flowers, I tried to take pictures of it then but had a film camera at the time (no marco!) so they didn't turn out.

It has been 5 years since then & it has flowered once again....the right picture is of the way they look first all pink & waxy, then they open up & look like stars. It's really a neat thing.

my hoya has not bloomed (white flowers)in 6 years. But it is really happy, maybe next year! Definitely worth the wait!
