The hoya produces cascades of succulent green leaves that have earned it the name "wax plant." With adequate light, proper care and time, this hardy and easy-to-grow houseplant can bloom with fragrant and delicate flowers that resemble stars made of porcelain or wax. Depending on the variety of hoya you choose, the flowers vary in size, shape and color. The hoya carnosa, one of the most popular houseplant varieties, produces light pink flowers.
Hoya blossoms reach their peak fragrance in the evening. Move your hoya plant outside at night if the fragrance is too strong.
Avoid placing hoyas in a south-facing window. The plant will produce blossoms, but the leaves will become stiff and yellow.
Do not cut off the flower spur after blooming, since new flowers will grow on the same spur.
