House Plant Favorites HOYA Also Known As The Wax Plant.
The first time I saw this gorgeous plant was at my grandmother’s house. It was one of my favorites and it’s easy to see why! When in bloom the plant produces star shapes flowers in tiny bunches that hang delicately from the ends of it’s vines.
These plants can do really well both indoors and out and it’s one of my favorites to decorate my home with.
My Hoya blooms once a year between August and September. They do take a few years to start blooming so if you want one that blooms I suggest purchasing them in bloom season so you know your plant will bloom for sure.
This beautiful plant requires good sunlight and will do well near a window. It’s a low maintenance plant that requires watering only once the soil dries out completely. For me this is once a week and sometimes less depending on the season. The key to a healthy Hoya plant is to remember when watering, less is more. I also add organic fertilizers once a year and have had good results so far.
