Hello everyone,

wanted to ask if anyone could help identify what type of plant this is.

I have had it for 15-20 years and it just flowered for the first time this past fall.

Such pretty little flowers.


Thanks for any help ~

Well that is just beautiful! Can we get a picture of the entire plant? It does look as if it could be some kind of jade plant from the leaves I can see, but there are a lot of different succulents out there.

I know, I know, I know....It is a Hoya.... I love that bloom..wax and drips scent. I have that plant. LOVE IT. How old is it? The story is it takes them 7 years to bloom. I have found that to be false. Takes longer for some.

Thank you Rosebud, I am thinking this one is 15-20 years old and we are quite certain it has never flowered before.

I looked up Hoya pictures, and yes the flowers look like these!

So is the Hoya a jade?

Thanks again to both of you for your help :)

I don't believe it is any relation to the jade. totally different growth habit. It is a vine, tropical vine. The blooms feel waxy and drip fragrance.... I love that plant. I have had one that bloomed and the one i have now has not. Had it for probably 10 years at least. Enjoy that lovely plant.

I have been looking up Hoya Flower pictures, and although the flowers look the same, the leaves and plant structure are different on mine!

I will try to show some more pictures of my plant soon.


Thanks again!

Thanks!

Yes, I have seen that curly Hoya before, it is a cutey. I have had them in our home forever... I think i might give mine a little shot of food and see if it blooms. Pretty flower.

Yep, Hoya.

DO NOT cut the flowers off! They bloom again from the same structure. I cut some off for my wife and found out the hard way.

It does take forever to bloom, but was pretty regular once it started. Of course it was outside in SoFl, so no idea about anything north of Ft.Lauderdale. Had it for years till a hurricane finally took it.
