Blooming Wax Flower

I’ve owned my wax plant (Hoya Carnosa Plant) for about four years now and it finally gave me one bloom.

The buds took a few weeks to open up.  And once it did bloom, it lasted about 1 month.  It was a pleasant surprise to finally see what type of flower it would turn out. Since there are so many varieties of wax flowers.

It didn’t have any kind of scent.  The leaves are really hardy and doesn’t need much attention or watering.  I just grew up next to a tall bush and it started to climb up the limbs.

I’ve been tempted to make cuttings, but it seems easier to just separate the root ball and re-pot them.  So far I have about 3 plants in small pots and will give some away as gifts.
