The Hoya Carnosa, known as the ''wax plant'' or ''porcelain flower'', is a pretty climbing or trailing plant. Its leathery leaves can have silvery spots. Its magnificent flowering bringing together between thirty and fifty small waxy star-shaped flowers is simply spectacular. The white and pale pink flowers gain brilliance in the evening. However, it rarely flowers before it is 2 years old. To encourage its flowering, it is recommended to install it in a bright room and reduce the frequency of repotting.
