Hoya lacunosa

This Hoya is referred to as the ‘Cinnamon Scented Wax Plant’ for it’s fragrant cinnamon blooms.  Flowers are pale yellow and bloom often. Like many Hoyas, it does well in a hanging basket. It is a hardy species that can be grown in a well-ventilated terrarium or as a house plant.  In the summer it benefits from being grown outdoors in partial sun or shade.  If grown in a full sun location the newest stems will often dry out and eventually fall off.  It is native to Indonesia.

When this plant flowers, it does so in abundance, and for long periods of time (think months).
