Hoya carnosa
My family's legacy house-plant. I've had this plant for about 40 yrs--came from a cutting of my grandmother's plant when I was a child; she got hers from my great-great aunt. Gotta love it! See, I grew up thinking it was normal to let a vine consume at least one interior wall, maybe two ;)

What an astoundingly amazing banner Dirt! One picture is worth a thousand words. This one is worth 2,000.
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

Very beautiful. It shows why this plant is also referred to as 'wax flower'.

Dirt, what a lovely plant and gorgeous banner. I love legacy plants. I have an epiphyllum that was my grandmother's.

I don't even have the words to describe this one. It is beyond amazing! What detail, and now that I know the history behind the plant, it is even better!

Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray!

The move? oh my--I am trying to figure out how many moves--at least nine that have been traumatic enough for me to remember so I am going to quit thinking about that and go back to hoping that I don't ever have to move again Hilarious!

This banner makes me want dessert. The centers of the blooms remind me of something, but I can't remember the name....not jello or pudding...maybe a combo of the two?? Dang...wish I could remember because I want some...served cold and not that much of a taste...maybe almond?? Thumbs up
