I've had a hoya plant for 3 years. Has never bloomed. It's on patio for summer. How do I get it to bloom? Thank you so much for your advice.

A 3 year old hoya is certainly mature enough to bloom so the growing conditions might not be quite right for your plant. I've learned from experience that hoyas bloom best when they are potbound so if you regularly repot your plant, that may be what's arresting it's ability to flower. Hoyas won't bloom if you regularly feed it so hold off on fertilizer and be sure to keep the soil moist but not soggy wet. Hope these suggestions are helpful and your hoya blooms for you later this season.
