August 18, 2014

The wax plant is one of my favorite houseplants. I recently broke my leg, which forced me to focus on indoor gardening for a while. As I was sitting here mending, I noticed that my sweet 16-year-old Hoya carnosa is blooming. What joy that has given me. Oh, it has bloomed each year for many years now, but I guess I had semi-ignored it as my heart lies in the outdoor garden. Running out of things to do while sitting on the couch, I decided to do some research on my beautiful Hoya.
