I have a Hoya for more than 10 years that has never bloomed. I got it from my Mom and it did bloom for her. She told me to put it in the hot sun---It fried, lost all leaves. With a lot of nurturing it is beautiful again, but no blooms. What am I doing wrong??? I keep it on my cover, open patio and bring it in for the cold times.

Your Hoya needs bright, indirect light (not sun). That may be the problem.

Did you repot it? Hoya need to be rootbound.

Watering? Evely moist but not dry.

They also like humidity. And to be fed in the summer with 1/4 strength fertilizer.
