I was walking down the hallway tonight and smelled fragrance coming from the guest bathroom. This little Hoya heuschkeliana sits on the windowsill of an east facing window (frosted glass) where it gets very bright light all day long. This hoya has small leaves and tiny little blooms with a really nice fragrance. I'd grown this one in the past but either gave it away or lost it to a winder freeze one year. I got this one in October, 2015 and it's still in the same tiny 2 inch pot, where it seems quite content and blooms a few times a year.

Isn't that a great little Hoya ! I don't grow it now, but have in the past and found that it really needs to stay in a small pot like you have it. Even when my plant got huge, I was able to grow in in a 4 in. azalea pot. It seemed to prefer the wider shallower pot. Great growing Lin !

Thank you for sharing. I love this little Hoya about as much as any I have seen. Such a cute delicate plant in a lovely location.
