Hi Judy and welcome to NGA!

Hoya, aka Wax Plant definitely don't like wet feet so unless the pot it's in is bone dry, don't water it.

Thank you so much. I used to have so many plants (years ago), and thriving too. I have a South facing window, and I had a wax plant too that flowered and smelled so pretty. But then it got away from me..too many to keep up with. Now I'm going with fewer plants that I can manage. This little wax plant is adorable and surprised me with this bud. I will probably will call on you again if you do mind. I appreciate you answering me so fast. Thank you again🎍🌡🌾🌸

Hi Judy - welcome ! Anyone who grows Hoya is a friend of mine Hurray!
My Hoya are also at the budding stage. I just water as usual, no deviation from the routine.

These three Hoya (2 on windowsill one hanging) are at my office, and 9 years old. I told the accountant in the office above me on the 2nd floor to keep an eye out, their growing through the drop ceiling !
