Plant

About 4 years ago my co-worker Karen inherited this plant from the director of nursing who was moving. Karen took care of it for about 2 years and had it sitting on her desk. It looks almost fake because the stems of it are so thick, but it's planted in dirt. Two years ago when I moved to an office with a window, I inherited the plant. It's a crawler, but originally it was just one 2 foot sprawl. Once I put it in my office it started growing an long sprawling section that is now 8 foot long and reaches clear across the window sill.

Last week I noticed these little buds on it. There were two bunches of blossoms about a foot apart in the center of the sprawling vine.

Yesterday the first set of blossoms, bloomed. They are these pretty little flowers only about 3/4" big, but super cut3.

I think it's so pretty and it's been a really easy plant to take care of, but no one knows what it is. This is the first time in 4 years that it has ever bloomed. We thought it was just a normal house plant. Does anyone know what type of plant it is??

Hi Moneik,

It's called a Hoya plant. Here's a link to the wikipedia site:

Love you blog, by the way. This is the first time that I've commented.

Glad someone knew what it was because I didn't, but it's beautiful. I love low maintenance plants!

XOXO,
