About the plant:
Hoya longifolia is an unpretentious climbing succulent plant originating from vast areas of China, India and Thailand. Its long stems are decorated with narrow and shiny dark green leaves that may resemble beans (from English the String Bean Hoya - a string of beans). Hoye got its Czech name of wax plants on the basis of its star-shaped flowers, which, like their leaves, shine like wax.
Hoya China Beans bloom from spring to fall with sweet-smelling white flowers with a brown center. We never remove the flowered parts of the plant, as another inflorescence will form on them later. Hoyas are fast-growing plants that should be supported as they grow - they are often woven into decorative supports (for example, circles).
