Hoya carnosa - Wax Plant
Hoya carnosa is the classic Wax Plant from your childhood, a staple of bright kitchen windows. Hoyas are known for their long, vining tendrils, waxy leaves and sweet-smelling flowers. Hoya carnosa has large, dark green, almond-shaped leaves that emerge along its long vines, which will eventually put out clusters of pink flowers with dark red centers.
• Light: Perfect for bright, indirect light

It’s took a month to get to me and the plant was so small and not what I expected. The photo was a little deceiving.
