My mum has this, she is fascinated with the waxy texture of the flowers, she calls it a crown of thorns plant.

So beautiful! I'm waiting so patiently for my Hoya bella to flower. I got it as a little thing almost two years ago now and it's been so slow to take off.

Thanks all - I wish that you could smell it!
Bernie - there'll be no stopping it once it does!

Thanks Karen!
If you look closely, you can see the nectar that oozes out of an evening producing that heady scent.

Oh yes, the, if I recall rightly it's sticky isn't it....I think that's why I gave up on my bella.

It is sticky - I'm surprised that she hasn't given it to me!
