Hoya australis (Wax Plant)
Hoya australis features broad, shiny leaves that are eager to climb up a trellis or cascade gracefully over the sides of its pot. Regardless of how you decide to grow your Hoya, they don't like being repotted often or jumping pot sizes. It produces clusters of star-shaped, fragrant flowers that are creamy white with burgundy centers.
Once a Hoya starts to put on flower buds do not disturb it, and after it has bloomed don't remove the spent flowers. Allow the dead flowers to fall off on their own. This interesting plant doesn't like to be repotted unless it's absolutely necessary.
