Identification: mystery vine with small, pale, pink flowers

Discussion in 'Indoor and Greenhouse Plants' started by Unregistered, Jun 20, 2004.

  1. I need someone help me identify a house I have. It is a slow growing vine that is about 15 years of age. On rare occasasions it gets pinkish-white star shaped flowers, last time this happened was about five years ago. Also it has waxy, succulant leaves. Every reply is appeciated, thanks!

    Sounds to me like a Hoya, and likely Hoya carnosa. The common name is wax plant, wax flower or porcelain plant.

    Hoya carnosa from the University of Oklahoma's Plant of the Week site
     
  3. Thank you for your help. I have identified my vine and found it is indeed, a Hoya Carnosa. I appreciate your help.
