My Hoya bella is blooming!

This is one reason why I love Hoya so much. The flower buds look like little edible marshmallow stars and the opened flowers are absolutely adorable! This is the Hoya bella, I bought in April. It bloomed when I bought it, but most of them fell off immediately after I brought it home because it was stressed from the change in humidity and lighting. But as long as you don’t pick off the little flower “branches” when it’s done blooming, it’s going to bloom from those same branches every year if given enough light, water and humidity.

This is only the first of many flowers. I count more than 20 flower branches and most of them are developing flower buds. I’m going to take a few more pictures when it’s crowded with flowers. It’s going to be amazing!
