This Hoya is extremely easy to grow. It looks very nice in a hanging basket outside in bright filtered light in frost free areas or indoors by a window. The leaves on this H. carnosa are more unusual, they have 8 “crinkles” or “dimples.” The flowers are like all carnosas; pink with reddish center and in our opinion smell like chocolate at night!
