I love growing unusual and interesting things and am teaching my son to love it too. I have a tiny mostly potted garden in Newcastle NSW.

@grantham I call them hoya. Until GT I had never known them as anything else. The plant links are from the GT encyclopaedia so u get all sorts of names for things. It's really interesting to find out the names that other people use! 😄

Is this one from your garden or do you keep it indoors?

@ulrikagustafsson This one is an Australian native so I'm lucky because it easily grows outside here. 😁

It's so very different from where I live! 😉 My mother has one growing on a trellis (is that the right word?) It originally came from her mother.

@ulrikagustafsson mine is a family heirloom too! Is from a piece of my grandma's which may have been from her mother's!! 😀

What a coincidence! 🙂I really like this flower, it's very pretty, but if I'm to inherit it I'm not sure it's going to survive my caretaking😬. I'm better at the garden plants. We call it porcelain flower here.
