Thank you @Cyndi. They are bigger than I thought they would be. I can’t wait for this Hoya to get big enough that it makes those flower balls.

One of these flowers is gonna have four petals. It looks like one of those chicklet gums. Trying my hardest to refrain from eating it. #hoya #hoya-flower #succulent #succulentsunday

@cyndi my grandma has some sassafras trees she just planted. I can see when they make seed and grab you some or even a cutting before then if you think it would root.

@cyndi Okie dokie. She had been trying to plant some for a few years now. She planted some that finally took this year! She bought them so I’m sure she doesn’t know of any that are wild. ): I have been eyeing them too so I will get enough seeds for both of us if and when they bloom! ❤️

Thanks @gauravsh6 ! @cyndi I can ask my grandma if she knows where some are. I really wanted to get some because idk, I always wished I had one when I was a kid. I read that they get massive FAST and propagate SUPER easy to the point that if you aren’t careful they can take over your yard so I decided against it. 😢
