About This Image

I love the hoya plant I have in my kitchen, although my mother always insists it's too big & healthy to be real & must be a fake! It isn't, and it's in flower at the moment so, as the plant cascades downwards from the pot, I just held the camera underneath pointing up & clicked.....this is what I got. It wasn't until I looked closer that I could see the nectar the flowers exude too (the ants love it unfortunately!). It's very sweet & sticky (yes, I've tasted it lol).

Where can purchase one? I live in Alaska and they are hard to find.

very nice image of this Hoya plant/flowers. Another name is wax plant/flower. I like the droplets of nectar showing. Lucky the nectar didn't get on your lens :)

You just reminded me that I love hoyas! I haven't seen one in ages. So now I'm going to have to find someone with a cutting!

WOW!! a great shot and pretty flowers as well.It sounds like it could be a messy one if it drips much nectar though.

Well, I'm glad to finally know the name of the plant I have with the strange flowers. I got it as a cutting from a friend about 9 years ago and this year was the first time it flowered. I tasted the nectar too :-). Very nice capture, Don
