    Very nicely grown and a lovely flower. I've grown two or three species of Hoya, but don't have one presently and have never had this one.

    Such a stunning group of plants and this one is
    spectacular. I wasn't aware that any of them
    are fragrant. Jasmine...long sniff!

    Lacunosa grows like a weed! I recommend trying it sometime.

    Don’t quote me on this, but I do believe all species of Hoya are fragrant. This lacunosa’s sweet jasmine smell completely engulfs the room. I keep my hoyas inside until the evening lows get up to 50 degrees, then they stay outside until the following winter. They absolutely love the heat of the valley I’m in.
