Previously Hoya multiflora. One of the more common species in cultivation as it is very easy to grow and flower. Doesn't look like traditionally expected of a wax plant as it grows upright like a bush in stead of twining and it's leaves are quite thin.

Easily rooted in a glass of water. Although it might take some time it's usually an efficient method. As Hoya javanica is very willing to bloom it might do so before it has roots.

Tolerates some drought but does best if kept slightly moist at al times. Should not be exposed to bright sunlight but rather kept in semi shade or shade.
