          Hoyas are known as the wax plant because their flowers and leave have a waxy look and feel to them. They are a genus in the Asclepiadaceae family with most of them, except a very few, having milkweed . The sap runs clear in such plants as the Hoya carnosa, Hoya fungii. Their species are found from Japan and China in the North, to Indo-China and Australia in the South; some also grow from India to the Pacific Islands.

          Almost all Hoyas are vines that either trail or climb, but some are more shrub like or actually hang down. They are always found on the stem and branches of trees in the forest. Their leaves also vary

Their colors go from white, yellow, green, pink, purple to dark red and to nearly black in Hoya ciliata. All colors are found in hoyas except blue.
