Var. Hoya Carnosa

As some of you may recall, I continually struggle with how to "manage" my grandmother's plant. Well, here's my latest approach ,,, I used metal rings to clip the twined vines onto a metal wallart piece that I picked up at hobby lobby and mounted to the ceiling. What do you think?

Bottom half:

Top half:

I set the camera on the deck and shot straight up. It's 10.5 ft from the deck to the ceiling. Crazy, huh?

Oh my goodness that must have taken you all weekend! It looks fabulous though. Very inventive. I hope it appreciates all you do for it. *_*

Wow! I didn't know your plant was THAT large! It will be a very pretty sight when it blooms! We don't have Hobby Lobby stores here where I live but I do like the wallart piece that you got!
