It blooms off and on all year. I would like to know more about it, care, fertilizers etc..if you can help me..Thank you.  carol

Answer
Carol,

Your description sounds like a Hoya plant. Go this website and it will have pictures of the hoya and complete care instructions. http://plantcaretoday.com/how-to-care-for-grow-and-bloom-hoya-plants.html

If that is your plant and you have more questions write again.

If that is not your plant I will need for you to send me a picture of your plant through this website and I will identify it. It is very hard to identify a plant from a description but sometimes I get lucky.

It sounds like you are taking good care of your plant now if it is blooming almost all year long. Congrats and good luck!
