I was given a Hoya as a gift. Always wanted one
What color will the flowers be? (Hope I can get it to bloom)

It is green and white with light pink on some leaves.

It's all about choices.
It's H. carnosa 'Krimson Queen'... the white margins can be white/cream/pink....and change. Lovely plant!!!!! Flowers are pink to white. This is a really tough hoya and actually prefers cooler temps (can take down into the 40s), likes to dry out before watering and is good to grow if you need a plant for a lower light area....

No, afraid not. Some get more pink than others but as you grow it, you'll see it. I have a lot of these. Usually that is the most common hoya in the big box stores.

It could be light....but it also could be simply the clone. Color of ANYthing is not stable.
