What is the name of this plant?
I would like to get another one, but can't remember or find the name online. I've had it 6-7 years and this is the first time it's flowered. It has three long strands of hard green (kind of brain-shaped!) leaves, and the flowers were a shock! Pale pink and furry/waxy.
I had the same plant here in Greece, only its leaf was darker than that and thicker. We call it here the wax flower and guess what so do they in English!

I hope the link I've attached helps.
All the best!
I think it is a kind of Hoya, and possibly a variety of Hoya carnosa called 'Krinkle Kurl'.
I'm not certain because I've never seen a Hoya like this live, but take a look at this link for a very similar flower:

The leaves are not normally like this, but rather more conventiional leaf shaped, but take a look at this link for a white flowered form with odd leaves like this:

I concur that it is a Hoya, specifically Hoya carnosa with its crinkled leaves.
Definitely a hoya. I'm in the market for one myself. I just moved into a house that has windows with lowE glass. All my sun loving houseplants are dying, so I need houseplants that need less light. This is perfect. Looks great in a hanging basket. If you have it outside, keep it in a semi-shady area.

Do plants have feelings?I was watching a gardening channel and they showed a plant that curled up its leaves when it was touched. That made me wonder whether or not plants have feelings. I know, it's a silly question....
