Through out the spring and summer of this year (2016) my tiny, two cutting, Hoya lanceolata bella ‘White’ continued to grow until I had one piece around 14 inches long and another piece about 5 inches long. I no longer feared losing the plant, and the longest cutting started to form a peduncle. I did not get too excited about it at first as I had seen many very tiny peduncles abort in the past. This peduncle however was different and not only hung on, but started to grow! I watched it daily for weeks and finally was rewarded with what you see below. The blooms are stunning and sweetly scented.
