Hoya aff. clemensiorum (IML 1752) Will Flower For First Time in Almost 4 Years

Hoya aff. clemensiorum (IML 1752) flowered last in July of 2014.  I discovered shortly after the event that the roots were rotted and it was stress induced flowering.  Well I took a cutting and saved the plant, which is now much larger than the original.  I hope this time it is flowering because it wants to and not because of stress.  Here is a photo of the buds from this morning and one leaf photo.

Happy Halloween!

It seems just like yesterday that I made this Happy Hoya Halloween video, but it has now been five years.  I just watched it for the first time in a long while, and there is some interesting stuff in it.  There is a nice time-lapse of the flowers opening on H. pachyclada, and good footage of my six foot high H. cumingiana that along with three of the cats in the video have long since passed on. Time just keeps moving forward; there is nothing we can do to slow it down.

Hoya subquintuplinervis or Hoya pachyclada?

There seems to be some question as to whether my Hoya pachyclada might be Hoya subquintuplinervis.  All I know if I bought it under the pachyclada name from Melanie Myers years ago.  She was a very knowledgeable Hoya grower, and I will leave my plant labeled as is until I know definitively one way or another.  When you look at photos online, it could be either or.  Whether you want to call it H. pachyclada, or H. Hoya subquintuplinervis you will have to agree that it is one of the finest Hoya plants of all time.  I started my plant over this past year and it already has bloomed several times.  Here are photos from this week:
