Hoya sp. gunung gading doesn’t want to put on leaves too often, but when it does!
This Hoya is so beautiful, I need to spend one more day showing it off. The plant was grown completely in an artificial environment and has not seed real sunshine since I’ve had it.
Hoya blashernaezii ssp siariae has at least 10-12 peduncles full of buds and flowers. I just made a video of the plant for posterity.
You can’t keep them all and this is one of the many Hoyas slated for elimination from my collection this summer. Here is the last new bloom photo of Hoya sp. EPC-207 on this site:
Since it flowered for the first time, Hoya paulshirleyi is flowering non-stop with sometimes up to four peduncles in bloom at the same time. Here is a new quick snapshot from this morning:
I’m sure that Hoya hahniae would never flower like this if it were not for my perfectly created artificial environment, but it is amazing never the less.
Is this a record number of flowers and buds on a Hoya papaschonii peduncle? Probably not, but it is a record number for me. I count 12 and if the flowers were bigger, people would be begging for this plant. As it is, I can hardly give away the seed!
Hoya fitchii is from the Philippines and Hoya paulshirleyi is from Indonesia, but they seemed to get on quite well!
The flowers of Hoya fitchii don’t last very long, but they made a nice accompaniment on the breakfast table one day this week.
I received a very tiny white Hoya patella plant from Torill Nyhuus in 2013 after having failed with a cutting from David Liddle a couple of years before. This one took, but grew very slowly and with much less vigor. The secret with all Hoya patella is that without very high humidity it will do very poorly.
