After failing with my first two rooted cuttings, my friend Jimmy from NC sent me a third specimen in 2018. My plant kept going downhill, and just before it was ready to expire, I pulled it out of its pot and tied it on to my very large Hoya imbricata mount. It surprised me there and actually started to grow, and even went so far as to forming a peduncle, before it fell off. Below the plant on a mount:
There are difficult Hoyas and then there extremely difficult Hoyas; Hoya undulata falls into the latter category. I failed with my first plant obtained from AH Hoyas in 2016, and on my second one in 2017. Below the foliage of the plant:
This plant used to be a shy bloomer, but now wants to flower all the time. Here are the best photos of its new flush of flowers:
It took me 3 years to flower Hoya sp. Perak Teddy Bear the first time, as I rotted the roots too many times. This is a plant that is extremely susceptible to over watering, and should only be watered when totally dry. After cutting up my old plant, and selling it all off, I kept a cutting, and this is its first flowering at 8 months of age.
Hoya manipurensis must have been pollinated by fungus gnats, which I am plagued with this year. So with every cloud there is usually a silver lining!
Here you go from left to right: Hoya imperialis, Hoya macgillivrayi, and Hoya onychoides.
I don’t know for sure how many other people have done it, but my Hoya manipurensis is just covered in seed pods.
I love the flowers on this plant especially when they are just opening. Look how green they are!
I’ve had this plant for a number of years now, and while I lose interest in a number of Hoyas, I still have this one around. So I guess that says something!
First Hoya amicabilis flowers last a long time – around 2 weeks; second the flowers get better looking every day they are open until the fall off. By that I mean that the flowers open a little more and get brighter yellow every day. This plant wants to flower more than any other Hoya from the earliest of age. Below my much improved plants. I even love the foliage now.
