Hoya pubicalyx ‘Black Dragon’

The first time I bloomed Hoya pubicalyx ‘Black Dragon’ it was under grow lights and was slightly disapointed that it did not bloom darker.  Well now I have bloomed it outside in the greenhouse and it bloomed even lighter than before.  I would be interested if anyone blooms this plant in full sunshine if it would indeed bloom “Black.”  Still a nice plant however, and my understanding is that it is in the process of being renamed.  These photos were taken last night and this morning with a point and shoot.

Hoya Pottsii Sp. ‘Chiang Mai’ with More To Follow

I purchased this plant as Hoya merrillii around five years ago, and finally after all this time have found out its true identity!  I knew that although similar to merrillii, it did not match any online photos that I had seen of that species.  I have always  loved the plant, because it has some of the nicest leaves and the best form of any of the Hoyas that I grow.  Here are a couple of photos of the flowers just beginning to open on Hoya Pottsii Sp. Chiang Mai with more to follow in the coming days.
