I thought it would be interesting to make a new size comparison photo showing Hoya griffithii against a couple of other Hoya flowers for perspective.
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.

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.
I have just up-loaded a two-month a follow-up to my Hoya praetorii cutting experiment video to You Tube. Here is the Link:

Here are three photos from the greenhouse last night. Click on any to see full-sized. They are the same old bloomers for me, but nice to see them blooming outside of the plant-room in more of a natural environment.
