Now Here is Something That I’m Really Excited About!

Hoya engleriana has alway been one of the few Holy Grails that I truly have wanted to flower.  Is it a spectacular Hoya? Not at all!  Is it difficult to grow? You bet!  I tried to grow this plant from a miserable cutting sent from the Liddle Nursery a few years ago and failed.  This time I received a well rooted cutting from my good friend Julie Kennedy, and through a whole bunch of trial and error finally have it growing well.  I was poking around in my grow tent a few days ago and found these well developed buds.  Much more to follow…
