Last summer was a disappointing one for Hoya curtisii; it rained too much, and the plant never grew at all. What do I find on the plant in early February? A peduncle full of buds! Not only is it the wrong time of the year, but the plant has been growing almost in the dark of a northwest window for months. When I discovered the buds I put the plant into a grow tent where the buds opened over night. I was able to capture what may be the world’s first time-lapse of the flowers opening on H. curtisii, which I hope to have up on YouTube in the near future.
