Happy August 1st – Let’s Celebrate With Hoya kanyakumariana

After this summer has passed, Hoya kanyakumariana will be my oldest Hoya that I have never started over.  It is one of my all time favorites and the one plant that I will never give away or take a cutting from.  I received it as a small cutting from Melanie Myers of Tennessee way back in the summer of 2008. Below you will see two comparison photos from its first flowering in 2009 to what it looks like today.
