My History with Hoya imperialis Palawan Part V

Within a couple of months of losing that first peduncle, Hoya imperialis Palawan developed another one, and this time I moved the plant out of its tent and put it on a windowsill in the regular house.  This would have been in late April of this year.  It started to bud up, and I could hardly hide my excitement.  The buds got to about 1/4 inch in size, and began to yellow after watering.  At first I tried to kid myself that it wasn’t happening, but alas they yellowed further and all fell off.  This was the notorious Hoya imperialis bud blast that I almost never experienced with my super Rauschii seedling clone.
