My Experiences With Hoya obscura Part Two

After losing my first plant, I picked up a couple more cuttings over the years, but had pretty much the same experience with these as I did my first. There was just a general failure to thrive and a gradual loss of the plant. Enter Naomi my friend from this summer, who actually lives nearby, and gave me a cutting of her Hoya obscura, which rooted quickly in nothing but coconut chips. The cutting already had a peduncle, and as I have always said, those cuttings with old peduncles can bloom really early, and that is exactly what happened here.
