Growing Hoya maingayi Part Six

I was so excited to see those early buds, but within 2 weeks I was crushed when the buds began to turn red (This is almost always a sign that you will lose the buds). It was not long before my suspicions were confirmed when I touched the tiny buds, and they fell off. I moved the plant to another area of the tent and promptly almost forgot about it. Within 3 months of the buds blasting, I was blown away when two additional peduncles formed and this time the buds started growing in earnest. I was extremely careful to barely water the plant this time as I believe that it was the watering that caused me to lose the first buds. This time around the buds actually grew well on both peduncles; I started to gain confidence!
