Final Day With Hoya sp. Sulawesi No. 1

Today, I end my discussion of Hoya sp. Sulawesi No. 1. It is a really nice Hoya that is somewhat easier to grow and flower than Hoya sulawesiana. As it becomes more widely available, it is definitely a plant worthy enough to add to the collection. The only drawbacks that I have discovered is that the flowers are extremely heavy nectar drippers. This can create quite a sticky mess depending on where you keep the plant. Unlike many of the Hoyas in the Acanthostemma Section, this one did not have a strong scent of caramel or melted butter.
