I can’t put it off any longer as the plant has flowered and I will begin with the history of the plant. I received a cutting of it in June of 2021 with the tag Hoya GN-01. It rooted right off in coconut husk and seemed to like this medium quite a bit. I transplanted it into a bigger cut after a couple of months and it never faltered.
This Hoya has not been out of flower or bud now for many months. Here is a photo from this morning.
I had to start this one over again last summer as I lost the roots to cold and wet. This time I am growing it as a modified hanging plant in my hanging wire trellis. All photos from this morning.
Good old Hoya mirabilis! She keeps on doing her thing even though I pay very little attention to it any longer.
Hoya krohniana is doing well and putting on prodigious growth in the basement tent. Here is a photo of some buds from this morning:
My plant is now getting a little bigger and has just flowered for the second time on the old peduncle that came with the cutting when I received it.
I have many of my Hoyas now growing with this hanging wire trellis that I developed and for the most part it is working out quite well. Here is Hoya soligamiana using the hanging trellis with a clear pot so that I can more easily see when to water.
Hoya soligamiana is another spieces that has come back to me after I lost the roots to rot in 2021. Don’t wait too long to take cuttings of your plants if you suspect that root rot has taken hold, or you will be likely to lose that plant.
Just a small rooted cutting but it has flowered on two peduncles and so I grabbed a photo this morning.
I came about as close to losing this one as you can get, but my 2 leaf remaining cutting that did nothing for months finally pulled though and flowered. This is a very beautiful flower that only lasts for about a day and a half.
