Hoya brevialata

Hoya brevialata is a great Hoya!  It is also commonly available at many box stores and is very often mislabeled.  Exotic Angel puts out some wonderful baskets, and I highly recommend that you pick one up.  Many people find that they need to re-pot all of the EA Hoyas that they buy.  I have never found that to be the case where I live.  I have had very good luck leaving them right where they are.  Generally you can look for blossoms on many EA plants about 1 year after purchasing.  The brevialata pictured is from a two year old plant near the end of the summer.  It spent that particular summer in the greenhouse with very positive results – a real stunner – especially when photographed from underneath!
