From right to left, here is Hoya Rebecca, Hoya platycaulis, and Hoya multiflora.
Here are the flowers of Hoya aff. Bella PES-03 and Hoya vitiensis next to each other.
Not a very good photo, but Hoya linearis did manage to open up her flowers this week,
I think I invented a new method of hanging plants, and, or trellising them. I have a couple of recent videos talking about the process, but here is a Hoya linearis hanging in one. I think this will be a game changer in how I deal with some of my smaller Hoyas that need to be trellised, but are not yet ready to moved up to a larger pot.
Our cat Murdoch is a sly devil, as soon as my back is turned he seems to find a way into my grow-tent. I think he, like Hoyas does best with warmth and humidity!
My weak looking Hoya cutis-porcelana plant managed to get a record, for me, of nine flowers on a single peduncle, which was kind of exciting.
It is so gray and dreary here in Vermont right now, it is hard to believe that this Hoya pubicalyx Pink Dragon mustered the energy to flower on the windowsill. The flower color is very muted because of the lack of light, but I think that it made the scent more intense. Last night while sitting in the living room, I kept smelling something very sweet and it turned out to be these flowers.
I used to believe that Hoya linearis was difficult, but it really is not much harder than your average Hoya. The main thing that it appreciates is a little humidity in the air, but other than that it is pretty straight forward.
These gorgeous, Jurassic, tactile, wonderful leaves are what really set this Hoya apart from other Hoyas. I just love this plant. Here are a couple of photos from this week:
Hoya Aff. clemensiorum (IML-1752) is definitely one of my top ten favorite Hoyas. It flowered this week which is far easier than getting it to grow leaves!
