Hoya sp. UT-033 did not do much for its first couple of years with no indication that it would ever produce a peduncle. I finally pulled it out of its pot late in 2015 and discovered, as I frequently seem to, that the roots were rotten. I finally took cuttings and restarted it in hydroton using the semi-hydro method. Below the flowers of Hoya sp. UT-033:
I received this plant as a small rooted cutting from Julie Kennedy in 2013. I planted it into my regular mix; it grew a little and languished a lot. Below the buds of Hoya sp. UT-033:
Uthai Treesukhon is a Thai Hoya collector who issued many of his plants an accession numbers and Hoya sp. UT-033 is one of those Hoyas. I’m assuming it is endemic to Thailand, but have no real information on it other than its accession number.
Hoya sp. UT-033 took a very long time to flower so we will spend at least a week with it. Below the beautiful foliage the plant:
I have started a new Hoya oblongacutifolia plant because the mother plant has gotten too big for me, but I’m giving it one last hurrah this summer by letting it go wild in my portable greenhouse. I love this plant despite its smelly nature! Here are some flowers growing seven feet in the air on the ceiling:
With the summer of 2019 drawing to its inevitable close, Hoya vitellina IML 1348 throws up some blooms to let me know it has enjoyed its time outside.
I love this trouble free Hoya relative that happily lives out its life growing in nothing but sphagnum moss. Here is a photo of its tiny flowers taken this morning:
Hoya RHM-009 is loving being outside in my portable greenhouse for the summer. I cleaned all of the cobwebs off from the plant for this photo. There is something about August that bring the spiders out in full force to cover all of the plants with their webs.
Every year I throw up a photo of Hoya kanyakumariana. It has managed to flower under not ideal conditions of my windowsill this summer, but I need to take the time to re-pot this Hoya as I think it would greatly appreciate it.
This is a Hoya that is so common that it has almost no value in the marketplace, which is too bad since it makes such a great specimen!
