    One of my favorite Hoya, just wish it wasn't such a glacially slow grower for me.

    Only 3 species, currently. Used to have a couple others but gave them away. Regretably, they simply take up too much room for an apt dweller who also happens to collect orchids, carnivorous plants, cacti/succulents, .......

    There actually are several others I'd love to have -- including one that gets very large flowers -- but should that ever happen I'll have to figure out what gets kicked out to the curbside to make room.

    Many of the leaves are green or at least much more so. I'm assuming the red -- as with the purple blush catts can get -- is due to the amount/intensity of light it receives. Considering it aggravatingly slow growth (for me, at least), the red color does provide appeal to offset the slow growth issue.

    I have a Rope Hoya with the curly leaves that I just love. It blooms most of the time too, getting to be a pretty good specimen plant. I guess I'll have to get some pictures some day to post. It was soooo slow to start, but after a few years, it is pretty vigorous. At least they don't take up so much room if they are slow.

    I really like the flowers on yours!
