    Default Hoya tsangii

    As far as hoya flowers go, I would have to say these are far from impressive, IMO. Each flower is maybe the same diameter as the eraser on top of a pencil. Its only real saving grace is the fragrance -- smells like butter cream to me.






    Those aren't water drops on the flowers -- rather flowers produce a lot of nectar. (With some species, I understand, this can be a problem indoors as some types are such prodigious producers that they drip all over anything beneath them.)

    With higher light the leaves get a pnk/red cast.



    No real reason for this pic -- just liked the reflection in the nectar drop.

    Oh wow....cool hoya! Mine is pink looking with tiny waxy flowers in a ball shape. I didn't know they had scent?! I'll have to stick my nose in mine and see if it smells good too. (you learn something new everyday!)
    Thanks for sharing....let me know if you'd like to trade hoya pieces someday.
