    Default Hoya again

    My Hoya is blooming again. Thought I'd post a couple closer pics of a flower -- in these shots you can see the fringe/fuzz along the petals

    Default Cool!

    Those are really cool.

    I have one that I started from a cutting about 4 years ago that bloomed for the first time a couple of weeks ago.

    Hoya carnosa

    Default Whole plant!

    Whole plant this time.

    It's in a six inch pot with an 8" basket over the top with a bamboo trellis stuck down inside.

    Is that what the flowers look like?? I have one outside but I've never seen it bloom. How long after established do they usually take to bloom?

    I've heard 3-10 years for cuttings. Some people these plants are as difficult to bloom as some orchids *GRIN*.

    I've heard the same thing. Yet, rather to my amusement, this is the 2nd time mine has bloomed for me and I received it as a cutting from a friend sometime within a year period. [Can't remember if it was still '06 or if it was '07]

    Mine is H. carnosa 'Krimson Queen'. Overall a much smaller plant than Clint's at this point. Main difference -- mine has varigated foliage w/ new foliage having reddish/pink blushes/highlights.


    Connie, if memory serves me correctly, hoyas like to be potbound

    Btw, Clint, just in case you didn't know ... don't cut off the "spike"/node. After blooming, it will later bloom again from the same area/node.
