Those are amazing ... the first time I saw one I didn't think it was a real flower!

I haven't had any to flower yet! I'm brand-new to the Hoya scene, and I've got several new ones from Pepper Greenhouse lately- boy are they cheap! I got a H. nummularioides for $6- the branches were a little over 2 feet long on that one, a H. australis for $6, a H. curtisii for $6, H. pubicalyx 'Pink Silver' for $5, a cummingiana for $6, a multiflora and a kerrii variegated for $6. They are so cheap, but the plants I've gotten so far have been great, and well worth it! Just a heads-up for my fellow Hoya lovers!

GT - your hoyas are beautiful. I especially like the yellow one - yellow being my favorite color. And the fact that it is different - like me

I have just acquired a few small hoyas. Haven't kept them for YEARS.
What do they like? Dry? Sun?

Laminae, I keep mine in shade, but high light, not too much water and other than that I leave them be... easy as cupcakes
