Does anyone here do Hoyas?


I was just wondering if anyone here kept Hoyas. I was just bitten by the Hoya bug, and I have a Krimson Queen and a Krimson Princess so far. Thinking about looking on Ebay, but I haven't quite decided yet.

Yep I love hoyas, but tend to lean towards the smaller leaf ones like the chouke. My chouke is about to bloom and I am so excited for this, my first hoya blooms! I also have the hindu rope green and variegated..and a couple others I dont know the name of. I got bit by the pepperomia bug when I started with hoya also..lol

Ooh- you'll have to put up some pics when it blooms! I love the clusters of flowers- so pretty! What do the leaves on the chouke look like? I don't think I've ever seen one. Not that I've seen that many or anything. lol

L4B, I like to suggest checking Walmart and the box stores, they usually carry different hoyas at a reasonable price, and you will get a nice pot full.

Mary, your 'Shooting Star' looks awesome! I lost some as well this past cold season (like H. linearis). not sure, but I think I kept them too dry :-/

Hey loving..the hoya chouke has small roundish leaves with silver speckles on it. White flowers with an orange ish center. I have another that has small leaves that are sort of oval shape with streaks through it but I am not sure if that one is hoya or pepperomia.

Mary in your last post the first pic has a plant with s small leaf with what looks like lines or viens through it(3 on a leaf) what is that plant please?
