lovingmy4babies, I can so relate. I was bitten last year with the hoya bug. I have the sweetheart hoya, and variegated hindu rope that managed to stay alive over the winter. I want to get the variegated sweetheart hoya next. I've not seen blooms of yet but know they will be a knockout show and can't wait. I'm going to our New Orleans Spring Botanical Show this Saturday and it is on the list.

Here are some of my hoyas..well all of them..lol I lost a couple over winter also. I just loved the linearis but lost it.

hoya 'chouke' the one climbing all over and about to bloom and the hanging down one is hoya 'hindu rope'. I need to repot these into their own pots but am waiting till after chouke gets done blooming..this is the first time seeing a hoya bloom!



This hoya Marlea . I also have string of pearls growing on the back side in this pot but its pretty small yet.


This one is a mystery to me...it has leaves that are tinged pink while young then as they get older they get green with a pinkish edge and the leaves feel soft and smooth. Any idea what it is?


Anticipating hoya 'chouke' blooms soon!

I have a NOID starter Hoya I bought from HD but that's it so far. After the (large and expensive) beauties I saw at the nursery I want to buy a few more. Thinking of getting my Christmas present very very early lol.

I love the pictures!

LOL thanks Bali. I took a cutting of Tricolor from a friends plant a few months ago, and it hasn't grown a single leaf, so when I saw one at Walmart, I couldn't pass it up. I know I should have more patience but I had the cutting outside all summer and it didn't do anything.

LOL when I first saw the 10 years part, I was about to throw the cutting away. Of course wouldn't do that, but I was going to tuck it in a dark corner and forget about lol. I don't know if that would be any better?

I promise I won't. My mom would be really mad at me if I threw away a perfectly good cutting or let it disappear into oblivion lol. The 3 years reminds me of epiphyllums. That's not as bad as I was expecting. My mom's friend has a Tricolor that is over 10 years old, but it has never bloomed because it never gets that much light. This year it actually put out a lot of growth. I would love to see pictures of your hoyas

She doesn't. She never puts any of her plants outside despite me telling her they would grow better outside. She actually has 2 crotons that bloomed for her indoors and they only receive a little morning sun. I put all of my plants on the northside of my house because that's where my patio is unfortunately.
