Hoya heuschkeliana (Yellow)

The peduncle on the Hoya heuschkeliana cutting decided to plump up when i was rooting it. I thought it would blast but it decided to go ahead and bloom. It smells like butterscotch to me, especially at night. The scent seems very similar to Hoya DS-70. It is very tiny but cute. It was one of the cutting received in the David Liddle order.

Hoya shepherdii

Well Hoya shepherdii made it to bloom finally. Not sure if the last 2 buds will open, they seem to be taking their time. Its a nice scent and starting to become a fast grower also.

Hoya cv 'Minibelle'

Minibelle was busy doing its thing this year. I counted 11 blooms this year. Needless to say, the bedroom is quite fragrant at night. This is one easy bloomer. Wish they all were!
