Hoya cv. 'Minibelle'

Minibelle is in full bloom and I find has one of the nicer scents, especially for sleeping at night!

Hoya kerri

Finally it opened and looking stunning! It just opened last night and I wanted to get the picture before it started to drip badly. Its a bit of a messy hoya bloom but worth it.

Hoya cv. Minibelle blooms

One of my favourites and probably the plant I have the most pictures of is this one. Minibelle has started growing like crazy for the last month or more. The bloom is round and cute and a very pretty. This one is always a dependable bloomer this time of year.

Hoya fungii buds

Hoya fungii is going to bloom soon. The plant is fairly small with 2 peduncles growing. I think this will be a larger bloom and I am anticipating the bloom so I can photograph it some more!

Hoya kerrii buds

Here are a few buds from Hoya kerrii. I am quite looking forward to this one blooming, mess and all as its very drippy! It hasn't bloomed for me in 2 years so a bit of a wait since the last time.

Hoya pubicalyx 'Pink Silver'

Finally after 4 years, this pubicalyx decided to bloom. At the moment there is about 5 peduncles but only 2 plumped up to bloom and the one blasted. Not much of a scent to my nose but quite a pretty bloom and colour too.

Hoya carnosa

The first Hoya carnosa bloom on this particular plant. It blasted last year and didn't try to rebloom until this spring.

Hoya australis

Been awhile since i have posted any bloom pics as its been awhile since anything has bloomed! Finally after the first bud blast, Hoya australis decided to go to full term and bloom for me. Nice scent and pretty flowers. If you look close in the first photo, another set of buds have started to form even before these ones were open. I am not sure the subspecies of this one but the leaves are pubescent on both sides with twining growth.

A Few Hoya Blooms

A few blooming at the moment: Obscura in the top picture, curtisii in the middle and nummularioides at the bottom. Curtisii will out scent all of them, especially at night!

Hoya carnosa

Well I shouldn't say there has been no blooms. This Hoya carnosa is trellised and sitting next to a double decker set of grow lights. To my surprise, its decided to bloom. I still don't really like the scent but I sure love its bloom. It has more of a pink cast than how it photographed but only a very light pink.

Unique leaves

Happy New Year! Since there are not too many hoyas blooming this time of year, I decided to take some pics of some of the weird and wacky leaves, especially the Hoya compacta leaves. The second pic is of Hoya compacta variegata. The last 2 photos of Hoya compacta (green) and the first photo is of Hoya obscura. Some of the leaves on it have become very red veined from the grow lights. Its rather pretty and showy.
