I bought two cuttings in April 2011 as sp. PES-01. It was also known as Hoya sp. Umphang.
They had just a few very small roots which were very fragile. I cut one of them in half, making one cutting consisting of only one node. Then put all three in a pot with 50% soil, . . . → Read More: litophytica
A bud. No work done in Photoshop (except the “water mark”).
A smaller bud.
I got this precious one autumn 2011. Rooted, fine and beautiful, with phytocertificate and all:
Then I almost killed it so I had to re-root it. Now it has started to grow, but slowly…

Since then it hasn’t grown much, maybe because I haven’t cared for it much to give it more light, but . . . → Read More: acuta var. hendersonii IML 1462
Even though the non-miniature form of Hoya lobbii can get small leaves also, the difference is (or might be…) that it’s quite easy to keep the leaves smaller on this one.

Hoya Rachel is the sister to Hoya Rebecca.

Hoya Rebecca is the sister of Hoya Rachel. The leaves are green in the winter and when the spring sun arrives – they get red and stays red for a long time into the next winter. Really nice! New leaves have a more Santa Claus red color.
