Actually a beautiful plant. I did not want to get it seeing as I allready have H. weebella/dickinsonia and have now actually run out of hoya space (or any other plant for that matter!). However, an old lady in Scotland needed a Bella and therefore it's now sat in my lounge. It might get a small haircut before it goes away...
There are flowers, either open or forming, all over this plant. I'm guessing it's been sat in a nice warm greenhouse, and not in someone's cold front room! The flowers smell like delicate hyacinth which is really rather attractive. It was sat next to me last night while I faffed on the computer and I suddenly caught a whiff of it - very subtle I think.
Ok, so it's unfair to call any plant a beast, but I mean more in terms of the fact it has absolutely humungous leaves!!! For some reason I always thought this plant had much smaller leaves, and it literally has SAUCERS - it and the lauterbachii are now in contention for the bigger leaves, and it's winning!!! The leaves are 10 cm long and probably as much wide - crazy plant!
