Ciao, Bella!

A couple of days ago I recieved the Hoya Bella, albomarginate form. This is not on my final list of hoyas I want to collect (trying to cut down, very unsucessfully, on my endless hoya buying), however it was on my wanted list for a very long time and it was fairly cheap, so I bought it anyway. I reckon I can put it in with the regular bella (shown by it) and then it'll be "one" plant.

Type: Leaves approx. 4cm long and lanceolate (arrow shaped). Flowers white with a pink corona. Smell very faintly of hyacinth.
A hanging plant, that I rooted easily in a Jiffy 7 with bottom heat, that is apparently a slow grower but a good bloomer. Fairly thirsty and happy in dappled light.

I had the same idea to put two different plants in the same pot. Just to save some space for more Hoyas :-)
