Hoya Shepherdii

I have to thank Frank from Epric for this one, as he got it into bud before it started to bloom. Smells gorgeous :)

Hoya bella back at its beautiful best

This plant has become one of my most faithful bloomers. But I have lots of buds coming! Hopefully more flowers soon!

Hoya Australis

This came out the other day. It's slightly unusual because the red inside is barely visible. I think this is because it's an australis ssp australis. It flowered for over a week (quite long for this plant!) and smelled rather lovely.

My Hoya lasiantha/praetorii buds are going yellow again... Will I EVER see it flower?

Oh Dear...

Yes, it's that time of the year again. Time for my poor hoyas to die :(
A combination of bad light and cold temperatures really doesn't seem to work for these poor plants. This is my Hoya kerrii variegated, which has sadly succumbed to the bad conditions.
This hoya holliana has never been happy. I don't think it rooted well, and so has gone downhill.

And finally my hoya aff. obscura. I feel bad about this plant, I really don't think it settled in very well, I got it in August and I don't think it made the transition from greenhouse to cold house!
But there is good news... my Hoya praetorii is budding up again! I'm hoping that this time it'll get to the end... We will see!
