My indoor Hoya is blooming indoors right now, can you see the nectar drop?

Photos taken with my new Canon PowerShot S5 IS.

Congratulation for your new camera. That's a beautiful shot, and a gorgeous bloom.

I have a 5 years Hoya that never bloomed because I was too generous with it and put it in a big container. Later I found out it likes potbound, and now I'm afraid to disturb it.

I should know by now not to move my photos in my Photobucket after posting. LOL
Here is that other shot.

Thanks gg and Mariana, I do have mine rootbound, in a south facing window. Its not fully covered with blooms but a few right now. This is the first time I've seen the nectar though.

I have 2 mature hoya plants that I inherited from my grandmother in law, and after some trial and error I found that although they like to be pot bound, the most important factor is bright direct sunlight. Both of my plants, as soon as they were moved into a south facing window, consistently bloom. Right now I am enjoying the wonderful scent that they give off in the evening.

Sharon: Why don't you like moving your pictures to Photobucket before posting? I've just learned how to post there and was wondering if there is a reason I shouldn't be using them? Thanks. Marg

Marg, oh I love Photobucket.... however, I usually upload right into an designated album but forgot this time, therefore when you move a photo to a different album, you break the link.

Thanks for the comments. ;)

Pretty flowers, but no other plant makes me sneeze more and if there is more then one bloom I have to cut them off. They are far more fragrant at night.
