More Hoya blooms
I have a few more Hoyas that are blooming. One large leafed species is in bloom with at least eight or nine peduncles on a three or four foot section of bare vine. The flowers are small and only a few are open at a time so it's just not very impressive. I should try and get some photos of all the peduncles but as for flowers I think I will only take a few single flower macro shots.
This little Hoya species was initially collected on the island of Sulawesi, it came to me from Apodagis in Thailand a few years ago. I have to admit that I fell in love with this Hoya the moment I first saw a photo. The leaves are quite fleshy with raised veins and the plant seems to do very well growing rather dry. This is the first blooming for my plant so I expect more flower buds in the future, a few buds may have dropped due to the potting mix staying dry too long. The flower peduncle is slender and about five inches long, I have yet to notice a scent from the blooms but have not checked in the dark.
And because it might be a little while before I add more Hoya flower photos to this thread I will a splash of colour. This is Sinningia speciosa from Cardosa Moriera in the state of Rio de Janeiro in Brazil. What a beautiful plant!
