Life happened, but I'm back now

tigerdawn(7)January 1, 2013

Hey everybody! I had a rough time this past year or so with my old job (workplace bullies suck) and my health (autoimmune disorders suck), but I'm doing much better now and I have time and energy to care for and enjoy my plants once again. Yay!

We visited some friends this evening and I had too much caffeine, so I'm wide awake in the middle of the night- perfect time to babble on about Hoyas to you guys!

Miraculously, most everthing survived. Here is a list of my current Hoyas, plus the ones I just ordered from Joni since she's phasing out her plants. *=just ordered

I made a spreadsheet with all the plants and their origins and growing conditions. I used the info from the 2011 Liddle Catalog,, and I'm still missing some info and I've forgotten what other sites there are. Suggestions are welcome.

It is good to be back. :-)

Welcome back! It's nice to be reading your posts again, and I'm really glad you're feeling better. :)

I have to admit I was feeling motivated to snap up some of Joni's remaining potted plants, myself. But more on that in another thread as I don't want to take over yours. ;)

Welcome back! That is quite an impressive list of hoyas, all shapes, sizes and bloom colors. That spreadsheet must have taken some time! ~ Mary

Welcome back, TigerDawn!

It's good to see you here again! You've amassed quite the collection and congrats on the new plants. :-).

I must admit, you're more organized than I about my plants. Happy New Year!
