They're kind of the color of a nice ripe grapefruit, too. Or it looks so from the picture. Gorgeous! They look super downy too, like baby ducks. I would squeal in delight if I saw those in person.

The grow light has made the flowers a bit lighter than the are in person.
I did kinda did get a bit excited when :I looked up and saw them open.I had stopped looking every day because they were talking so long(over 6 weeks to open).

Congratulations on the praetorii blooms Cindy.
I find this Hoya to be so exotic, the way it presents it's leaves and of course the flowers. I do wish the flowers scent were about 10X stronger but I guess they make up for the lack of scent with their uniqueness.

When they smell lovely, faintly, it feels like you and the Hoya are having a private exchange. :)

So beautiful! They look like upside-down ballerina tutus. Thanks - another one to add to my must-have list!
