Beautiful photos of your plants Kelly!

I was excited to see your Hoya scortechinii, that's one I should not have passed up when I had the chance. Does your plant show veining on it's leaves at all? Here's hoping that those buds develop.

The Hoya imbricata that I got last year is starting to grow now but it took a while to settle in. I have one on cork and one on tree fern and they both look happy. Have your plants been mounted on the swamp sticks long?

Thanks! I don't think any other hobby has ever drawn me in like these darn plants!

Jennifer- if you can find the H bella Luis Bois definitely get it! The flowers really are stunning and the foliage is beautiful- literally brightens up the room! Mine is an Exotic Angel. I think cowboyflowerman on eBay carries them sometimes as well.

Mike, I got scorthechinii in last year's DL order. Have already taken one cutting from it and it's grown 3 peduncles. It's budded twice, but has blasted both times. The leaves do have darker veins, but it's kind of subtle due to a sort of stained glass look. Mine have some spots on them as well, but that may be environmental. I love the buds - very irridescent with that pink dot in the middle, but TINY! Will take some leaf photos tomorrow.

I just transferred the imbricata from bark to the Swampstick about a month ago. It was actively growing at the time of transfer and is continuing to grow, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed! The Swampsticks are VERY clever!
