Valentine's Day Leaves

greedygh0stFebruary 4, 2013

So, I was thinking we should play a game and see how many Valentines we can find in our plants. I can already think of a couple I didn't get shots of tonight, but here's some for starters...


Hoya vitellina (IML 0452)


Hoya sp. aff. biakensis (EPC 498) (this leaf got a little dehydrated, but this plant's foliage has the loveliest silvery wash)


Dischidia diantha (geri)


Scindapsus pictus


Hoya merrillii (IML 0465)


Hoya balaensis (EPC 626) (this heart's scarred but not broken)

I have a couple plants with heart shaped leaves.

Peperomia caperata (actually purchased early by Hubby as a Valentine's Day gift!)

Oops, meant to insert my other heart shaped leaf... Nevermind the dusty leaves! I live a life of shame (cleans plant)

Hoya carnosa 'Chelsea'

Haha. The heart effect can be enhanced by camera angle ;) Which lacunosa is that one?

Great submissions, planto! I was really hoping someone would take a picture of Chelsea since mine isn't that accessible. Tell your husband way to go on the Peperomia - I can't think of a better Valentine than a heart shaped leaf with a romantic shimmer.

GG,this hoya came home in my suitcase a couple trips ago while visiting JJ plant market in Bangkok,so no name.The higher the light the nicer the heart shaped leaves it gets.Its easy to grow and flower,its a must have for those you collect laconosa's.

GG, I am in LOVE with that clone of merrillii! It is to DIE for!

Here are a few...

The "black heart", archboldiana...

I always think curtisii looks like tiny hearts...

Deykeae has a "chiseled" heart...

Of course, kerrii, the sweetheart Hoya...

Variegated kerrii...

I can't resist showing my favorite macrophylla photo...

And I'll post a photo I use every year in the February issue of my local cactus club's newsletter (which I edit...)

Mike I don't believe my plant is lacunosa tove.I have found a nice web page that shows a nice photo of lacunosa tove leaves.

Here is a link that might be useful: Lacunosa tove.
