Beautiful Red Leaves

lightning96(4)March 7, 2012

Just wanted to post some pics of beautiful red leaves, and hope others will post their new growth pics as well!

Hoya bicknelli:

Hoya sp. aff. paziae

Hoya sp. Ban Ngon Ngoy

Both of these huge leaves are new growth!

They're very pretty.

I have a H. cinnamomifolia that had red leaves, but since I repotted her in new, more porus potting mix her leaves are turning greener.

Lighting64 your red leaves are gorgeous!! Looks like I'm going to have to add these to my wish list. May I ask which reliable source did you get them from?

Hey Beth. Great idea for a thread!

I've been so swamped I don't really have time to take any serious pictures but I loved your theme so much I snapped some quick (embarrassingly) sloppy shots.

Too bad you didn't come up with this idea a few months earlier. My plants looked like tropical birds of paradise all winter, but they're kind of dragging atm.

I love all those red leaves GG, some of those are so stunning! Thanks for sharing. I wish you could share the species names for those pics, but I understand if you're too busy.

My Hoya DS-70 is covered in dark red (almost purple on the newest growth; a little hard to see in this photo) leaves. The new growth on my Thanksgiving Cactus was more red a couple weeks ago but I failed to take a photo sooner, so it's more green than red in this photo.

GG I love the look of those photo groupings. Hoya surigaoensis is my favorite of your red leafed beauties.

Thank you Diptic! Yeah, sometimes you need a little Hoya montage. Hoya surigaoensis really is a stand out Hoya. You know how it is... all Hoyas are equal, but some Hoyas are more equal than others. :P

Planto, the red leaves on my Schlumbergera also caught my eye, so I'm glad you posted a picture!

greedyghost,
No problem! Hubby thought it was an interesting contrast with the red and green, seems more like Christmas than Thanksgiving though. :P

lol I really wonder about the person who assigned them all holiday names. And why I can't find holiday themed cultivars! Where's my Schlumbergera truncata Golden Turkey?
