Hoya Nicholsoniae

puglvr1(9b central FL)March 27, 2010

Does anyone know if this hoya is an early bloomer or more of "hardly" blooms hoya? I have one from Gardino's and its doing well...lots of reddish leaves so I know its getting plenty of light...is there such a thing as too much light with this hoya? I was wondering if anyone has had good luck getting this one to bloom for them? I'm not complaining as I did get this one for the pretty leaves...but the plant sure looks mature enough to bloom. Also the roots looks pretty snug in the pot...I wonder if I should repot it to a bigger size? Thanks for any tips/suggestions.

Hi Pug,

I've been growing nicholsoniae for quite awhile and I find it blooms early, but it doesn't bloom often. Not for me anyway. But the blooms are beautiful - you'll love them!

Hi Denise, thanks for the response. I guess I will just have to be patient a little longer...I've not been blessed with this virtue,lol...At least the leaves are nice to look at, I guess that will have to do for now.

Hoyas like to be rootbound. You can change the soil to newer soil, but I would not suggest potting up.
