I Finally Got It!

Hi everyone,

I couldn't pass it up. Joni has Royal Flush on her April sale and now chalk up one more for my collection :). My Ruby Sue and Sno Caps cuttings are doing extremely well. I just spotted a point of new growth on Sno Caps.

Well, better get moving and water some plants. I'm glad I can start feeding them again (MG Tomato Food). Maybe that'll get some blooms for me on fungii lol.

Congratulations, Brad! :D I'm so happy for you. I just found my first Sno Caps blooms yesterday and it totally made up for my discovery of a small mealy invasion a few feet away. Sometimes I think they should manually plant a mealybug on everyone's first Hoya, just so we don't have that false grace period where we believe we'll never get infected because we're too smart.

Anywayyyyyy. I think lacunosas are awesome and everyone should have every cultivar. If you just have one, it gets lonely. That is my stance and I'm sticking to it.

Thank you, GG! Congrats on the Sno Caps blooms! I really miss the fragrance and I hope mine get to bloom soon. Royal Flush isn't in my collection yet, physically, but it will be soon :).

I agree that everyone should have at least one lacunosa in their collection, unless they find the scent overpowering lol. When I had my first lacunosa, now deceased if you recall, mom smelled the blooms and loved it. I was surprised since she has a sensitive nose, but we all liked it. In case you were wondering, I have not yet picked out a name yet for Royal Flush lol.

Congrats Brad,

I got Royal Flush from Joni last month, it was first one I received in new smaller pot and it looks great. It is growing like mad, and I had to pot it up last weekend, as it was drying very fast! It's my second lacunosa, and most likely not the last one!

You know, at first I could barely tell the difference between my Royal Flush and Ruby Sue. But as they mature in the same conditions, it becomes more and more pronounced. It's cool.

I have this one flat where all my lacunosas live, getting tangled up in each other and every time I look at it, it reminds me of that awesome tangled mass of Dischidias when Denise took me on the best field trip ever. I may never have a greenhouse, but at least I can create a mini overgrown carpet. That gives me the lols.

I heard a peep from her the other day, so she's still kickin' but I don't know much more than that. Maybe she'll chime in. :) I was kind of hoping for an update myself!
