Another 'Royal Flush' Sighting

monet_gMay 13, 2011

I, also, found an EA Lacunosa "Royal Flush" today at Lowe's here in Michigan. It appears from other posts by Denise and Odyssey, that EA is shipping a lot of them out, into many regions. If you're interested, keep a look out.

Surprisingly, the plant was in need of water. I watered it well, hung it up and was very, very pleasantly surprised to see a developing peduncle. It's grown to about 1/4 of an inch.

I wonder though, is there a point, the bloom growth gets to, where it won't blast?

TIA

I, for one, am interested! I just wish I lived closer to Lowe's and HD. Gonna look really well over their plants next time I go ^_^ !

Very good! I forgot to mention that I bought this hoya because of its beauty even though the tag just said tropical foliage. I did some research online and felt sure I had a Royal Flush. As I went to take the tag off, lo and behold, Royal Flush was printed on the reverse side! I had never seen an EA tag like that before.

Thanks for your post odyssey. I'm seeing other tags like that so just maybe the plant's name is on the back of others too.

Was just up in AL today and they Lowes up there had Royal Flush. Looks like there are popping up all over. I picked up a really big pot of nummerlaria (sp?) so was really excited about that.

Yay, Dee! I'd love to get one of those, too. "Nummularioides" - what a mouth full!
Maybe with the warmer weather EA is releasing more varieties to local sources.

I got a Royal Flush at Lowe's in my area back in March. I was so excited, too! It's doing well, putting on new growth, but no peduncles yet. The other lacunosa, however, has about 20 peduncles, and I got it about the same time as the RF. One looks like it's just about to open, so I'm anxiously watching and waiting! lol
