H. archboldiana Jumbo Red, it's a first time this plant from Joni has peduncle and it is BIG! Got it last summer and did not expect bloom so soon.:)

That is Gorgeous! I do not have this Hoya but it is on my list! I'm visiting Joni at the end of the month and it's great to know she has it. I've seen Denise's pictures of Archie, and just fell in love too. Thank you for sharing. Please show it when it opens!

Gorgeous! If they get any bigger, the plant is going to fall over. ;)

Mine only bloomed the once. It's one I struggle with. I remain hopeful to see those lovely flowers again!

WOW... those are some pretty nice buds!

I had MacG that bloomed for me, big large red flowers; I was so proud when it bloomed, felt like I accomplished something!

So my Arche is done opening its flowers and I love it!
In the early morning it smelled great and it made my day. I took picture on my phone and was showing it to all my coworkers! :)

Well those sure are jaw droppingly beautiful. I think Klea took the words out of my mouth with, "How much more beautiful can a flower get?" I've always loved that marbled look.

Doesn't it seem strange that 'ordinary' people like us can have something so extravagant looking in our homes? Seems like it belongs in a palace.

That is just too cool!! Makes my carnatas look kind of small...
You can really see the relationship to the Stapeliads.
