Great to hear from you, pepeuve! Your Hoyas look more magnificent every year.

In case anyone here is unfamiliar with pepeuve, every year he provides excellent demonstrations of how Hoya carnosa, a plant this is often misunderstood to require years to reach blooming size, can actually form brand new peduncles on a cutting and bloom within 6 months. At least, in the ideal conditions provided by Malaga, Spain.

Of course, not all of us can create those conditions in our homes, but it is a very good lesson. We might wait 10 years for a Hoya to bloom, but this isn't necessarily due to the nature of the plant itself. Not that anyone should feel guilty about not getting a plant to bloom within a small time frame, but I personally find it inspiring that Hoyas want to bloom ASAP. :P

Sorry about the mini-lecture. I just wanted to update newcomers about some of the neat things you can find on the blog.

Photographs can distort color somewhat, but can you see the approximate color of pepeuve's leaves? If you want yours to bloom quickly, you need to increase the light until your leaves are a similar lime-green color. :)

Hello people:

Hello greedyghost:

It's a huge pleasure to hear from you. A magnificent chat talking about my humble person. You explained very well what sun rise is necessary for our wax plants bloom soon. These days are blooming three beautiful specimens mine and I hope you have seen them in my last posts and I invite all people to see them and visit my blogs. One of them, "Mihoyacarnosa" give some advice to see our hoyas bloom soon.

From Spain, Best Regards

@ teengardener

Click on the U.S. flag to the right and the auto-translate will kick in. It translates "Hoya carnosa" as "basins fleshy" which is quite amusing, but just ignore that.

Basically, the post shows a picture of 4 carnosas that were quite small when they were planted, and, after only 2 years, have covered a HUGE fence!

The plants are east facing and receive 4 hours of morning light. Pepeuve feels that morning light is the best for Hoya carnosa (as well as its close relatives, like publicalyx) and that this is a good demonstration.

I have to agree. Most of my carnosas are in east windows, right up against the glass, and as soon as I moved them there, they bloomed within a year. (It takes the variegated ones slightly longer).

He also points out that there are visible differences between the leaves growing at the bottom and those growing at the top, both in size and color. That's how, when someone posts a picture of a common Hoya like carnosa, we can tell what light it was grown in.

@ pepeuve

I know some people find it frustrating to try and translate other languages, but I think it's very important.

The Hoya community is so very small - we cannot afford to ignore the useful observations and experiments made in a different language.

Thank you for periodically coming to visit us, even though we don't speak Spanish. ^_^'

Hi people

I'm sorry but my English is very bad.

A superb explanation that gives us greedyghost and I must confess that your advice is worthy to apply.

I donôt remember how can I include a photo in this post.

Itôs about a publicalyx silver pink 18/24 months old (I donôt remember) and already has 4 new peduncles.

Tanks greedyghost

Regards

I think this might be the photograph you are referring to, pepeuve?

This is a H. publicalyx Pink Silver cutting that was just under 2 years old when it opened up buds for the first time.

I also wanted to post the cool picture of the 2 year old Hoya carnosas we were discussing earlier, for those who don't like clicking on links.

Can you even believe this? :)
