I want to see pictures of everyone's HOYAS!

alavoneluvhoyaJune 5, 2012

One of my fav things about the forum are the pictures of everyone's hoyas. I dont think I am the only one who thinks this way. So lets have some fun and post our hoya pictures! I will post a few for now and take pics of all of mine today and post more. I have 3 kids including a newborn so it becomes a challenge sometime to find time to do the fun stuff for me!

I only have two, but I don't mind sharing photos:

H. carnosa 'Krimson Princess'

H. carnosa 'Krimson Queen'

You have quite the collection, I'd love to have as many indoor plants as you have!

Some of my favorites...

H. archboldiana, which I affectionally call "Archie"...

H. australis ssp. tenuipes with its pretty bronze new foliage...

... it's a crazy bloomer in the fall...

H. callistrophylla...

...and it's flowers...

H. deykeae, one I wouldn't part with for $1000!...

H. fungii...

...and it's lovely flowers...

Tiny H. hueschkeliana and it's lantern-shaped flowers...

The very common incurvula or brevialata (whichever it is...)

...and it's sweet little flowers...

H. kerrii, in all its commonness (a word??), I still love it!...

... and those beautiful, drippy flowers...

H. lobbii...

My ever-popular macrophylla...

...and it's demure flowers...

H. meliflua blew me away with it's VERY variable flowers...

H. mitrata grows leaves stacked close together, like a cabbage...

H. sp. Nong Nooch...

H. pallida's very textured but fairly small leaves...

I love the H. pubicalyx cultivars for their very rich colored flowers... 'RHP'...

...'Pink Silver' flowers...

Oh, but look at 'PS' leaves!...

H. vanuatuensis' leaves are a little ho-hum, but I love the flowers...

H. verticillata's flowers are potently fragrant and it flowers frequently...

And this H. villosa I got a couple years ago in a trade and it went downhill, but it's still alive and I'm waiting for it to make a comeback...

I think I got carried away...

Alavh..,

Nice collection, you've got some lovely plants.

Planto,

Maybe only 2 NOW, but two of the very nicest & they look really healthy too. That's how it starts ;>)

OMG Denise how wonderful! Fabulous Plants & wonderful Pix. You've got some stuff I've never seen before, really jaw dropping like this Villosa, are those leaves 6-8" long?

I had some of that PS you shared, mine's on its last legs but I LOVED those leaves & their wonderful patterns (it got a bit overheated on a windowsill w/ radiator underneath, : )

Don't recall seeing the all green Macrophylla before, I usually drool over the variegate, gosh Mitrata, the handsome Deykea, I want them ALL, it's just that simple! Pretty amazing. TFS!!!

(I did answer yr. EM, unclear if you got it.)

Hey Karen! Yes, I did get your em - it's been crazy-busy, but it was good to hear from you.

Yes, the villosa has very long leaves... I'd say about 6". I'm down to 1 leaf (**sniff-sniff**), but it's hanging on and otherwise seems fine. I'm watching it every day to look for signs of new growth as it could easily make its way into my top 10 favs if only it would grow!

I'll have to send you some more 'PS' - it's just too pretty not to have in your collection. Took a photo of a flower umbel this morning - they look almost petable with all that fur!

Thanks for starting this thread, Alavone. It is nice to see people's whole plants as well as the spectacular blooms.

Planto, two prettier pictures of those two cultivars couldn't be found. You captured them at just the right stage.

Denise, I don't think I've seen that picture of your australis before. That is magnificent. I would feel like I was in a cathedral if I had that hanging overhead.

Hi GG. That ssp. tenuipes is actually growing up a trellis. I tried and tried to train it to grow as a hanging plant and it adamantly refused. So I put it beneath a trellis in the GH so now it's over 7' tall and growing off in all directions. Check it out when it's in full bloom in the fall...

The fragrance rocks my world! Mmmm!

Ah, what a breath of fresh air it is to see all of these gorgeous plants! I used to have a hanging basket of KP and KQ together that looked exactly like yours, Amber. It was attacked by the mealybugs and I had to discard it.

Denise, the pictures of your fungii and australis spp. tenuipes never fail to impress me. I also love your pubicalyx pictures, just stunning! Vanuatuensis has some of the prettiest flowers of any Hoya I have ever seen, which is why it's on my wish list :-).

Great pictures, everyone!

Everyone's plants are so nice & healthy & the pix are all really good too.

My kitchen window

that's my green Hydro H kerrii on the windowsill in its water inside a clay pot

Here it is more recently after I looped the top growth into a knot (loosely).

Suspected Australis someone gave me

Diversifolia from a friend

Some water growing H chouke from a swap last summer, lovely plant, very easy care (I've got some in mix too).

Another room, my Hydro varieg. H. kerii

H. pallida, interesting leaves & trailing habit

They can all be so different, something I really like about Hoyas.

My common hoya carnosa.

This monster is where mine came from. It is my aunt's plant. I'm not sure how old it is. It flowers every year though. Very happy plant. It's probably about 4 feet tall, but I am sure the vines are much longer than that

Great plants, everyone! Jessie, I really enjoyed the way you shared a picture of the mother plant as well as your own.

Amber, when I was at home last night, I could see your pictures again. But when I am at work, I cannot see them. I don't think it's the browser, as I am looking through google chrome and safari now and it isn't working on either. (It does take you right to the picture if you click on the little broken link icon, though.)

Well, that new feature IS kind of nice! Of course, you can only post one at a time, but I like it.

Alavone, I haven't had a chance to answer your question about the fragrance of autralis ssp. tenuipes - it's a very spicy-sweet fragrance, and when it's full of blooms like that, it smells marvelous in the house! I have a small greenhouse off my kitchen with a sliding door access. It sticks out about 7' from the house and it's 16' long, glass on 3 sides and roof glass. I keep a little over half my Hoyas in there, then the rest grow in windows in the house. I love the "jungle feel", so no matter how big a greenhouse I might have, I'd still want to be surrounded by plants in the house!

So this photo is of my H. aldrichii which is budding up. It budded up earlier in the spring, but I was fighting aphids and they literally chewed the bud to pieces. I find the only thing other than BATS that really gets rid of them is the alcohol spray, and if you do that to a bud, it just dries up and dies. Anyway, I treated aldrichii (and everything else the buggers seemed to like) with BATS and thank god the hideous things are gone and this will actually open at some point...

Hi Kittee,

Nice buds, but they need to be open for an ID, also shots showing the leaves would help.

FYI: the word is Carnosa, whether that's this ID or not, which I can't tell.

Hey Denise,

Interesting, unusual looking buds on your Aldrichi, should be interesting when it opens, must be exciting.

Here are a couple pics of one of my favorites right now. It is doing pretty well.

I bought it as cumingiana, but when I posted it's first blooms, there was some doubt about the id. I emailed the lady in Georgia for her opinion, but she gave me two different answers. So for now, I call it cumingiana.

And two close-ups.

Thanks everyone.

Aggie, I too got this plant from Joni, I think it was three summers ago. It grows fast! Even more than it looks, cause I cut the winter growth off each spring. In winter, I can't give it the light level it wants, so the growth is not as nice. So I cut it off when the plant goes back outside in spring.

Klea - yeah the fragrance. I hate it. During the day it just smells yucky. At night, the scent changes, and it smells like rotten oranges or old shoes or something musty and rotten. I had it on my back patio yesterday after taking pics, then it sat there overnight. I stepped out there last night - and ohhh not nice.

Went back out to the back yard at first light this morning.

Hello Hoyaphiles:

First, beautiful plants - kudos!!

I bought my first hoya today - KP I think. I was planning to transplant it into a container prettier than the boring green one it came in, but I notice in many (if not all) of these pictures, they've been left in their pots. I understand Hoyas like being kind of root bound - would you recommend I leave it in the plastic pot? Is there an advantage?

Thanks for the advice!

Hey Laura:)

Feel free to repot your new Hoya. It does not need to be root bound. The main issue is that it is important not to overpot Hoyas because then they tend to sit in damp for too long. They need well-draining medium and an appropriately sized pot. If you take it out and it looks pretty pot bound then you can move it up one pot size (no more).

This is going to sound like it is in direct opposition to the statement above, but people prefer plastic pots because the plants don't dry out as fast and there's less chance of them getting too dry before you check on them again. This is more of a concern if you have a lot of plants and can't be watering them every couple days in the summer. :P

Congratulations on your new carnosa!

I am a brand new hoya lover. I've grown almost everything else but somehow missed out having hoyas until recently (now I have six!). I loved everyone's pictures. Denise, yours are amazing, especially to a newcomer to hoyas! I hope I don't go overboard, but something tells me I'm going to. . . .

Here's a picture of my brevialta, which has both elongated AND round leaves. I will wait for the bloom to confirm it's really what the label indicates.

My mom had this Hoya since I was a little girl, now a grandma...LOL! It has been in the same pot all these years, it was moved from their house to mine and in the process it lost some leaves and had to be cut back. It now has been in my house for 5yrs but only one bloom, boohooo! Faces west window and east sun soooo. If any ideas for bloom please help. Love all the pic of blooms here!

What a healthy and exquisite heirloom carnosa - lucky you! :) :) :)

:( :( :( I know this is the least. fun. answer. ever. and I sound like a broken record, but if its been 5 years and it hasn't bloomed, it probably wants more light. To me, the leaves look quite dark (maybe it's just the picture). They should be the color of young grass or a lime, for really good blooming. In my experience, if it's getting the light it needs, you shouldn't have to wait longer than a year for FULL non-stingy performance.

So, why isn't it getting enough light when you have it nestled nicely between light sources? I don't know! My mother grows her (currently non-blooming) carnosas right up against west and east windows and the leaves are flat as glass and dark as night. Not all east windows are equal. Some windows just don't get good light, what with trees and buildings and window dressings. I can't figure out what makes her windows so dim compared to mine, but the truth is revealed in the color, shape, and growth pattern of the plant.

I think a lot of time people go looking for a more complicated solution, like repotting or fertilizer, but carnosa is just not a very fussy Hoya, so I don't think that's the issue, unfortunately. If you're serious about blooms, you're going to fuss around with light exposure.

But maybe I'm wrong. I'm not the Good Will Hunting of the plant world anything. Good luck, either way! :)

My mom has a big carnosa like yours and she was saying it was not blooming for her,so one time when I was visiting her I decided to re pot with new soil and a much smaller pot.Two months after doing this it bloomed.Her hoya only gets a bit of east sun as she lives in a condo on the second floor.Oh by the way she waters all her hoyas that I have given to her on a scheduler and her plants have never been given fertilizer.Every time I go to her home I am amazed that all of her hoyas are blooming.I now try to give her a cutting of my temperamental hoyas because her green thumb is very green.

A few of my hoyas are growing a little bit, but tannaensis has grown at least six inches in the last few winter months. Seems like the kudzu of the hoya world, but I love the idea of growing a plant from such an exotic place. Does the stem get thicker over time?

Hello everyone!
I normally post on the fragrant and plumeria forums but have been lurking here lately. :)
Here is my Hoya obscura 'Major' that I purchased from Kartuz Greenhouses back in October 2011. It's growing in a gritty mix with Dynamite slow release fertilizer. I occasionally give it some Dyna-Gro Grow. Recently after reading on this forum about Eleanor's VF-11 I ordered some and sprayed the plant with it yesterday.
Being a fragrance nut I'm hoping to get it to bloom. It's in a south facing window but will go outside in filtered sun when it's warm enough.
Would love to get any tips on how to get it to bloom...though I fear I just have to wait until the plant gets large enough. The good news is that it's been putting out lots of new growth lately so fingers crossed! :)
Anyone ever sniff this variety? How does it compare to the regular H. obscura?

-Robert

Welcome to the Hoya Forum! That looks like a very healthy and robust plant! I do not grow this variety but as far as Hoyas in general, you seem to be doing everything right to get blooms pretty quickly. Im sure others will give you lots of helpful advice, but I wanted to welcome you to joining our discussions!

Thanks, Teisa!
This forum has a wealth of information. I love it when people are willing to share their knowledge. I also love this thread! It's so cool to see all the variances in hoya leaves and flowers and to see mature specimens.
Of course I'm taking notes on the fragrant ones. ;)

I have two Hoyas, a H. carnosa 'Krimson Queen' and an H. carnosa 'Chelsea' I've posted a couple photos before of my 'Krimson Queen' on other posts (not trying to beat a dead horse), so here's a photo of 'Chelsea.' I bit my tongue and purchased it for $15 at Lowes, but it was in such great condition and I'd only seen one other one in town that someone ended up purchasing. I would of been sad if this one was purchased too so I picked it up. I ended up dividing it into two 6'' pots and gave half of it to my Mother. I've trimmed it back some and am already seeing new growth. Here's my half:

Great to see you

@ Planto

Chelsea is kawaii! I think it blows Pothos out of the water, for brown-thumb friends who want some decorative looking greenery.
