Hi Sue. It's truly adorable, in EVERY stage! Can't wait for mine to bloom, now.

i have a cutting of this rooting right now, soooo excited now for it to grow up and bloom for me... love it! that top picture makes me think of yogurt covered raisins! all of them are so adorable.
How long the cut takes to flower? Just an average of course. I've been collecting hoyas for 3 years and only one bloom to me.
Thanks for sharing such nice pictures.
Congratulations Sue! I just love Hoya flower photos where the nectar forms those little reflective beads.
Thanks Denise, Amber,
This cutting is about 3 years old, very easy to grow. Now have a lot of buds, less leaves than anyone.
I only use nutricote or osmocote slow-release, 1 spoon on top, in the summer and blooming buster Peter 1/week.
I grow all my hoyas with orchids outside in the summer, under shade, and water abundance.
This one always looks like an alien plant to me. xD I agree with Denise that all the stages are equally beautiful. I actually have a whose adorable pink berries remind me of those buds.
Welcome back & thanks for the superb pix (as usual). This is a pretty cool looking set of blooms.
Am I the only one bothered by this plant's name?
If the plant has square leaves, why is it named rotundifolia (which off the Latin means round leafed)? Talk about confusing & contradictory.
I believe that was a typo above. The plant is called rotundiflora. I think that will make you happier. :P
Although apparently rotundifolia was a published name, syn. for H. motoskei.
Thanks GG, that DOES make lots more sense, & yes, I do feel better ;>). Thx!
Thanks you for the link GG.
Since I saw picture of this flower, I was so exiting to be able to touch and see it in really world.
Thanks you for looking everyone...
Your pictures reenforce the reason why it's on my wish list! Those flowers are just so darned cute! LOL

Can I find this species in Australia? Do you have any idea?
Perhaps, you'll have to look.
Just a thought, but have you tried searching for "Nurseries in Australia which sell ..."?
Check with Iris Marie Liddle. If it's not listed in the catalog I would suggest emailing and asking for it.
Here is a link that might be useful: Liddle Hoyas 2012
It's not listed in the catalog but I asked... Finger crossed :)
I am new in Australian hoya market... I don't know any nursery other than Liddle... And I guess it is impossible to get from overseas into the Australia, although the hoya heavens are so close...
Hope Liddle nursery has this...
