Unexpected faves and the opposite
Going through and checking the hoyas to see who needs watering, I am struck again by how much I like polyneura. Don't get me wrong, I never expected to DISlike it, but it was one of those hoyas that never quite grabbed me, partially because I'd heard it was finicky. Mine is anything but. It has been super patient with me during the funk of 2011, and now that I've gotten over that, for the most part, it is rewarding me with growth. I really like this little guy.
On the opposite side, will cinnamomifolia ever do anything? It is like a fake plant. Leaves look great, but no new vines or leaves or even an attempt that failed. It had prime real estate at the front of my south window but has now been ousted by benguetensis, who is rewarding me with lovely red coloration on its leaves.
What about you? Do you have hoyas that snuck up and vined their way into your heart? Or one you were excited about but has been a little disappointing thus far?
