That is so neat and gorgeous! What a fantastic photo progression. You couldn't do a more perfect job.

I love the way these buds look when they are half open. It's very interesting. So sleek, as though the result of sharp-knifed surgery. And such a pretty pod for this Hoya! I had no idea!

Just... wow!

Sue that is the best series of photos I have seen in a long time, those are magazine or book material.
It's most likley that the bee transferred pollen after it's leg or foot got caught in the channel between the corona lobes. Do you think you might have some baby Hoya photos for us to enjoy later in the summer?

Thanks so much for posting this. :)

They're beautiful Sue! I'm still waiting for mine to bloom this year. They bloomed for me last year so not sure why mine hasn't bloomed yet.

Thanks for sharing your great pictures!

Great pictures, Sue. You take awesome pictures. Love the little bee sitting and doing his work. You should watermark or put you name on your pics so no one can use them as theirs on ebay or on other sites that sell hoya plants. I was hoping my pachyclada would bloom this year, but nothing yet. It bloomed last year from the only one peduncle and I was hoping for new growth but there doesn't seed to be any. I was hoping it would put out a new branch and some peduncles. No luck yet.

I saw a lot people did it that way, but I think it is not much benefit from borrow my pic.

I'm really happy to see all of you enjoy it. Thanks

SUCH great photos! In my dream house, I might have the one with the bee blown up giant-sized and framed in my breakfast nook... :)
