Two of these are from Kartuz...H. Obscura "Major" and H. Nicholsoniae
Another is off ebay...from "TheHoyan" ...CB... that is H. cv. "Mathilde"
The first pic is H. Obscura "Major"
Sorry the pic quality is so horrid
H. Cv. "Mathilde" from "thehoyan" on Ebay.
One thing about Kartuz...make sure to call them and check if a plant is out of stock...they don't keep their website updated constantly.
I.E., I wanted H. Obscura "Major" ( I know some might say this is not a real name/ cultivar...but it is the one I wanted due to the leaves strong tendency towards red...soooo...What Michael Kartuz told me to do is to order another hoya...then put a note TO HIM in that says in the ordering notes "Substitute H. Lacunosa etc. etc. for H. Obscura Major" I was nervous the whole time, waiting, since they never confirmed they got that notation...but it did arrive accurately!) I also ordered H. Nicholsoniae from them. Both plants were perfectly packed and healthy.
eBays "theHoyan" ...CB.... (Yes I know the history...) packed very professionally also. Very satisfied with the quality of all these orders!
Nice Hoyas! I have that H. obscura and it's a lovely plant. Tolerates a lot.
Yeah, I heard that if you can avoid asking her any Qs, you're good to go. Otherwise...LOL.
I've ordered nicholsoniae before from other vendors but neither have arrived that beautiful and colorful
The red is striking. Just lovely. ~ Mary
How long did it take to receive your order from Kartuz? After I saw yours, I had to order something. LOL!!
Nice cuttings. I have to literally fry my Hoya obscura to get any colour change!
Very nice. I too give my obscura very strong sun, as those leaves are just lovely. The other benefit is the constant blooms when they are getting that level of light.
