Hoya lambii third time a charm
My Hoya lambii has bloomed three times this summer but this has been the best of all. All of the flowers have opened together this time around and there are many more of them than the previous two bloomings.
Here is a photo of the plant. The two dark spots on the leaves are spots that developed when I put the plant in bright southern sun, too bright for this one. I ended up having to use cinnamon to stop the progression of the spots on the leaf. I am hoping that the leaves fill in on the upper part of the plant soon but this one is said to naturally have leafless sections of vine. This plant really is quite an oddity, definitely my favorite so far from what has bloomed for me. The plant alone is interesting/attractive but the blooms are really something to.
Here is a look at the flowers which have the most fantastic scent. The back of the blooms are mottled with brick red spots.
A closer look.
