Recommendation Extravaganza

greedygh0stOctober 15, 2010

Everyone's always looking for Hoya recommendations, so I thought maybe we could put our heads together and compile a BIG list of the best of the best.

For any awards ceremony there needs to be categories and I'd love everyone's recommendations for any of the following categories:

Best Small Growing Hoya

Best Large Leaf Hoya

Best Warmth Loving Hoya

Best Cool Growing Hoya

Best Flower Hoya

Best Leaf Hoya

Best Fragrance Hoya

Best Fast-Blooming Hoya

Best Growth Habit Hoya

Best Unusual Hoya

I'm going to ponder my own answers and get back to you...

I should emphasize, I think, that the primary purpose of this thread is to generate as many recommendations per category as possible. That way it will be useful to anyone looking for a particular characteristic in future acquisitions.

So, if your passion is small growing Hoyas and you have 10 favorites, don't feel like you should only list your favorite, maybe just STAR your favorite. ^_^
