Canosa with peduncles

ladylotus(Z3/4 ND)October 20, 2013

I have had this Hoya for years. I started it with a really tiny plant. It has grown fairly large and the plant reaches across the rafter of my greenhouse. I believe it is a Carnosa but don't know which variety. Does anyone know?

Well, it has tons of peduncles on it and has had them on for weeks since I noticed. Since they are in my greenhouse and the temps will go down to 45 deg F. Will the peduncles survive and bloom in these temps?

Here is my plant.

Most Hoyas will be ok at 45, but they won't be happy enough to bloom. I try to keep my GH at or slightly below 60 once it gets cold. At those temps, it may still bloom for you this fall. Or it may wait until spring. Either way, you can expect blooms soon. Congrats!

Holy catz, my husband would have a coronary if I heated my greenhouse beyond 45 deg. It would just cost too much money to do that. Would be so nice though.

Thank you for the information.
