Hoya inflata

Just thought I would post a picture from this summer of H. Inflata. It took awhile to root but sure took off once it got really warm outside.

Ooo-la-la! That's a beauty, Dee! Are the leaves thin or succulent? Hard to tell from the photo...

Thanks all, there was no scent to detect. The leaves are not succulent, however they are on the thick side and rather hard. When they are new leaves they are velvety soft. I thought the blooms to be rather large but didn't measure them. Here is another look.

Dee that is fantastic! I love the second photo.
Do the blooms have a slight greenish colour or are my eyes failing me? The leaves are quite beautiful in their own right.

Congratulations and good growing!

Mike they are indeed having a greenish tint. When they are buds, they look like little marshmallows and they kinda feel like it as we'll, I know I squeezed them a little bit :)

Very very neat! I love the marshmallow description. And thanks for explaining the leaves so well - I never would have guessed! I always imagined them more like the campanulata/etc. bunch.

I look forward to the day when this plant has spread to everyone's collections. It's really something. :)
