Hoya Carnosa

I have a Hoya Carnosa (or polynera.. i cant tell) I ordered on line about a year and a half ago. It was a cutting when i got it and has now grown to a beautiful plant with vines about 2 1/2 feet in length. Today i noticed a single peduncle on a vine! YAY! IM DOING SOMETHING RIGHT! lol.

(Ive been using Miracle Grow Bloom Booster for those who would like to know.)

Anywho, the peduncle is about a 1/4 inch long and I was wondering how long it takes for it to get flowers? Like from bud to full bloom?

RE: Hoya Carnosa

H. Carnosa and Polynera are very different plants. Polynura has leaves that look like fish tails.

I have hoyas that grow peduncles regularly but have yet to bud let alone flower. I think it can take a long time to see flowers and then other times you might get them right away. Depends on a lot of things.

RE: Hoya Carnosa

Woops. Forgive me guys, I meant its a either a H. or Carnosa H. Pubicalyx.

RE: Hoya Carnosa

Carnosa and pubicalyx are both very nice plants and easy to grow. Pubicalyx leaves usually have more sliver speckles or splashes than carnosa leaves. There are websites:

Both sites are full of useful info and great pictures! Hope these help you as they do me!
