Hoya caudata

My Hoya caudata is blooming again so I though I would post a few photos. I find these flowers to be difficult to photograph because they face straight down.

The flowers on my plant only last a day or two but the leaves more than make up for the beautiful but short lived flowers. Here is an older photo of a new leaf developing.

Beautiful! Do you know any specifics about this caudata? I have two - one from DL last year with HUGE leaves and one from a trade early last year with small leaves.

Mike, I love your Caudata bloom!! Caudata is one of my favorites for the leaves, but the bloom is definitely a bonus. Its a shame it is so short lived. I'm hoping my small one will bloom one day soon...but I think it will be a while. Thanks for the pictures.

Kelly, how cool that you have two different clones of Caudata.

Kelly this plant is from David Liddle as well and is IML 0965. The largest leaf is 4.5" long by 2.5" across.

Puglvr my plant bloomed first about a year after I got it as a cutting but did not really settle in and begin to grow and bloom well for a couple of years.

Beautiful flowers and awesome leaves, Mikey. I like the little "hairs" on the petals, makes them look even more delicate.
