Hello everyone. It has been a while since I have been here and I hope everyone is well. I just had to show you my favorite Hoya.

It has been flowering and re-flowering since March and it continues to do so.
It smells like chocolate every time I walk into the greenhouse. Yummy!

Thanks:-)

Hi Mike!! Congratulations on blooming your Hoya australis!! At least that's what it looks like to me,lol... It is just beautiful!! Look at all those buds! Great job growing it Mike!! Thanks for sharing!

Hi Mike,

Yes, I agree - australis, probably ssp. tenuipes. I couldn't make mine grow hanging and had to grow it on a trellis because it just wants to climb and climb. Mine blooms in the fall, and I know fragrance is subjective, but I describe mine as spicy-sweet. I'll have to take a big whiff next time and see if I can compare it to chocolate!

So I have to ask what the white device is in the pot? I'm dying of curiosity!

Quite a a wonderful display, congratulations indeed. One can see why it's your favorite pic. The leaves sure look like Australis.

Hi Mike,

Congrats on your nice plant.

I'm as curious as Denise, so what is the white device in the pot? I'm dying of curiosity! (2)

Hi Mike!

Glad to see you're back! Congrats on the australis buds and blooms! Love your greenhouse too! Is that an Epiphyllum I see in the back? :-)

Very beautiful! I've always felt like australis was one Hoya that should be hung overhead like a chandelier. This is a perfect example. And nice to hear from you again. :)

Thanks a million Karen, Brad, Greedyghost, Mitzi, Pepe, Denise:-), and Nancy:-)))

I really appreciate the kind words, for you stopping by, and yes, most of all, all the great advice that has been given here.

I must admit and oops! I do have another favorite as equal as this one, but I am dying for it to still bloom!@

Mike,

You forgot to say what is the white device in the pot... LOL...........


 o
RE: My favorite Hoya! pic.

Oh that.......... That is a plant zapper! It forces a plant to shoot out flowers that once never would. You know, like an electric shock...

Ok,,lololo The truth is, it is an indoor outdoor thermometer. I leave it there to tell me how hot is up at the pitch there.

Is that better? Got ya.lol It would be nice if there were such a thing as some sort of electrical impulse thing, right?

LOL Mike. You had me going there for a couple beats. I was like: Is he crazy? He's shocking his plants?!

Let us know if you ever publish a paper on floral frequency as induced by electronic pulse therapy (patent pending).

RE: My favorite Hoya! pic.

Very nice setup you have there. Was wondering tho-- how hot DOES it get in there? Very pretty plants. Chocolate huh? would never get me out of there! lol
