Hi Sue. It's truly adorable, in EVERY stage! Can't wait for mine to bloom, now.

Sue,

How long the cut takes to flower? Just an average of course. I've been collecting hoyas for 3 years and only one bloom to me.

Thanks for sharing such nice pictures.

Congratulations Sue! I just love Hoya flower photos where the nectar forms those little reflective beads.

Thanks Denise, Amber,

This cutting is about 3 years old, very easy to grow. Now have a lot of buds, less leaves than anyone.
I only use nutricote or osmocote slow-release, 1 spoon on top, in the summer and blooming buster Peter 1/week.
I grow all my hoyas with orchids outside in the summer, under shade, and water abundance.

This one always looks like an alien plant to me. xD I agree with Denise that all the stages are equally beautiful. I actually have a Columnea orientandina whose adorable pink berries remind me of those buds.

Hiya Sue,

Welcome back & thanks for the superb pix (as usual). This is a pretty cool looking set of blooms.

Am I the only one bothered by this plant's name?

If the plant has square leaves, why is it named rotundifolia (which off the Latin means round leafed)? Talk about confusing & contradictory.

RE: Hoya square leaf - Hoya rotundifolia

I believe that was a typo above. The plant is called rotundiflora. I think that will make you happier. :P

Although apparently rotundifolia was a published name, syn. for H. motoskei.

Can I find this species in Australia? Do you have any idea?


 o
RE: Hoya square leaf - Hoya rotundifolia

Perhaps, you'll have to look.

Just a thought, but have you tried searching for "Nurseries in Australia which sell ..."?

RE: Hoya square leaf - Hoya rotundifolia

Check with Iris Marie Liddle. If it's not listed in the catalog I would suggest emailing and asking for it.

Here is a link that might be useful: Liddle Hoyas 2012

RE: Hoya square leaf - Hoya rotundifolia

It's not listed in the catalog but I asked... Finger crossed :)

I am new in Australian hoya market... I don't know any nursery other than Liddle... And I guess it is impossible to get from overseas into the Australia, although the hoya heavens are so close...

Hope Liddle nursery has this...
