Please Help Identify this Noid

This is the Noid that I got from SRQ Hoyas. She informed me it was a noid. It budded up before and blast. I was on vacation this week and it BLOOMED.

Can anyone identify it from these photos? The blooms look a little dried out so maybe thats why they didn't fully open....

This is the half dead bloom, Im hoping someone can help me identify it. Im thinking it is H. Callistrophyllla.

Could be callistrophylla or maybe sp. Nong Nooch (see the next post)...

And here's Nong Nooch. The flowers look very close to the same, but Nong Nooch's are a little smaller.

Oh thank you! I've never heard of Nong Nooch! I do believe that is what I have!! It's turning out to be a pretty good bloomer for me. It has 5 different peduncles growing at the moment! Thank you Denise!

It looks more like Doug's clemensiorum although it might not be nearly that long (can't tell from the picture - how long is it Teisa?) It just doesn't reallllly look like Nong Nooch to me and definitely not callistophylla, which has much more washed out veining.

If it's a medium-large leaf, my vote is that it's one of the many collections of finlaysonii. But I don't think you can really identify it for sure from those photos. :(

Here is a better picture of the Noid in Bloom again. Im thinking it is Nong Nooch. Next photo is of Leaves.

This is the Leaves. The are about 6-8" long. Does this seem like Nong Nooch?

Well now I've got another question for those of you that grow this Hoya. It closed up after 24 hrs! What on earth is going on? I've never had a Hoya bloom for only 1 day. Anyone else seen this?

RE: Please Help Identify this Noid

There are some Hoyas whose blooms do not last like others. I've had a hard time getting photos of certain Hoya's flowers because I didn't look at them on the day they bloomed. Just recently, my juanngoiana bloomed for the first time - two blooms - and though I did get a photo of it budding up, neither time did I get a chance to photograph the open flower. And I thought I was keeping a pretty close eye on it. Nong Nooch is another that I've never gotten a photo of the flowers for the same reason. That and the fact that it seems to want to flower down close to the base of the plant!

Thanks Denise! I was just surprised when it bloomed and immediately closed the next day and fell off! On SRQ Hoya website it was Nong Nooch has a long bloom time!! Something's not right.

Teisa, many (most? all?) finlaysonii flowers are short-lived, they last a day or two, supposedly. So are finlaysonii hybrids like 'Jennifer'. My notes say Nong Nooch flowers are also short-lived. I must have taken that info from a source other than Joni.
