Very nice Amber!

RE: update on my plant children!

Amber all I can say is wow. You have a great collection already, may Hoyas that took me years to track down. Everything looks very happy and I bet you see a good amount of growth happen over the summer. You were lucky to get your cuttings rooted early on so that they could benefit from a long growing season before winter sets in.


RE: update on my plant children!

Looks really awesome, Amber!!! Very cool to start of such a diverse group of cuttings. I hope they all thrive for you for years to come....just one word of advise, from experience on the H. Australis "Brookfield"... once you get it really established...keep it really on dry side and in a super chunky medium...i know....i rotted mine! working on re- rooting some tiny cuttings from mama plant.

Good luck and CONGRATS !

RE: update on my plant children!

Oh also there is no such plant as Hoya australis subsp Brookfield. If you want we can figure out what Hoya australis you have is you start another thread on just that plant. I have the most recent article on Hoya australis (Liddle and Foster) so I can use that to help make the ID. I am assuming that Brookfield is the location this plant was collected but this type of info is not automatically used as either a subspecies name or as a cultivar name such as 'Ruby Sue' etc.


RE: update on my plant children!

ok thanks mike ill do that... thats how i recieved it labeled, i thought it was strange when i couldnt find like anything about it online. ill start a new thread here in a little bit.

RE: update on my plant children!

i can not wait until i have momma plants to take cuttings from, i cant wait to pay everything forward to others who need ones that i have. its very exciting that i will have the chance to be able to share (as long as i can keep everything happy)

RE: update on my plant children!

Wow, that's a lot of new plants to be taking care of. I'm very jealous of your pentaphlebia and it looks like it has a couple new vines to boot. I've also been growing some cuttings I received a while back and it's fun to finally see them push out new vines and leaves. I have merrillii and subcalva in common with you and they're starting to grow nicely now, though it took a while to see the initial growth. I should post an update like this as well.


RE: update on my plant children!

yes chris you should! its so exciting to see the care we give our plants paying off with some new growth! every single one of the cuttings have some sort of new growth, i think the one with the smallest amount of new growth would have to be a tie between macrophylia and acuta, both have just tiny little growth tips just forming, but its enough to let me know that they should make it.

RE: update on my plant children!

Okay Amber, it's official!! I think we can say without a doubt that you are now a "HOYA JUNKIE"!!!!!

Great collection!!!


RE: update on my plant children!

Congratulations Amber!

You have a great collection!& all the new growth must make you a happy person:-) (I know that I am happy with every new leave and branch- making my DH almost nuts with everything I want to share with him-lol!
