H. Cv. "Mathilde" from "thehoyan" on Ebay.

RE: New hoya order arrived--a note about Kartuz

One thing about Kartuz...make sure to call them and check if a plant is out of stock...they don't keep their website updated constantly.

I.E., I wanted H. Obscura "Major" ( I know some might say this is not a real name/ cultivar...but it is the one I wanted due to the leaves strong tendency towards red...soooo...What Michael Kartuz told me to do is to order another hoya...then put a note TO HIM in that says in the ordering notes "Substitute H. Lacunosa etc. etc. for H. Obscura Major" I was nervous the whole time, waiting, since they never confirmed they got that notation...but it did arrive accurately!) I also ordered H. Nicholsoniae from them. Both plants were perfectly packed and healthy.

eBays "theHoyan" ...CB.... (Yes I know the history...) packed very professionally also. Very satisfied with the quality of all these orders!

RE: New hoya order arrived

Nice Hoyas! I have that H. obscura and it's a lovely plant. Tolerates a lot.

Yeah, I heard that if you can avoid asking her any Qs, you're good to go. Otherwise...LOL.

RE: New hoya order arrived

I've ordered nicholsoniae before from other vendors but neither have arrived that beautiful and colorful

Great hoyas.

The red is striking. Just lovely. ~ Mary

RE: New hoya order arrived

How long did it take to receive your order from Kartuz? After I saw yours, I had to order something. LOL!!


RE: New hoya order arrived

Nice cuttings. I have to literally fry my Hoya obscura to get any colour change!


RE: New hoya order arrived

Very nice. I too give my obscura very strong sun, as those leaves are just lovely. The other benefit is the constant blooms when they are getting that level of light.
