RE: October bloom

Such an identifiable Hoya, nothing quite like it's amazing colour combo. Jan how large are those blooms?

RE: October bloom

Dear jan
I love this hoya, it is on my wish list. Is this a large vine? What kind of growing conditions doe it like?


 o
RE: October bloom

Thanks everyone.

Mike, individual flowers are about 5/8 inch.

Andrew, this plant is huge. long nodes between the leaves.
The plant is in a clay pot outside under screened lanai in eastern sun, I water when the top is dried, fertilize during growing season with the bloom booster(high middle number) and give soft flow showers with a hose every now & then. I'll take a photo of the whole plant later.
Only thing this plant does not flower all at once but that's okay, this way I get to enjoy flowers for months.

RE: October bloom

I have a tiny nummularioides umbel for October. This is the first one on this plant since I purchased it last year.

From My hoyas

I hope I will have more blooms later since this hoya is well-known for multiple blooms, isn't it?

RE: October bloom

Hi Xuan~
You have some very nice hoyas. . . how come they are all noid? Do you buy them as noid's? Are you waiting for flowers to give them proper id's?

Sorry about being nosey, but just curious. . .

RE: October bloom

Here is H cinnamomifolia plant. My nummularioides budding up everywhere, H obscura, H lacunosa var, pub red buttons are in bloom currently.

Very pretty Jan, that's a monster plant. . . thanks for sharing.

 o
RE: October bloom

Thank you Jan, it is beutifull. I will consider buying that one from CN(if she has it, I lOVE her plants)in the spring.


 o
RE: October bloom

Maid... almost all my hoyas were harvested from the jungle by people who were looking for something else, like orchids, so they were NOIDs.

Usually, I'd have to wait until they bloom, then I compare them with others named varieties online, or asked GW members here, to obtain the IDs. But sometimes, that is still inaccurate because hoyas can be different from a very fine detail :-o(. I do have one or two hoyas that people cannot agree on their names!!!

Xuan


 o
RE: October bloom

Xuan,
Wow, how cool. It would be great if you could start a thread and attach photos of some of your NOID plants. I would bet you are probably the only person on this forum that has plants directly from habitat. All of the rest of us don't ever get to see hoyas like that.

You don't necessarily need to post photos of the flowers. It would be interesting to just see photos of the foliage first and then if they flower, you can add those photos later.
Thanks in advance, (:o)

RE: October bloom

Hi there...
I check this website all the time to get ideas on how to grow hoyas and their needs. I got the sickness too...;) and my colection has been growing lately.. :) I was given a little baby of the H cinnamomifolia plant with the promise that its blooms will smell like cinnamon... Can anyone confirm that? I'm glad to say that it's healthy and doing just great...

Also i got a couple of hoyas with no name i will love to give them their identity back...

Maybe someone can let me know what their names are...? Here are some photos... I hope it helps.

Thanks,
Riz

Here is a link that might be useful: Photos

RE: October bloom

Hi Riz, and welcome~

I will say the first no ID hoya is H. wayetii. I will leaves the rest to the real experts.

PS. You might get more feedback if you start a different thread. The experts here really like iding hoyas, they are more likely to see it if it's in a thread all it's own. :)

Maid~


 o
RE: October bloom

Hi Riz, welcome!
Jan
I am not an expert but looks like
1. H Dischidia p...
2. H DS-70
3. H Nummulariaid
4. ?? flower might help
5. H pachyclada red/white
6. H cummingiana
7. H carnosa motoskei
8. H pubicalyx "Pink Silver"

Jan, my nummulariodes is blooming and it literaly has blooms at every node, with some nodes having multiple peduncles and buds. Will take a picture when I get home. I also have a pretty strong scent but can't place it. It is the only one blooming in my family room and it fills the room with it's scent.

Dee


 o
RE: October bloom

Hi Riz welcome to the forum. Your Hoya cinnamomifolia will not have cinnamon scented blooms. The secret is in the name and if you break down the species name into it's parts you get cinnamom-i-foila, this Hoya was named because it's leaves resemble those of the cinnamon tree's and not for the scent of it's flowers.

Mike


 o
RE: October bloom

Finally when I checked my nummulariodes it's making spurs/peduncles! I best get it inside so they won't abort. They are still small so hopefully the transition won't effect them.,,,,Debbie

Thanks everyone, this thing is in a little 4 inch pot and blooms at every node, hard to capture. It has a faint smell during the day, but at night it tends to get overpowering, can't place the smell but it is a nice one.

This one has been blooming about 2 weeks now. Hmm, maybe if I took it down and took a shot looking down on it. I will have to experiment.

Dee

RE: October bloom

Yay!!! I just noticed huskeliana yellow is budding up. Obscura has been blooming for a long time.

This just opened up yesterday and thought I would share it with you guys.

RE: October bloom

Nancy, your RHP flowers looks like pink silver but I know it's RHP because the leaves. Very pretty!!!!

RE: October bloom

Gorgeous Pug! Thanks for sharing!

RE: October bloom

I think that pubicalyx blooms are some of the best hoya blooms to ever exist. Thanks for sharing, Pug!

H. nummularioides is blooming just as described by jan1__2007. I thought the small plant might be a gesneriad, but it finally put out new growth with peduncles at the nodes .

While it is a small sample, it seems remarkable that it is blooming simultaneously in Vietnam, Florida, Oklahoma and Illinois (indoors). Haxuan's report of a single inflorescence is interesting (unless she has no other nodes). Yale


 o
RE: October bloom

Thanks everyone!!

Jan, thats exactly what I've mentioned on another post, my RHP, PS and Red Buttons blooms all look very similar. Not sure why? I bought the the RHP and PS at Gardino's so I know the ID's are correct...plus like you said the leaves prove it. The REd buttons I received from(trade) a nice member here and I know the ID is correct also. Can't be my weather, you and I have the same temperatures?

Yale, congrats on your H. Numm. blooming!

mfyss - you can add Canada to that list too :0)

RE: October bloom

this is an awesome little hoya. It's a rather compact grower and blooms only in the fall. it's also a very prolific bloomer opening almost all of it's flowers at one time. H. nummularioides
Photobucket

This hoyas leaves remind me a lot of rosemary!!! It's a very fast grower for me and is one of my favorites for foliage. It's hoya linearis and it's a first time bloomer for me.
Photobucket

This is H. sp. Kumning Kina and it's another favorite for it's long strappy leaves. This is it's first time blooming for me!! The flowers on this hoya somewhat resemble those of hoya erythrina as far as size and shape goes.

 o
RE: October bloom

David, great photos!! my nummularioides are blooming too. I love everything about nummularioides.
I love lienaris, mine was huge but end up dieing for some reason.
I got a Kumning Kina cutting in trade while ago. I think Kumning Kina plant looks really nice. Can't wait.
David, one of these days I am going to have to drive up there with a clipper & a huge bag.

RE: October bloom1

Actually I forgot my kuming kina died. :-(

RE: October bloom

Very nice Jan, I'm waiting for my rooted cuttings(Numm) to get some peduncles...so far nothing yet **sigh**


 o
RE: October bloom

Jan, nice photos. After seeing all these phots of Nummlariods I just couldn't hold back. . . I ordered it from Gardino's today. Along with H. pachyclada and H. Diversifolia.

Diversifolia wasn't on my list, but it was only $5.00. And hey, when you're dealing with a hoya addict alls it takes is a bargin, next thing ya know it's in your shopping cart.

Hope I have as much success as you all did.

Maid~


 o
RE: October bloom

Thanks Pug & Maid.
Maid, yes any excuse to get more hoyas.
Some how the cheaper hoyas just jumped into the cart, I justify by saying it makes sense to buy more hoyas to save on shipping. ; ) hehe

RE: October bloom

Hoya Carnosa Krimson Queen....first time she bloomed for me :)

RE: October bloom

Boug, great photos! congrats & welcome. I am surprised your plant flowered because the plant doesn't look too old.
Good growing!!!
Jan


 o
RE: October bloom

Maid, I have Diversifolia and mine grew fast! I started with two free cuttings(Nov. 08) and now its in a 6" pot. Hoping it will bloom next spring? Please post pics when you get your hoyas. We might have to file a complaint to Gardino's about hoyas jumping in our shopping carts, w/out any provocation lol... congrats!

Bougainvillea, that is a very nice KQ and great job with your first bloom...its very pretty! BTW, I LOVE your cache pot!
Its absolutely perfect for that plant!

RE: October bloom

Boug, That is a really pretty plant and that pot you have it in definitely compliments the plant! Awesome!


 o
RE: October bloom

this is a hoya that I have been growing for not quite 3 years now. I originally started with 3 two node cuttings of it from 3 different sources,all of which got potted up into the same pot.one died right away. The other 2 just sat for close to a year and a half doing absolutely nothing,I mean not even putting on as much as one new leaf in all that time. Then all of a sudden last February those 2,still single node cuttings began to grow. Well I now have a plant that is probably 200 nodes or more in size and is completely covering a globe shaped topiary that's at least as big and round as a standard sized basketball. It began making peduncles early on but has only recently started to form buds and yesterday the first set of those opened!!! These are the coolest snow white fuzzy flowers that i've seen yet on a hoyaPhotobucket


 o
RE: October bloom

Very pretty David...what kind of hoya is that? Lovely white blooms!!


 o
RE: October bloom

David, that's a beauty!! Is it greenii?


 o
RE: October bloom

leave it to me to write 40 paragraphs about a hoya and never mention the name!!!! Sorry!! I had every intention on naming it and thought that I had but now that I have gone back and read what I wrote the first time, I see that I did manage to leave out the name!!! The hoya in question here is H. thomsonii and the fragrance has become one of my favorites. it reminds me of a spring flowering bulb of some sorts but i cant put my finger on which one!!!


 o
RE: October bloom

What a wonderful thomsonii! It is in my wishlist for quite sometime. Congratulations!
