Thanks for looking.

All my tropical plants are outside in Summer. I have seeds very often, usually I take it off before it getting bigger pod.

Someone didn't wrap a vegetable twist tie around the seed pod as suggested in another thread.

Steve,
I still have your address.

I'd read your thread with the twist, but this one I did not want to keep it.
It was so nice to see them fly.

Hi Sue,

How I wish to be the wind in your garden..........LOL!!!!!

I'd love to know how your hoyas produce so many seeds, while other never produce it! Misteries...........

RE: Hoya wayetti seeds ...gone with the wind

Still it would have been interesting to see if it would produce true as a true species oe could this be just another hybrid we've known all along and a hybrid not a species. The answer my friend is blowin' in the wind, the answer my friend is blowin' in the wind.....

Grazie voi, spero anch'io.

RE: Hoya wayetti seeds ...gone with the wind

Oh Sue! More beautiful babies! You take the most exquisite and interesting photos and I feel so blessed that you take the time to share them with us.

Your glowing success with pod production gives me hope that I might someday have a more smooth seed sprouting adventure ahead of me.

Next time I'm just going to take my little flat of seedlings with me, because when you leave your house there is sometimes no telling when you'll be back. Although, I do have to say that when we were at the hospital, there was a KQ sitting in the window and it was such a huge dose of moral support to see a friend sitting nearby. ^_^

I hope that, but it's too difficult, never in italy hoya has a
seeds, in my opinion there isen't insect,bug, or animal right...

RE: Hoya wayetti seeds ...gone with the wind

Thanks you GG.

where I live, North Carolina, there are a lot of trees, a lot of birds and insects, even deer walking in town middle of the night.

Suetran,

The chance to have hoya seeds, inside my apartment is zero.... so I'll never have seed pod!!!!!!

RE: Hoya wayetti seeds ...gone with the wind

Maybe when your Hoyas get too big to live in your apartment and and move out to the farm you will get some seed pods. If monkeys can get in, so can pollinators :P


 o
RE: Hoya wayetti seeds ...gone with the wind

Sue,
deer walking in my town of the night here too..... but a can't believe that a deer pollinate hoya hahahahahahahah :)))))))
And monkeys too hihihiihh
:)))))))
muoio dal ridere :))))


 o
RE: Hoya wayetti seeds ...gone with the wind

LOL Most mammals would probably require access to a microscope and some watchmaker tools...

"muoio dal ridere"... I must remember this phrase!

RE: Hoya wayetti seeds ...gone with the wind

Sue, I would love to grow some Hoya Fungii, if it is not too much trouble to mail some seeds, no rush. I would gladly return postage, etc. My Hoya Pachyclada little guys are growing towards the light and are so pretty; many survived and getting their second leaves.
thank you, Kathy E.

RE: Hoya wayetti seeds ...gone with the wind

Do you say, "fung-eye" or "funghie"? I am a beginner and need a course in nomenclature and pronunciation of these names. My husband laughs at me...when he hears me read the names. Maybe it doesn't matter, when you live in Colorado??

RE: Hoya wayetti seeds ...gone with the wind

GG,

Only monkeys pollinate hoyas???

RE: Hoya wayetti seeds ...gone with the wind

Hi Sue,

At the farm we have monkeys, birds, butterfly, bees but not deers LOL........., here in Brazil no one has ever seen a seed pod in their hoyas.

hihihihhi ragazzi stiamo degenerando .... hahahahah

RE: Hoya wayetti seeds ...gone with the wind

Kathybennie getting the pronunciations right can be a bit difficult at first but soon you will learn the tricks. It's best to break the words down into their parts. Often times a plant will be named after a person so you pronounce the name accordingly and then the ending. Often times letters are silent as in Hoya diptera which is pronounced die-terra and not dip-terra.
When you see a name like Hoya fungii with the double ii at the end the pronunciation is fung-ee-eye. The ii always sounds like ee-eye.
It takes a bit of practice but it's easiest if you try saying them out loud. And remember to break them into their syllables.

Thanks, Mike. I'll practice some names on my husband and
impress him...he wouldn't know...is it a po-tay-toe or is it a po-tah-toe?? Either way, I love my hoyas!!!

Hi Sue:

I do not speack English very well.

Beautiful pictures and beautiful babies, good luck. Congratulations.

I have several wax plants (hoya carnosa) and other between 23 and 7 years but I have never seen this.

I have seen for three years a "hummingbird sphinx moth" but have not had the good fortune to see any flowers pollinate.

You can see some photos here "visitante polinizador"

Another one:

You can appreciate the great espiritrompa.

Best Regards.

RE: Hoya wayetti seeds ...gone with the wind

Thanks you pepeuve.
Your plant is so big, it should be outdoor all the time, right? I saw the moth too!, with that much flowers, how come you did not have any seed pod? I think maybe the moth and flower are the same s...? lol.
I had a carnosa like that for more than 10 years, but I was so tired to bring in and out, so I divided and gave to friends.

RE: Hoya wayetti seeds ...gone with the wind

Hi Sue:

The plant is outdoors. She receives direct sunlight for two or three hours, in Spring or Summer day. She has over 50 flowers on each flowering. I prune it very often. And I gave cuttings over a meter long. Also, I have many others in the same balcony.

Can you see this video?: It is about my last pruning.
In my blog there are some more examples.

Kind regards.
