I got mine as a cutting in 2009. It has FINALLY bloomed for me! I've always loved the leaves on this one - super fuzzy and silver flecked (this photo doesn't do it justice)...

I found it budding up around the first of October...

Mine don't have the hint of blush that Cpawl's did, but still pretty. And I love the fragrance - like lilacs!

Congrats Denise!! Yours is doing much better than mine, I too love the fuzzy leaves but I'm still waiting for blooms. I got mine in 2010 and hoping next Spring is the magic year?

Beautiful blooms!

Congrats Denise!!
I also just had flower this year, got the cutting 3,4 years ago.
This is the most strongest fragrance, I'd never smell like it.
Thompsonii is a almost perfect plant for me: small, strong ,compact, slow growing, love sun, fragrance, big flower size about 1/2".
Absolutely it is my favorite plant, (thanks you GG.)

Congratulations, Denise! Your blooms look awesome! I wish mine would bloom. Typically this one blooms with pinkish blooms...do you keep yours in a warm place? I keep mine in a cool room...it does fine, but hasn't bloomed yet. Fondly, Patrick

Hi Patrick,

I have to admit I'm a little less than enthused by white flowers. I had no idea they were supposed to be pink. I grow mine in my sunroom which does stay relatively warm. Does that make a difference in flower color, or were you asking more in reference about getting it to flower? Just curious...

Hi Denise...no questions about blooming, mine will bloom when it's larger. I think your H. thomsonii is kept too warm...but, I love white blooms! They'd be more pink given cooler temperatures..and the pink varies a lot..from deep pink to a pink blush. I do keep mine at 58 degrees...still hoping for blooms. Let us know how long yours remains in bloom. Enjoy! Fondly, Patrick

Denise nice growing,I like white flowers.Maybe its the time of year that they bloom or the clone.I have a couple different clones but only the has flowered for me.
My hoya bloomed in the spring after I had moved it out to the greenhouse which got very warm in the day but did cool down in the night.Last winter it grew a ton of peduncles but only bloomed after the move.The same happened with Serpens All winter it grew peduncles but only bloomed after been put out in the greenhouse,but I did notice that when it became very hot during the day it did cause some buds to abort.

Cpawl - what's the difference between your thompsonii clones? I really like it because it is a steady grower and doesn't have high demands. I grow it in my sunroom where it gets bright indirect light. It puts on regular growth (as opposed to some that are spurt-growers, or those that stop the minute it isn't hot and humid...) But I've only seen the one clone. Where did you get the two you own?

Denise The clone I have seems to look like yours.And I got it from apodagis.It grows well for me also.I grow it S/H.My second clone has smaller leaves and no sliver specks at all.It is not a fast grower and I can not remember where I got it from.But I think I got it from aleya.
