    [COLOR="rgb(153, 50, 204)"]I have THIS ONE!!!! Hasn't bloomed in a few year because dummy me moved it into too big a pot and it has been busy growing, growing, growing! Ann this is what I sent to you as well. Oops, when I looked up images I found two of it blooming. Only the one peduncle, but a start. Perhaps it will be better this season.

    As those who know Hoya can see this one has had a long history of blooming, look at the length of the peduncle, the thickened area is where it has bloomed in precious years. As long as these are left alone and not damaged they continue to produce new blooms year after year. An Amazing plant to have such "Fake looking" blooms. And the fragrances is intoxicating!

    Abby, yes I love the burgundy on new leaves.
    Great-ful, almost year round. Last winter was brutal.
    Rebecca, looking at your peduncle your plant is very old & beautiful!!

    It has quite a few more old ones like that one, or it did, it's still in the basement under the lights and won't get to move out for a couple more weeks, they do not like frost or even cool temps. I know because I near ly lost this one when it was about 1/4 the size it is now. Lost heat on one of the coldest night way back when the girls were young and we lived in a mobile home. The orchids fared better than any of my Hoya plants that winter.

    Hoya is new to me. I don't think I have seen one in real life. The flowers look very nice. Thanks for sharing!

    Hoya are sold by a variety of names and generally the more common types can be found in specialty plant/flower shops, even WM on occasion. They sometimes come in with the Succulents and Cacti and they are neither! There is a contorted one aft sold as "Hindu Rope Plant".

    That "pot" is a 14 or 16 inch hanging basket with a built in water well! I have to remember to pour out the excess rain water or risk root rot. Hoya do not like excessive moisture!

    Really? Thanks, Jan! What is the difference between the two? So I know! I do not give mine as much sun as yours probably gets, only very early AM when it is outside.

    Rebecca, they grow about the same. The leaves on Red Button are shorter, less marking and the flowers are much darker. Mine gets more sun then yours so the leaves look more succulant.
    Patsy, it is so easy to get addicted to Hoyas for sure.
    Ryan, I know some of people grow Hoyas in hydroton. They do great in it. The pink Silver is fast grower so you only have to wait 2-3 years. hehe
    Dave, you should check at WM, they have hoyas some times.
