Hoya australis ssp. tenuipes 'Lisa'



I bought a cutting of this one in April 2005. It was for a friend, but when I came home she had changed her mind and I wasn't unwilling to keep it myself even though I told myself I had no room for it. It was only a little cutting! For a long time it was nothing more than a large cutting and developped a few new leaves and in the end it moved to my brother. It has started growing, but all the new leaves are really small... Bonsai-hoya?!!


By accident (addiction?) I found a really big plant of 'Lisa' just a couple of days ago and I just had to buy it. So now I don't have to wait for the cutting to grow big. There was even a peduncle in the new big plant but I had a small accident and it's no longer there. Stupid, I know! SInce then it has grown new peduncles and flowered a few times. I got to see the flowers for the first time in September 2007 and since then it has bloomed a couple of times... Unfortunately most of my big plant was lost during the winter and all I managed to save was a couple of small cuttings that I'm trying to keep alive.
