Hoya sp. aff. burtoniae

 

 


I bought this Hoya in November 2003 as an already nice little plant on a rusty support. I changed it to a hanging plant and it flowered for the first time in June 2004. The flowers are really cute and the fact that they smell like caramel is not bad either! This hoya has had quite a few "names" through the years, but whatever its real name will be in the future it sure is a nice hoya to grow.

 

It's not a Hoya that I would normally buy, but it was cheap and I needed another hanging plant at the time. Now I don't regret it at all. The foliage is quite nice when some leaves turn completely red in the sun... I ended up selling my big plant, but in the summer of 2011 I bought a few small cuttings again and my new little plant bloomed for the first time in May 2012 so it really is an early bloomer. The past few years it has been hanging in full sunshine (unless cloudy of course) and the flowers seem to grow out as soon as the old ones fall off and the leaves are nice red/green from the sun.
