Hoya brevialata

 

 


I bought this hoya as an already fairly large plant in February 2006. It didn't have any label, but on the shelf where it stood was a sticker with H. incurvula 'Sulawesii' written on it. When I looked for some info on the internet later the same day there was total confusion! In some places it said that incurvula had been changed to brevialata... Not that it surpriced me in this djungle of hoya names, but couldn't it, just this once, be "easy"??!!

 

The plant I bought was a fairly large hanging plant, but it was almost naked on one side... So, I took out my scissors and cut the plant down completely. I planted as many cuttings as I could in fresh soil and when my "surgery" was successful it sure got crowded in the pot! In the spring 2008 I decided to sell my plant to make room for another hoya...

 

The plant bloomed already when I bought it and it was with one flower with six lobes. When the plant started growing after I cut it down it bloomed more or less all the time. It felt like I was always cleaning up dead flowers from the floor, or they got stuck in my socks!
