Hoya 'Christine'



I got this hoya from Hawaii in the middle of April 2005. It was a nice size cutting or rather a little plant. It arrived in a package together with 9 of her buddies...


I didn't want to cut the five nodes up so I planted the whole cutting alone. After about one month I noticed tiny buds on the peduncle right above the soil. They soon developed into cute very fragrant flowers that opened at the beginning of June 2005. I had been told it was an easy bloomer, but the lady didn't say THAT easy! Sure it was a fast bloomer, but it hasn't bloomed very often through the years.


 It's now almost eight years since I got it and it's grown quite big and very compact after I cut it in two pieces a few years ago. It seems like a slow grower and my plant grows a little one year and the next it doesn't grow at all... A very beautiful hoya!
