Hoya camphorifolia

 

 


This little hoya was bought from Botanova in northern Sweden in May 2002. It was the best-behaving little hoya you could ask for - in the beginning! It flowered already in July 2002, but then it was just downhill from there... The leaves fell off and the peduncles fell off, but it kept on growing a little. The summer of 2003 I decided to cut it up into pieces and rooted some of the bigger ones. That seemed to do the trick. It grew a nice thick foliage and lots of new (and old) peduncles... Quite a few summer in a row it flowered several times with A LOT of flowers at the same time! After such many flowers it seems this hoya is close to dying... At least it was for me and normally I would save some cuttings and start over, but I never did so I lost the plant a few years ago. It feels like I've had enough of this hoya!

 

The flowers are among the more difficult ones to photograph, but I did my best...
