Hoya carnosa 'Grey Ghost'



The leaves of this hoya are almost completely covered in silver spots and they are absolutely beautiful, but that's the only positive thing I can say about this hoya. It is such a slow grower... I got my cutting in April 2012 and since then it has grown 4 or 5 new leaves and lost a few old ones. The size of the leaves so far is about 5-7 long and 3-4 cm wide. Most of the leaves are covered in silver, but some of them have green spots - so to speak.


The flowers (which I've not even seen on photo) will be a nice surprise when they eventually show up. With this grow rate I think I might see the flowers about when I retire in like 20 years...
