Hoya collina (sp. Biak)

 

 


I bought this hoya as an unrooted cutting in May 2005 from Botonova. This was the first time I had to root a hoya from them... However, it rooted quite fast and started growing slowly. I find it a slow grower, but that could be just when it's young. What do I know?! The leaves look almost like it could be a large leafed dischidia and the leaves with lots of spots are really nice. I kind of like the yellow flowering hoyas so this is a nice addition to my collection. I hope!

 

In November 2005 I just couldn't resist buying a fairly large plant of this hoya. Unfortunately it dropped a lot of its leaves during the winter, but it sure compensated that since it grew new vines in just about every leafless spot! The only problem I now have is that the new vines are quite stiff and difficult to bend in place as they grow... The new vines grow slow, leaves fall off during the winter and new vines grow out here and there... A somewhat boring hoya!

 

I ended up selling my little cutting after I bought the bigger plant, but perhaps I should have kept it and it would have bloomed sooner than the big plant, because it took more than five years before I got to see the flowers for the first time in November 2010. After that it seems to bloom all the time! I often find dead flowers both on the window sill and on the floor...
