Hoya diptera

 

 


I bought this hoya as a rooted cutting in May 2000 from Botanova in northern Sweden. It has always been a nice fast growing hoya, but I found it to be a bit boring...  until May 2003 when I found the first flowers fully opened and almost completely hitten in the thick foliage.

 

The flowers are absolutely gorgeous! Since I found the first flowers this hoya has developed quite a few new peduncles and new flowers develop on the same peduncle before the old ones fall off!

 

I cut down my big plant and sold most of it before I moved to my apartment in 2008. I only kept one small cutting for myself and it has grown quite well and I've cut off pieces a couple of times and stuck into the pot. Now (April 2011) it's starting to look like a nice hanging plant.
