Hoya flavida IML 0423



I bought my flavida in May 2011 and the cutting that arrived was very generous and could be cut in two. I like having two cuttings in each pot so this was perfect. It rooted quite fast, but didn't grow much in the beginning. The first couple of years it had to stay in our basement, but eventually it had become big enough to move to our dining room window where there is plenty of sun - when it's sunny that is. A hoya with wonderful foliage!


It took three years before the flowers showed up, but they were sure worth waiting for. Absolutely beautiful flowers opened in July 2014 and since the summer was very sunny the flowers were more red than orange as they are supposed to be - so to speak. Since then it has bloomed one more time and then the flowers were more "normal" orange. Even the buds are gorgeous!
