Hoya globulosa



I bought this hoya as a rooted cutting in May 2002 from Botanova in northern Sweden. When I saw a picture of the leaves of this hoya I just had to have it. And luckily the leaves are gorgeous, because I haven't seen any flowers yet.


I find this hoya rather difficult to grow. It can put out a long new vine and I try to wrap it around its trellis, but it seems it doesn't like it when I wrap the vines to grow down... Each time the tips turn yellow and fall off. I let it grow straight up once and it didn't turn yellow, but after a while I had to force it down and I ended up breaking the vine off. Finally I tried to wrap it as early as possible hoping I could fool the plant int thinking that growing down is okay...


I finally decided that Hoya globulosa and I just didn't get along so I sold the plant about two years ago, but kept a cutting of it. The cutting grew well, but then in the end I decided to give it to my brother instead... That way I sort of still have it and a cutting has now moved in with me again, but if it stays remains to be seen...


On Aug 16, 2007 I received an e-mail from a lady here in Sweden. She sent me photos of her Hoya globulosa in bloom and I was allowed to use them on my website. Almost two years later (July 13, 2009) I received a new e-mail from her and sent me new flowers of her blooming Hoya globulosa. One of those new photos can be seen below. Really nice flowers!
