Hoya hellwigiana IML 1101

 

 


I got this hoya from Hawaii at the end of May 2006 and then it was "only" called hellwigiana. After som questions and answers I found out that it really should be called aff. hellwigiana IML 1101. Today (May 11th 2007) I have once agian received information that it should be called hellwigiana without the aff. The cutting was quite large and I could cut it up into two cuttings (se photo below) and it also had a peduncle on which it grew buds before it rooted and wouldn't that have been the best hoya joy if it had bloomed already as a cutting! Unfortunately the buds fell off and a few days later also the peduncle... My plant has grown quite well and in April 2007 i found a new peduncle and tiny buds... I didn't have any real expectations, but the buds grew bigger and rounder each day and got a lovely red colour from the sun. I got to see the flowers on May 9th and I was able to see when they opened. Always exciting with a first time bloomer!
