Hoya pottsii



I got this hoya in a trade in May 2003. It was then called Hoya ridleyii, but experts say that the hoya in circulation with that name should be "just another Hoya verticillata". To me it looked more like one of my Hoya pottsii, but then I'm no expert... Perhaps I don't have the "real" ridleyii...? It grew fast at first but it had a swing of root mealies about one year after I got it so I cut it back and rerooted it. I saved the best looking cuttings (rather long) and potted them. They rooted fast and have now grown into a nice looking plant. Now that it has flowered it turned out to be a pottsii...


The leaves are 6-12 cm long and 3-6 cm wide.  They get a little red in the sun and the visible veins are lighter. It also seem that the leaves get red spots from the sun. It's otherwise healthy so that's all I can think of... The first flowers came in April and already there are new ones on the way!

The flowers are pale yellow corolla, white corona with some red in the middle. The size is about 2 cm, reflexed and you would find 25-40 flowers in an umbel. The flowers last a little more than a week and they have a really nice fragrance.
