Hoya vitiensis



I got this hoya in a trade in September 2002. It was an unrooted cutting and it took quite a while before it rooted, but when it did it grew faster than I had expected, especially in the beginning. The thin leaves hang down making the foliage look thicker than it really is.


My vitiensis grew its first peduncle in October 2003 and by accident I had a day off when the flowers opened. I had only seen pictures of these flowers before, but they looked even better in real life. I had perfect late fall morning sunshine when the flowers opened and I managed to get some really good photos of the flowers. Since then it seemed to have new flowers all the time... One time it flowered with both "normal" and yellow flowers at the same time! Why that happened? I have no idea, but they sure looked cool!


Personally I think this is a hoya that all hoya collectors should have in their collection!
