Hoya sp. Nova 'Honey Pot'



I bought this hoya as a rooted rather expensive cutting in June 2006. It was so ugly and and hard to handle and despite being just one node I had problem keeping it in the pot because the leaves pushed it up all the time. I ended up putting wire around it and out from the bottom holes of the pot! I thought it would grow so that I could cut a better cutting and root. It was just that it took almost two years before I could cut it and root a nicer cutting and even after that it has grown really slowly... maybe one or two leaves each year, but it has such nice leaves that I'll give it a chance to grow up and bloom!


Now that it has grown some I really think the leaves look a lot like the one called H. aff. vitellina IML 1348 and I have taken a photo of the leaves next to each other and you can see it below. I haven't been able to find any flower photos of 'Honey Pot' on the internet and the ones I have are from the seller. If I compare the flowers on photo they look a lot like IML 1348... until it decides to bloom or any other information as to its real name reaches me it will remain here as 'Honey Pot'.
