My Hoya. lauterbachii is now potted up.in it's new home. Hopefully it will be able to stay here through the winter. I will have to keep a close eye on it. I can hang a heat lamp above it if necessary on those extra cold winter nights, or I can just unhook it and bring it in, and hang it on a hook by the window. I sure hope that all this special love brings me some blooms :) This plant was sent to me by Carol Noel. I took that one long strand, ran i tall the way to the rafters, then down into the soil in the pot, then started it back up the other side of the pot. I believe you said that is what it needs to bloom, and always blooms on it's decent. I did make sure that after I buried the part in the pot with soil, that I took the tip coming up and pointed it up, so it will continue to climb up the macrame, and also maybe root in the soil.

It's all about choices.
In general, the growing UP and then hanging down is how the Eriostemmas grow.... Hope it gets LOTS of sun. I might suggest putting the heat UNDEr the plant (and heat goes UP)... The one thing I would avoid is drastic changes in temperature and environment... they are such touchy little buggers!!!! My fingers are crossedXSXXXXXXXXX

Mine too. It gets morning and afternoon sun now. No sun during the hottest part of the day. Remember it gets HOT here during the day. 100+ degrees. Was 103 on Monday, it's still early enough we could easily reach 110 degrees. Although we have a cold front moving through now. It was only 92 degrees today..hahaha! It's a dry heat! :)

H. Lauterbachii is such a beautiful flower ... I'm wondering if it can survive the weather in San Francisco ... does it require much sunlight at all? I dream to have this flower .. maybe some day I'll have one ..

Aralynn - my H. lauterbachii grows in filtered sun with direct sun midday and it does not bloom well at all...I've planted some cuttings in full sun and am hoping for better performance. This is one eriostemma that does need bright sun/light, warmth and a place to climb... It's spectacular to bloom...but it's very stingy.

Hi Carol ..
I think I might try to get a cutting or plant later to try out see if it grows ... I just ordered a H. archboldiana from Logees ... I'll grow this one first and see how it's doing ..Since it's getting a little cold now ... I hope it will survive during the winter.. I just love H. Lauterbachii because of the big flowers and color ... hehehe ... I love big flowers ... I'm just started to grow Hoyas and I don't have a green thumb at all but so far I haven't killed any of them yet... which I think it's good news to me .. Big Grin I'm addicting to hoyas now ... *Blush* I just want to have them all (or at lease those with big flowers) ... but I'll have to wait and see.. I don't want to kill any of them Angel Thanks for replying my post ...

I have been collecting, studying and selling hoyas for about 10 years. This Cubit is about growing hoyas, and about the hoyas I have to sell. I welcome any and all hoya lovers, whether you want to buy or not. Hooked on Hoyas is another great Hoya sight
