A friend of mine in FLorida is looking for H. linearis. EA is out of stock...anyone have a bigbox store selling them or has a plant to sell?
Leap. The net will appear.

I got a couple of really nice little ones from thevioletbarn.com
They were very reasonable. They have great little polyneura, bella, and 'Louis Bois', retusa, and linearis. Highly rated over on GardenWatch too.

Glad their rating have gone up....a few years ago they were to be avoided....

I got two linearis from them, both have grown well, and each now has a few stems over 14" ( 17 cm. ), one has a stem over 22"; this is in less than 2 months.

Their packing was very good and even though there was no heat-pack, all arrived in good shape, with one exception: the retusas had some freezing damage on the youngest leaves. I was surprised that of all the plants I received, only the retusas were damaged. I would have thought retusa might have some frost-hardiness, but it is from the Western Ghats in India and does not ever see frost. The multifloras were fine; go figure...

The Hoya Gods are fickle!

I've become inspired by Hoyas again...propagated some unusual hoyas today: H. fusca, H. thailandica, H.chlorantha (with a red corona en lieu of the green one)....just pottering...loving it again.

Alert! This does not mean I am going back into a full blown business...just collecting what I want and ...uh...playing....
