Congratulations! Always fun :D plus they look healthy. I'm waiting on an order of plants too.. Who did you get these from?
I got some plants from Joni back in May, my lacunosa looked terrible! I was really surprised.. It's been losing leaves ever since.
(edit: oh! Joni just sent me a C-mail about it, I really should have emailed her a long time ago. She is helping me sort everything out!)
I just wonder what some of those hoyas are in the tray that you sent me. I don't really have to know because I also like the mysteries but they're all so healthy and doing great.. Just beautiful...I wouldn't sell any so the labels are not important to me.
Hi Daniel...yes, my H. megalaster is over 3 years old...it does send out long vines..mine currently has 2 vines that are at least 2 feet long. My experience with this hoya is that the vines rarely send out leaves, and the vine eventually dries up..one node at a time. My H. megalaster is just about the same size as when I received it in 2009. Perhaps I'll get lucky and someone on this forum, who grows H. megalaster, will tell how to grow this hoya so that it actually "grows", and not send out vines that are leafless and eventually dry up. I keep my megalaster somewhat moist and in shaded light...it looks healthy, but has never grown much. I did get a couple new leaves last autumn, but they ended up drying up and falling off. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Daniel, I wish you much more success with this hoya than what I've experienced...I do love this plant...just disappointed in its lack of growth. Fondly, Patrick

At one point in my life I grew this one successfully....and it was growing on the dry side. Ted Green has a great one growing and his grow on the dry side as well...with very high light (in fact it is outdoors under a thin canopy of trees). Maybe that will help.
