And hoya sigilatis


Thumb of 2012-02-06/hiloplumeria/433a18

I'm assuming because of there thinner leaves they like to stay moist. I just love the leaves on sigilatis .

Any advice would be great.

And thanks joni. The plants came beautifully . Packed so nice and neat.

Oh, Lucky you! I'd do a search on this cubit if I were you - theres lots of great information - particularly on sigillatis (and everyone's trials and tribulations with this one Smiling :))

I was growing H sigitalis well and decided to lift it to a higher level to get more light........unfortunately it missed out on a few waterings, and I lost it...so I would say keep it moist, but I seem to remember Carol keeps hers dry ??? Carol ?
H buotii does not like to dry out, and the flowers are really lovely and a good size.....here's a pic of mine in bloom...one of my favourites with a lovely scent

Dominic, Is the colour of your buotii true in that picture?. Mine is going to bloom and it's more yellow than pink. I love this hoya tho whatever the colour. I'll try and put a picture of my plant because when it blooms it's covered in umbels.

Steven,
Thanks for letting me know they arrived and my new and improved 'packing' is effective.
I noticed you unclipped the top of H buotii...perfect!!!!

Have fun growing them.
I keep them both moist but not wet.

Dorothy,
My H buotii in bloom is more yellow also....either way is is gorgeous and an easy bloomer and 'rooter'. Thumbs up

Yes, Dorothy...it's a salmon pink color, I've been asked that before by people who have a yellower version....Prob my growing conditions..wasnt bought as a 'pink' variety, or anything like that. To me it has a smell somewhere between peach and salmon..........of the fishy variety.....Strange, but nice.
Another photo of it

When I upload a photo, I use photoshop to try and get the color as true as poss, because they dont always photograph true to color.......my all time favourite was this H mac 'Rainforest', which really did flower this dark for me......Amazing plant...
.Thumb of 2012-02-06/propmaker/32851d

I have an IML 0016 or 0017 which is supposed to be darker...but I'm struggling with that one..maybe one day...:))

Really nice photos, everybody!

Dom, I think I can see a difference in the shape and angle of the corona on your H buotii. Color is very appealing too.

Do you know where this one came from?

Thanks Dom, it looks different than the buotii the other Swedish growers have. Does it have any identifying number or collection names?

I wonder if Ms. Nyhuss sells to any Americans...

Thanks for showing us that gorgeous flower.

Are you still looking for pink & yellow heuschkeliana? Yellow's put on growth and probably will be ready to snip in spring!!... Big Grin

Steven,
I have my H.sigilatis under the lights right now, but either under lights or in the greenhouse or outside, I don't let it go as dry as I do alot of the other Hoya's. And in Hot weather more water. The foliage is gorgeous but even more so in high light.
H. boutii also, I got it very late last fall as a cutting and it's rooted and growing like a weed. I let it dry out a little more than H.sigilatis. This pic was taken when it had been hanging on the porch getting very bright light but no hot
sun. I think your going to really enjoy these two !

It's all about choices.
....H. sigallatis's happiness eluded me for the LONGEST time... I managed to murder quite a few...they rotted out. This one is happy in very high light, very warm (it swings from the top of the greenhouse), very lose 'soil' (actually about 60% hydroton and the rest bark chips and perlite) and it gets watered when it is DRY (when everyone else gets it...about every 5 days these days...3-4 for the smaller pots) and if it's hot/dry weather I spray it down every day with a hose. No "misting" my guys....when it rains in the tropics it strangles frogs!!!!!
