Hello Carol:
Would it be okay to put two or three cuttings of the same type of Hoya in one pot (like the cowboyflowerman does?

Awanda lives in Arizona and she has a tremendous amount of hoyas. I don't think she has any problems with mealies there.

Re-reading this thread....and it occurs to me that the sun IS the same sun in AZ as in HI...However, the air is very different. I believe AZ is at a higher altitude, the air is thinner and with virtually NO humidity plants would burn out in the direct sun. Hoyas from high altitudes tend to like shady moist areas....

Thinking about mealie bugs. Generally speaking I find mealiebugs on plants protected from water and air currents....and once they get started it is hard to kill them.We have so much rain here I almost never see mealiebugs .... except on the underside of palms occasionally....along with aphids. I fill the sprayer up with a dishdetergent/oil mixture and suffocate the beasts....

Hello all,

Looks like i missed a good conversation!! I had a stem break off of my Hoya compacta during a storm with lots of wind.I found it on the ground the next morning.I have put it in a pot of soil and i haven't pulled it to look yet but it's looks ok, it's not dying.I was considering potting it in a pot with a small variegated H. compacta.There shouldn't be any problem with that right? That's as close to the same plants as i can get.
I asked for a flower and he gave me a garden,then grand-kids to work in it with me!!!!

I got a a Carnosa Tricolor that came as small starters in one pot. Other than to fill out a pot is it necessary to bunch plants together like this or will they fill out as a single root? In other words, should I leave them together becaue they look pretty or should I eventually split them into three pots. They are nice an root bound now so I don't dare move them.

Also I've some information on this but would like to ask is there is any differnce between Hoya Carnosa Rubra, Exotica, Picta or Krimson Princess. Are these all trade names of the same plant and which is the true botanical name?

Also, are the TriColor and Krimson Queen the same and what is the botanical name for that plant?

They should grow quite well all together! It's when hoyas growing in the same pot have different growing requirements that it gets sticky. The correct names are:

H. carnosa 'Krimson Princess' (H.=Hoya, carnosa = species 'Krimson Princess' = cultivar) with variegation in the center of the leaf.
H. carnosa 'Krimson Queen' with the variegation on the margins of the leaf (the Queen wears her ermine cloak is how I remember it). You might google it. Christine Burton has written extensively about it so you may be referred to PS THE HOYAN which is where she 'talks'.....

Hope this helps.... As for the other names...I think they are all a mess but I've forgotten a lot....

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
