Hi! I will be watching and trying to learn... I have managed to kill with kindness the hoya that I got at the Rice Festival this fall, but I still have 2 wee little babies tucked into pots that I didn't water much. They are all Krimson Queens. I still have the mealybugs that I think came in with the gift plant. I have tried alcohol and it only helped a bit. I have a way-big-o language barrier working against me when I venture out to the area gardening centers so any help that you can give will be hugely appreciated!

Cool. I think I am going to transfer a lot of stuff on my other website over here on growing hoyas etc.

I see you have a language barrier!!! WHOA!

The best thing in the world to keep hoyas clean is Bayer Advanced Tree and Shrub. Don't know if you can get it there. It contains Imidocloprid which is the same stuff one puts on the dog or cat to keep fleas away. Any sucking insect will be killed as it is a systemic and very safe!!!! If you can't find it, you can spray your plant with a good dose of dishsoap in water (not JOY) and really saturate it (cover the pot with a plastic bag and dunk the whole plant). The soap will suffocate the mealies. They hose or rinse it off and...VOILA!!!!

Thanks for the tip! I am going to try to find/request BATS from all of the Army "garden centers" on the upper end of the peninsula. I hope to get some this year... I may have better luck by transliterating Imidacloprid into Hangul and seeing if it is recognized by any of the garden center managers. Thanks again.

Carol,

Is your BATS suggestion only for hoyas that are living outside or should I prepare myself for insects after having these in my house for a while. I plan on keeping them inside, I am not very good at giving my houseplants the treat of putting them outside in Summer, usually they die when I do that so I just keep them in.

Should I invest in BATS?

I have about 10 houseplants, common stuff, pothos, african violets etc, and have never had a bug problem. But I will invest in it.

That's good, I will be curious to know his response as I have this one too. Can you take a close up of the leaves, cause I want to try and compare mine to yours.

Thanks,

Dee :smash:

It IS H. doliocosparte. Here is a photo of the leaves....telltale sign is that the leaves have such recurved margins that they seem cupped....

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
