I have this plant too, but it hasn't yet flowered for me. It sure loves to grow up and up.

Very few of my hoyas spend the summer outside, but the ones that do (about 8 or 9), I keep in a car port that gets good light but only very early morning direct sun. I used a tip I'd heard that when bringing the plants back in the house for the winter, to make sure that the temperature inside is approximately the same as the temperature outside. None of the hoyas that spent the summer outside had any trouble acclimatizing back into the house. In fact one had huge buds on it, H. motoskei, and I was resigned to losing them, but they didn't blast, they continued to grow inside and opened within about a week. Lovey dubby

In fact only one plant got upset this year and it was a hibiscus that lost all its leaves and proceeded to start flowering. Rolling my eyes. It behaves this way every year no matter what I try. We call it the 'Drama Queen' because it'll go completely limp when it needs watering, whether inside or out, and within a half hour of watering, it is a completely perky and lovely plant once again.

Oh, right, this is about hoyas... Whistling

So, once I have a better set up outside, I'll be taking more and more hoyas out to the car port for the summer. DH keeps reminding me that the car port is for the car, but for some reason I keep forgetting... Rolling on the floor laughing

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
