Yes Christina, I've said it before, and I'll say it again; your site was the inspiration for me to try a site of my own.

Your site was one of the very first I visited when I started looking for websites and it made me very envious, but really excited me to do something similar. What an amazing job you have done with indoor growing!

Thank you so much for all your nice comments. Now I'm even more *Blush* .

I'll try to update more hoyas during my next 4 weeks off from work... And above all, change the front photo since it's from my old house.

Here's part of the jungle in our dining area:

Wonderful...........
What medium do you grow in Christine, and do you have a successful H linearis? I cant remember the lady's name, but I saw an amazing H linearis grown buy a lady over there once......Think she was a friend of Rosita Pettersen. It hung from the ceiling, touched the floor, and seemed to have a room all on its own..........!! No furniture..nothing.... Blinking
Can i also ask why there is an equivelant to ebay in Swedish......cannot remember its name, that only deals in Kroners and dosent ship out of Sweden.....? Grumbling Lots of wonderful cuttings and plants for sale but out of our reach Grumbling Grumbling

My hoyas grow in plant soil, about 2/3, and the last 1/3 is equal parts of perlite, vermiculite and small leca pebbles. I mix until it looks "airy".

Yes, I do have a nice linearis. However, I started it small about a year ago and it's getting bigger, but nowhere near the plant you mention. I remember that plant, but I don't remember who had/has it.

I don't know WHY we have Tradera, but I know that several sellers ship out of Sweden. Mostly within Europe. I always do when I sell there, which is not often anymore since they raised their fees. Any hoya in particular you were looking for? I can always buy it for you (or find it elsewhere) and send it to you. I always calculate 1 Euro to about 9 SEK.

Before going to bed (way too late by the way) I thought I'd inform that I have FINALLY uploaded photos from the new house... well, at least of the windows. Hilarious!

I hope you like them: http://www.myhoyas.com/new-house.htm

Superb! With your winters how do your hoyas fare, and what about humidity there?

Thank you for your comments. Glad you enjoyed the photos.

The winters here in the south of Sweden are normally not as "bad" as up north, but the past two winters we've gotten plenty of snow! In the south we actually have several hours of daylight even in the winter, but up north there's not much for a period of time. Some of my hoya friends up north use artificial light for their hoyas during the winter, but I manage not to. I water less and so far I've managed them even winter time... I hang ceramic "things" (can be seen on photo) on the radiators and fill them with water. When the heat is on during the winter they help raise the humidity some around the plants.

Edited to add that my boyfriend likes cleaning windows... boy am I lucky or what?!
