Rescued this Hoya for someone who had neglected it for years. It was all overgrown with grass and had woven itself around all sorts of things. So I unwound it and pulled out all the grass roots that I could. It was flowering really well so I tried not to damage it too much in the process. Now it's set up with a support to climb, where grass can't get to it and still out in the sun most of the time. I took some clippings home and they're doing quite well. They're at the bottom of trees and have started to climb.

Only thing is no ID. Can anyone help, thanks.

It's all about choices.
I would say you are RIGHT Thumbs up

Just saw a Nat'l Geographic film (part of a series of 6) on the Islands of the S. Pacific and there were about 5 mins. in a certain place in Papua New 3 shots saw 2 hoyas and 1 dischidia (geri) and one of the hoyas was callistophylla. Interesting. Easier than slogging thru the jungle collecting!!!!!

Leap. The net will appear.

Thanks for that, I suspected it might be. One that I placed at the bottom of a tree is really rocketting up.

Yes and no, Carol. Depends a bit whether it's lowland or highland jungle. But all the same, "that feeling" isn't there in the lounge chair.

Ted also thinks it's H.carnosa. My guess would be after all the replies that's it's H.carnosa. Looks really pretty .Looking forward to watching that program Carol.
