How do you get this darn thing to bloom? I have a pretty nice size plant, loads of penduncles at nearly every node. I have tried bright light, shady, dry, moist....aargh.

It currently is in very bright light (sun under shade cloth) and kept moist, it is thriving but no blooms.

If anyone has any different ideas I would love to try it. I have had this for about 3 years now.

Dee...same here...I was waiting for the peduncles to open for an entire summer so I could shoot a quick photo and cut to share.
I finally gave up....?

Joni do you still have it, have you tried cooler conditions? Maybe I should bring it in the house and put in a south facing window for the light.

Julie I have both and they totally don't look the same at all unless of course the thailandica is what it is Blinking

It's all about choices.
If it's related to H. longifolia...it probably grows like H. carnosa. I would grow it dry and cool. Good for an airconditioned room.

Hello, dear hoya addicts.

I am not very active here, but I wanted to share a picture of this gorgeous hoya with you.
The plant was purchased 2 years ago from SRQ hoyas (thank you Joni).

I did nothing special for it: It grows inside, hanging, rather shady (covered with bigger leaves of other hoyas), with very little substrate (about 100ml ?). No airconditioning in the room (closed the outlet, to keep the plants from cold air draft). The plant has many peduncles, which tried to bloom many times this summer, unsuccessfully, until this one (it had many more buds, but 5 – it is all what was left).

Thank you Olesya :0)
The post is edited, I was not aware I had to upload the images directly, I usually use Imageshack for forums.
Sorry about confusing "pachyclada" watermark - it is my name on all the foreign hoya forums (and my favorite hoya, too).

Really nice! I am growing out a cultivar of H. siamica X H. carnosa (or the other way around?). It's supposed to be lovely, too.

Nice growing!

Group hug Thank you so much for your nice comments!

Cindy, yes, the hoya has a weak smell, but not a very pleasant one, to be honest...

Carol, I didn’t know about the H. siamica X H. carnosa cultivar. I’d love to see the flowers.

And here is the whole plant.

I have received a cutting of the cross which I am growing out. There was a picture of it on facebook posted by Danny in Holland.

Our former employee gave me a small sprout of Hoya scortechinii. For me it was an amazing gift. I have always had a weakness for unusual plants. I can't get enough of this incredible yellow color.
