It's all about choices.
I returned home to find a bunch of hoyas blooming.... Thumb of 2012-10-01/AlohaHoya/867184 H. australis Lisa is covered with blooms and the wonderful fragrance which to me is of baby powder.

H.subcalva. This one has been blooming all summer which tells me I have the growing conditions all dialed in: growing it dry, low-ish light.
Thumb of 2012-10-01/AlohaHoya/f77aac

H. danumensis - for the first time in about 8 years this hoya is NOT a problem child for me. She is growing rampantly and nearly always full of blooms now. I have moved her to higher light.
Thumb of 2012-10-01/AlohaHoya/541785

H. chlorantha var. tuituilensis...
Thumb of 2012-10-01/AlohaHoya/79d378

H. plicata

I finally managed to get out this evening and get a few October blooms myself!!! Hurray!

First up is H. multiflora variegated. You can't see the variegation in the photo but trust me it's there!

Thumb of 2012-10-04/dmichael619/055695

H. rigida,one of the Thai clones from Epiphytica nursery

Thumb of 2012-10-04/dmichael619/a6774d

H. australis ssp. rupicola IML 1754

Thumb of 2012-10-04/dmichael619/e529a0

H. obscura IML 1003--looks basically the same as any other clone of hoya obscura only a slightly larger version but with the same wonderful scent--one of my favorites for it's smell

Thumb of 2012-10-04/dmichael619/692f99

H. aff. mindorensis. this particualr clone of mindorensis is amazing. This is the first time that it has bloomed this color. To explain what I mean by that i'll just have to start a whole new thread dedicated specifically to this hoya along with a lot of pictures!!

Thumb of 2012-10-04/dmichael619/a52cb0

H. sp. Kalimantan with a few visitors

Thumb of 2012-10-04/dmichael619/ad9047

H. padangensis

Thumb of 2012-10-04/dmichael619/7166ab

H. acuta IML 0079 --I don't know what sort of moths these are but there are quite literally thousands of them in my gh right now. I'm not exaggerating when I say there's so many of them that you can actually hear them flying and bumping against the plants and gh covering. I have as you can see from the photos quite a number of hoyas currently in bloom so my guess is that before much longer there will be seed pods galore!!!

Thumb of 2012-10-04/dmichael619/17627c

H. acuta albomarginata also covered in those little moths

Wonderful photo's, and I'd like to see more on your H. aff. mindorensis also. That's another one on my want list, as the one I have as done quite well for me.
Your H.. obscura IML 1003 looks very similar to mine...only photo I was able to grab didn't turn out well and I wasn't able to get out there and get another one and it hasn't bloomed again yet. ( that's what happens when your in a hurry...grrrr).
Cool on the moths. I'd be interested in seeds if you decide to make them available.

I know I promised a story about the aff mindorensis but I can't seem to put my hands on all the pictures that I need to get that together!!! Anyway the story without the pictures is that the aff.mindorensis tends to bloom in many colors all on the same plant. It has bloomed in various shades of peach to yellow and pink to almost dark red. there has been a few times that it actually had multiple umbels of flowers open at once and they'd be different colors. The plant originally came from Antone Jones who used to live in Floria and had a very impressive collection of hoyas!

nice pics Alka. I have to go and check my numms now and see if they are all budded up. I really like the plumeria also.

I got one new pic to share today of H. erythrostemma IML 1188

Thanks Carol and David.
David, very pretty erythrostemma. I like how it has fuzzy corolla and pretty pink corona.
