Greetings fellow Hoyans! Big Grin

I don't know what Cubit means, but I joined anyway Hilarious!

I love Hoyas and want to collect all of them. Hopefully soon, I'll have a greenhouse. Our home was remodeled over the last 14 years with my plant collection in mind. At one point I had 250 plants in the house.

I was chronically ill for many years with multiple immune and autoimmune conditions, but got well with LDN.

LDN = Low Dose Naltrexone --- the off-label use of an old drug that modulates the immune system. This happens through the endorphin system. Kind of odd, but amazingly effective for about ANY immune or auto condition, doesn't matter what it is. I have, so far, introduced 5000 people to LDN over the years, 95% of whom are well on the drug.

If you are interested in learning more, I put together an info packet. Email me at [email protected] and I'll send it.

For work I am a therapist offering a brand new and extremely effective form called "Inner Spirit Therapy".

I will trade telephone/Skype sessions for Hoya plants! Group hug

Here is our website if you are curious: http://www.innerspirit-therapy.com/

Here are the Hoyas I have:

-- H. carnosa (plain green) started as a single deformed leaf taken from a plant outside the room where our grandbaby was born on 4/18/2003. She was 3 years old when the second leaf appeared!

-- H. carnosa (plain green) taken as a bunch of cuttings from a local friend's grandmother's plant. I almost killed it by keeping it hanging near our (HOT!) flatscreen TV, but rescued it in time.

-- H. carnosa ssp. carnosa (not sure of this I.D. I didn't know carnosa could have skinny/pointed leaves!)

H. carnosa 'K Q': don't know where I got it. I am growing it semi-hydro(ton) Smiling

H. arnotiana: received from a long-term collector as a gift. I LOVE it.

I used to have a multiflora, but didn't like the shape (could not train it at all!), so gave it away.

I have recently purchased (waiting for arrival!):

3 from Gardino's -- H. diversifolia, fungii and wayetii

3 from Carol at Aloha (a lovely, generous seller!) -- H. hellwigiana, finlaysonii and cv. Iris Marie. Carol also offered to send a cutting of H. kentiana.

I am eager to have more, so will accept pretty much anything free or cheap. My goal is to be very generous once again with cuttings, and eventually to have the more and rarer plants from which to give/exchange/sell cuttings.

I just today saw the warning about mentioning and posting links to a business on the gardenweb Hoya forum ... so please let me know if it's not OK here to mention what I do for a living. It wasn't mentioned as 'advertising' at all, but I will understand if I should remove it... Smiling
