Flowers lasted couple of days, smell is not that great but it is very very light.Grown in partial shade with couple of hrs of morning sun. Leaves turn lovely coppery pink.

Lovely Alka....

It has gotten quiet, hasn't it?

If you are on Facebook, there are quite a number of groups there.... Hoyas101+ is a good discussion/questions place...

Aloha,
Carol

I saw that one. Used to be open group but now is a closed group. Probably to keep out bad posts.anyway, I clicked'join the group' since I miss all that hoya discussion. Tell you the truth, I am not a big fan of FB, too creepy some times.

But what happened to people here, did they all just move to face book?

FB is almost beyond creepy.... but it's fun at times.

Yes...the group WAS open but there was so much SPAM on the site we made it closed...voted on it, in fact!!

Thanks Julie, I love patella. I got cutting last year ,it rooted well but roots kept showing above soil as if it is going to fall out of the pot. Now it is better and seems like I may get more flowers. Very pretty but no scent.
Yes.. Carol, FB is fun sometimes and a nice way to keep in touch with distant friends and family.

Hoya cumingiana...blooming fir the first time in 2 years since I had it. Pretty leaves.
Smells fruity with coconut flavor added. Very nice scent.

I'm still here too. Big Grin I don't post often, never have been a big poster. (I guess just like in my everyday life I'm a very quiet person) But I check in at least once a week and sure have learned a lot from you all.

I check every day or so to see what beautiful blooms and flowers everyone has. My blooms are not large enough to show.

That is a good idea. I would probably do the same.

How do you get H. cummingiana to bloom ? I have mine for more than a year and there is no sign of any flower at all Sad Sad

Probably just got lucky. I read it likes a lot of sunlight and not much water. Followed that ,some leaves even got sun burn.And a few times gave it a a bloom fertilizer (orchid fert commonly sold at Lowes ). I have mine for almost 3 years and this is first time it bloomed. It may be one that needs to get a bit mature before blooming. Mine has several peduncles now.

Aaralynn,
H. cummingina loves benign neglect. But usually...starts blooming around the mid-end of May for me then will continue right up till the end of October or so. I fertilize 1/2 strength Jack's 20/20/20 in spring, then unless we are not getting rain I water when it's fairly dry. It does like to be root bound too !

I keep looking to see if anyone is posting pictures of their beautiful flowers. I picked up a Hoya danumensis this spring and it is in full bud. I am crossing my fingers that I actually see flowers soon so I can post and we can vote on whether or not this plant was identified correctly.

This plant hasn't bloomed yet but it was labeled as Hoya danumensis. I think the bumps on mine suggest it was correctly labeled. . Crossing my fingers...... Thumb of 2014-07-06/Alchemist9/0eb9a8
