Good topic Carol! I can't dispute any of your observations. I would only add that certain Hoyas seem to be brought into bloom based on a specific photo period at least for me. I seem to have very good luck bringing the Mac/Archie complex into bloom where others are not so lucky. I find that they need a certain number of 12 hour days (12 daylight hours) in order to bloom for me. I would add that serpens seems to need the increasing daylight hours of spring time to bud up and flower. Others such as the Australis complex seem to need the decreasing daylight hours of fall to come into bloom.

As far as fertlizers are concerned I fertilize with almost every watering at about half the reccomended strength of a complete fertilizer - I mostly use MSU, but there are many great ones out there.
