Hoya subquintuplinervis


This Hoya is one of my favourites. Yes.... I can pronounce it and I can spell it, which is quite an achievement for me. It comes from Thailand and it is more of a bushy plant than a climber, it has a really exquisite fragrance early morning and evening. It's worth a click for the larger view. There doesn't appear to be a lot of photos on the web of this hoya flowering, the only one I could find was one of Christine Burton's, mine seems to have a lot more red in the corona. I hope we get a double dose of flowering like with the Pachyclada.
For our records Hoya subquintuplinervis flowered first in the second week of November 2006

Hi Roy,
This is a marvelous hoya. I never see it in Malaysia before.

By the way, I am YC from Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia. I started growing hoya 2 months ago and I just love it. I hope you could share more hoya culture with me.

Regards,
YC from Malaysia

Hello YC,

Do you know where I can buy a hoya vine? My best friend gave me one but it got wilted. I want to replace it not only for sentimental reasons. I just fell in love with the vine!
