A few more Hoyas

We are just into our Winter now in Australia, so our Hoyas are into a period of dormancy and there is no flowers to post at present. The top photo is H. obscura and H. lacunosa growing in terracotta pots. They seem quite happy and healthy and should flower in the Spring. Where possible I've been placing Hoyas at the base of potted Fig trees. The one pictured is a Ficus cultivar called "Sultan" I've placed H. "minibelle" on this one because of the leaf similarity and it's just starting to climb nicely.

Hoya macgillivrayi leaf problem.

I have this H.macgillivrayi leaf that has developed a white patch. The other leaves are O.K. and this leaf is still green on the back. I'm not sure if it's fungal or something is attacking it. I've asked the knowledgeable folk on Hoyas'r'us for a possible diagnosis. Click on picture for larger view. Thanks Roy.

Hoya lobbii

This Hoya has an unusual spreading habit, probably a hard one to grow for some one with limited space. It reminds me of a swooping bird. I suppose I'll have to prune it soon.
