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.
