Hoyas in October 2015

I have been documenting my blooming hoya species every month. I just go home on weekends, so i record whatever the conditions of the blooms by then.  Sometimes they are already falling especially those which opened early in the week. This documetation will eventually help me plot the species blooming months, as well as those which bloom continuously. Somehow, it will also give me information of the effects of the rainy season or the dry season, which translates to identify the species needing higher humidity to induce blooming.

My other sister who lives in another house a few meters from us,  apparently has different conditions as humidity and shading. I already observed that some species readily flowers with her than in our own garden. Here are some shots that i took early this October.

  8. What unusual flowers they are. I have not been able to grow Hoyas - too impatient I think. Yours are superb.

  9. The Hoya plants are simply incredible. Going home once a week is perfect for documenting the changes! You might not notice the changes as much if you lived with the flowers every minute!
