A true beauty is getting ready to bloom as it did least year at the this time! A beauty in the world of hoyas with it’s unusual red colored flowers, Hoya ilagiorum is a must have for all collections. This one is very easy to grow and is easy to forget and neglect. I believe that whatever part of the world you growing this hoya, these flowers are exposing themselves to you around this time of year. Go ahead and add this one to your Wish List because it grows quickly and I also have been rooting a few for you to obtain as a Plant.
I have been collecting and recording information daily on which hoyas are in bloom for quite some time now and would like to compare facts about when each species is in bloom. Are the same hoyas in bloom all over the world at the same time? Go to my Bloom Calendar to see which hoyas were in bloom on a specific date at SRQHoyas. Your comments may help me draw conclusions as to what triggers a hoya to bloom and what factors may contribute to when they bloom. To date I have not been able to suggest with confidence as to how to make a hoya plant bloom. Is it related to fertilizer?…light intensity?…temperature?…maturity?…humidity?…air movement?…geographic location? If you have any information, opinions, concerns or comments on anything you are learning about the ‘Bloom Times’ of hoyas…please feel free to add a comment to this blog, email me through the website or post on Facebook!
