A pair of Hoyas that Bloomed @ SRQHoyas on December 11, 2013

These two hoyas were blooming at SRQHoyas one year ago today and Hoya anulata is also in bloom today!!!  Hoya anulata is quite the easy hoya to grow as the stems are stiff and the leaves are fleshy.  Some of the leaves appear to be variegated but since it is not always the norm I would not classify this species as such.  Hoya tjadasmalangensis has one of the largest leafs if the collection.  The veins are sculpted and the shape of a huge teardrop.  This one is very easy to grow and can be contained if the vines are wrapped around a support when they are young and flexible.

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!
