Hoya vitiensis was the Lone Blooming Hoya on this Date Last Year

I no longer grow this hoya but I sure remember the nice velvety lavender flowers as being one of my favorites.  I am hoping to find it once again to add to my collection. If you have a plant or cutting to trade/purchase please contact me!  It’s a fast growing dainty vine that is easy to manage and fills out quickly.

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!
