Hoya caudata ‘Gold’ produces Two Sets of Twin Peduncles

Highly sought after Hoya caudata ‘Gold’, produces two sets of twins, while it prepares to bloom for the fifth time this winter season.  This is a rare occurrence in my experience with this hoya or any other hoya in my collection.  Although many hoya bloom on multiple peduncles at once, they tend to form at different nodes along the vines.  Hoya caudata is following through at many nodes but also doubling up at these particularly fertile nodes.  As I further examine the photos, the bloom spurs are actually growing from separate nodes but I will still consider them Twins!
