    Hoya Carnosa in bloom

    First bloom ever, I'm so excited! I've heard great things about the fragrance, I can't wait.
    3 stalks so far...

    Looks great - congrats!! I grow some hoyas as well. My H. lacunosa "sno caps" has been in bloom non-stop since August of last year. It's very fragrant as well, most noticeably at night. My H. pachyclada and H. pubicalyx "red buttons" are putting out some peduncles now. Can't wait to see their blooms. I love these plants!

    That's beautiful! I love your hanging plants on flickr and I have a huge papyrus plant as well. August of last year sounds amazing. I know some people who have never seen a Hoya bloom, in fact most people here don't know that they can bloom. I guess we are both blessed by good light
    I have only one hoya plant. I've never paid much attention to it so this bloom is a total surprise.

    Thanks! I actually regret getting that papyrus. It's gotten even taller since that photo and it's all over the place. I'll be putting it outside for the summer, which will help my living room feel less like a jungle!
    I'm relatively new to hoyas (nearly a year now). I have 2 large ones (the ones at each end in that photo) and they show no signs of blooming. I got that at a large chain hardware store here, so I don't expect much from them. Beautiful foliage though!

    What a strong and gorgeous scent! The honey is sweet as well, this is truly an experience...

    Wow that looks amazing! How long have you had this plant?

    Nice! About how long is it? I got a small Hoya macgillivrayi last season and it's turning into a monster.
