    Yes to Hoya carnosa.

    There's a chance your Green Dragon could also be our native species:

    Here in the NE we have two different aroids called "Green Dragon", our native Arisaema dracontium, and the highly invasive Pinellia ternata, sometimes referred to as "The Green Dragon From Hell".
    Judge not lest ye be judged creates a cesspool. Judge others and prepare to be judged by them.
    Just know when to keep the verdict to yourself.

    Fairly certain of the ID of the aroid at this point. It's not large enough to be the Arisaema species, and doesn't fit the ternata description.

    I like the spiky look of that Mindorensis.

    Not really a novelty, however I ran into these very handsome Violas
    the other day and I couldnt walk away. This particular batch has very dark
    orange tinged edges and heavy veining.

    My main Pinellia has gotten huge, with the biggest leaves spanning nearly 18"

    Also, received seeds of this plant a few months ago, and planted only 4 of them, but got 100% germination

    And, the aroids are all starting to move more quickly

    Two species, A. yuloensis and A. symonianus, are also awake, but haven't quite left the soil surface yet.
    Begonias are starting to hit the second growth stage

    And, anyone here good with ferns? One of many puled from the Nepenthes pots

    So since last time the aroids have really stepped it up
    This guy is kind of floppy, the long stalks enjoy leaning on everything else at this point
    T. venosum by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    This one was under the shelf, so the leaves were splayed out, but has since gone erect again, and is well over a foot tall, may be exceeding 18" now
    A. konjac by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    And this one... well, even without flowers this year there are jokes running through my head just looking at the stem...
    A. dunnii by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    My other two species are much further behind, but are awakening
    A. yuloensis by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    Of this species, I have this main bulb, and a second intercalary bulb that is also sprouting
    A. symonianus by hawken.carlton, on Flickr

    I have a Hoya ciliata that really needs to find a new home. I have it in a window, and my natural light through windows is pretty minimal. It's alive, but struggling. In theory I could move it under lights, but I think it would prefer a new home. It's too cool outside, although frost free. Free for postage. Hawken, or anyone else? This is the "black Hoya", flowers are supposed to smell like peanut butter. I got a cutting in a trade a while ago...
