    I'd be interested, I've been thinking about Hoya a little bit now and then, but you really got me with the peanut butter scent haha.

    Oddly, my Hoya grows in rather low lighting and does just fine.... has 4 bunches of flowers more on the way.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.

    This is very low lighting--too low for even low light houseplants. I've completely given up trying to grow anything there. The windows are like being at the end of a cave due to shade from the unit above and the walls of this one. Even outside, immediately on the other side of the window, it's too shady for almost anything.

    So, I am a big fan of irises (1), especially odd ones or plants with dazzling or deep colors (2). THis guy I planted last year, and he has now thrown out a handful of flowers, with many more to come, and has well surpassed my expectations. Bonus points to anyone who can guess the third main reason I love this plant!

    All the aroids have fully awakened
    Amorphophallus dunnii by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
    Amorphophallus konjac by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
    These two have since fully unfurled
    Amorphophallus symonianus by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
    Amorphophallus yuloensis by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
    I almost lost one of these guys in the repot, but they're all growing again
    Passiflora pinnatistipula by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
    This one needs a repot. You can also see the new antioquiensis seedling in the background

    And, the begonias are maturing

    This guy went back into bloom, with 5 open bunches at once at one point

    The seeds of these guys, I couldn't get to sprout and stay alive for nothing inside, but a soon as they were thrown outside..
    Proboscidea louisianica by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
    4 of 5 of these seeds sprouted
    Casimiroa edulis by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
    Unlike every other aroid, this particular plant went weird, two leaves from the same tuber
