    Aroids, Hoya, and other novelties

    Amongst all the CP's there are a handful of plants that are unusual enough to catch my eye. They include:

    No clue what species this is, but the flowers are powerful enough to fill the living room with floral scent in the mornings. This guy came to me as a cutting, and the person I got it from has had it in the family since 1915, so it's at least a century old.

    Also, got these guys as tubers labeled Amorphophallus konjac, which clearly they were not. Despite what I've heard about this species however, it's interesting enough to me to keep around, especially what with its common name of "Green Dragon"

    Since then I have acquired not only the A. konjac I was after, but several other aroid species, a number of which are already waking up. They may end up shown in this thread, along with my other novelties such as Aristolochia, various Passiflora, etc.

    I have a hoya blooming at the moment myself (H. pubicalyx). though I can't comment on the smell because a respiratory infection has temporarily rendered me unable to smell anything.

    I'm hoping the infection clears up before the blooms expire so I can give it a whiff.

    Ive been looking for an interesting hoya for quite a while now but nothing has ever been enough to catch my eye.
    Except for that pubicalyx. I love the interesting/colorful blooms

    The particular pubicalyx I have is the "Royal Hawaiian Purple"

    I'm also watching out for an. H. macgillivrayi "Pandanus Creek" - gorgeous blooms, those. I bought a cutting, and it has slowly withered away in my care.

    Hcarlton, yours looks like it might be an H. carnosa, which have been in cultivation a long time, and are easy growers, (Based a lot on your given history of the plant) Hoyas are hard to tell apart by just flowers since so many are almost identical, but thought I would throw that out there.

    I also would say Hc's is likely a carnosa.

    This is an old blooming of my mindorensis ... plant has been stubborn with regards to growing for me this past couple years.
