My 2 little beauties finally putting out new growth. Waymaniae came from auraurawa and Borneo from ricfl
The plants look GREAT!
When making new tags, use a number 1 pencil (very soft lead) or if you have a mechanical pencil, use Pentel 2b lead as it is also very soft and makes a good dark line. My labels will crumble before the pencil fades off of the label.
I gave up on permanent markers years ago. Too many faded out and then I didn't know what the plant was.
Another pretty Hoya sp. Kalimantan. This one is from beastlyflowers. It broke during shipment but they've both rooted. Both with new growth pumps :)....came with a mini peduncle!
Hoya cv. Annakay...came from littleshopofhoyas. Nice spotted new leaf!
From yellowgreen2u Hoya wilbergiae
Hoya obscure. Very large and at a great price from yellowgreen2u!!
Deep vein kerrii climbing up carnosa :)
Just an fyi, I am littleshopofhoyas :)
Changed my Ebay ID
cv. Annakey likes it a bit damp (erythrina is a parent), and waymaniae will rot rather quickly if too wet.
They all look wonderful and healthy!
So waymaniae is one of those! Oh no!!...I'm always watering because it gets too hot in the greenhouse and things dry out quick. To be on the safe side I better add more perlite to her mix.
Also, yellowgreen2u has mis-spelled...Hoya wibergiae and Hoya obscura :)
I think my phone changed my spelling on obscura to obscure ha ha.....a lot of my tags are very faded, smeared or I just can't read what they say. I need to make all new tags I think.
Thank you! I will definitely use a #2 pencil from now on!
I used to use a label maker for my tags and it NEVER faded but the tags would break first. I still find tags of long gone plants (not hoyas) from 2009.
Lydia your plants are beautiful and such a unique selection.
If you can find a # 1 pencil, the labels will be much easier to read. A # 1 pencil has much softer lead and so makes a nice dark line on a label.
I've also found that my labels are one-sided; the pencil will write really well on one side of the label and not at all on the other side of the label. How weird!
Are the diff.the waymaniae and the bornero
