Hoya "Sweet Scent"



I got this hoya in a trade I made in May 2012. I was going to trade with a guy in Thailand and it was the first time I was sending hoyas to Thailand, so it was a bit nervous. I got mine one day before he got his and they were all in quite good condition. This is definately something I would consider doing again.


There were three hoyas in the box and this cross (hybrid) was one of them. I "fell" for it when I saw the name in the guys list. I didn't know anything about it, but I still wanted it. About one week before shipment I saw some photos of an absolutely wonderful hoya (without name), a suspected cross between parasitica and obovata. I wrote to the guy who posted the photo and after a few messages back and forth we realized I was going to get this hoya in the trade I was about to make. Sometimes even the hoya world is small!


My cutting grew well at first, but then it stopped... but, what does that matter when it blooms quite often instead??!! The first time was in May 2013 so I guess this one qualifies as an early bloomer.
