I'm doing some housework and such today and decided to try to water all my plants I don't always get to. So lo and behold I think my tiny Hoya Curtisii grew a peduncle!

Thumb of 2020-01-08/Mariedorer/22cf03

I've only grown it from a tiny little cutting I started rooting in October of 2018. So talk about feeling proud!

I'll take any advice/tips anyone has to give but I mainly wanted to share my joy and exicitment in this little guy!

Hurray! Congratulations! That is indeed a peduncle!

Are you sure that your plant is Hoya (Hoya curtisii) ? The leaves on your plant remind me more of Hoya (Hoya nummularioides) Here are side by side photos from our database (blue links above) for comparison:

It does look like a Hoya nummularioides leaf, but whatever it is congratulations Hurray! Hurray! Hurray!
If it is curtisii, maybe you could give me some tips! Hilarious!
Mine is one of my high stress plants that's always giving me trouble! I don't think it'll flower in my lifetime Thumbs down

Thank you! Maybe I just need to accept that this one is never going to be as mild mannered as the others. It's mad at me if I water it, it's mad if I don't, it's mad if I glance in it's direction Hilarious!

My Hoya curtisii is watered daily BUT, is planted in cork or something - it dries instantly.

Really!? Maybe I'm not watering it enough. My mix dries pretty quickly. Not daily, but quickly.

It most definitely could be that other hoya.

This one is very easy but I attributed that to the fact that I've grown it from a two node cutting and it has always been used to the climate in my home. It's actually not very ideal conditions for a hoya. It's been in the windowsill of a west facing window, which is great but right below it are our baseboard heaters... ugh I don't even like those things!

It does stay relatively on the dry side. In fact before today, I cant even remembered when I watered it previously. Poor thing!

I will hopefully be able to correctly identify it when it blooms. Crossing Fingers! I still cant believe I overlooked it! Also i seem to be getting a bloom on croton right now. I'm going to keep an eye on it and will post it within the next few days.

Feel the leaves. If they are rubbery or soft, water. If they are crisp, don't.

That reminds me, H. Ovata has rubbery leaves... I got it as a cutting about a month ago. It was either pay $7 shipping or a buy another plant to qualify for free shipping. So it was free, right? Smiling

It also looks like Mathilde, now that I think about it. You have a mysterious Hoya!

The leaves of Marie's plant don't look anything like Hoya 'Mathilde' to me.

My hoyas always stay on the dry side; better a little dry than overly wet. Be sure you don't change the normal care of your baby, or move it from one location to another or it may blast the peduncle and then you'll have to wait possibly a long while for it to produce another.

Here are the leaves more close up as well as one comparison next to a krimson queen (hope I have that one correctly identified Confused ). It is very small. It's only in a 3in pot. I have two vines over a foot each and two more sections rooting (hopefully).

I do keep it really dry, it was due for a good drink yesterday. I hope that doesn't mess with the peduncle. It went right back into it's normal spot.

I'm certainly not a betting person, especially not on Hoya. Hilarious! I do love a plant mystery, though.

Here is a closeup of my Hoya nummularioides for comparison. The leaves are quite fuzzy and solid green. They do not show veining. I notice yours has a bit of the "splash" pattern.

I agree, mathilde doesn't look right. I move to strike that suggestion from the record. I don't know how to add the links to plants in the database, but I'm also seeing a dash of Hoya Krohniana. Hopefully time + that peduncle will reveal its identity. Hurray!

Here's our database entry for Wax Plant (Hoya krohniana) that Adrienne suggested and it does look like a possible match!

Actually, now that I look at the pictures and see the term eskimo, I believe it is a Hoya Krohniana! Good eye! :hurray:

I was going to say Lacunosa but maybe because I have one...

I believe krohniana either was previously or still is considered part of the lacunosas, so that would make sense.

The telling factor is that the venation pattern is identical....the lateral veins go straight out no curve
