It's lovely! Can't wait to see the blooms!
Forgive me if I've asked this or if you said it in the thread, but how much sun do you give it?

It sits right on an uncovered West facing window ledge, so it (sometimes) gets some direct rays in the afternoon. Of course the other conditions are not ideal at all. The windows in this house are OLD so I'm sure it feels cold at times. Also, our baseboard heat is a few feet below it. So the soil really dries out quickly. I really have to check the plants in that area more often this time of year, but they all have been just fine!

That is so funny! My lucky Hoya window is a west facing window in an old house with an old drafty window! For some reason they really like it in my window too and it's where my DS—70 is starting to bloom.

That's awesome Adrienne! Maybe we're on to something. Make sure to share pictures!!
I have a pretty long carnosa compacta in the same window, its put out some impressive growth this winter, but no signs of any blooming yet. Glare

Darn! No west facing drafty windows. Wait, no west facing windows drafty or otherwise. Rolling on the floor laughing

Maybe it's because they can really feel the drop in overnight temperatures in a drafty window yet they still get the warmth and sun in the day. I'll post some pictures tomorrow.
I have my linearis and Rebecca there as well, but Rebecca is a bit of a drama queen and dropped a peduncle today literally into the toilet as I was taking her off her hook to water. I think she was trying to send me a very strong message that something isn't working for her. Now I need to find out what. I think it's her pot.
One of my other west facing drafty windows is my lucky orchid window and I had two of my orchids in bud or bloom literally all 12 months of 2019. I'm now looking to ditch a couple of plants that are just lukewarm in my heart (a string of bananas and a gracilis lipstick plant) also in that orchid window so I can move some Hoyas there.

Don't you hate it when your plants thumb their noses at you?

I've never had any orchids but from what I've heard, that would be a perfect spot for them!

I do. I just want to say "anyone else would be happy in the lucky Hoya window! What's your deal?!" But I think this is maybe a different situation. This is the first Hoya I got with thinner, veined leaves and I'm not entirely sure how I should treat it compared to the larger succulent leaved varieties I mostly have. I heard it's a cross between a variety of lacunosa (which was my first Hoya and has been very laid back for me) and obscura, which I know nothing about. Maybe I should look into obscura and see if Rebecca takes after that parent more than lacunosa. Regardless, I do think this plant needs to be repotted and possibly watered more often. I'll post a picture later to show what I mean.

I have found curtisii to be really easy. Its a climber for sure, wants to run all over the place. Mine is growing right on the greenhouse wall, which is one of the coolest places...the Lexan is only I think 4 or 6 mil (rigid) so when it gets cold outside the walls are cooler than the air. Its like the air in the immediate windowspace in a house, its always a little cooler there. But nothing I have growing on the wall seems to care including this hoya.

I don't want to speak too soon but I think I finally cracked curtisii in my environment. I Had been growing it dry in high light and I read 2-3 places that I should dry it in high humidity shade. So I put it under my monstera with a humidifier and like overnight it stopped being dramatic. I also started watering it more because it was daisy I believe who waters it often with success? Now I'll spend the next several months fretting over this Rebecca like I did the curtisii.

I remember the photo of your curtsii on your greenhouse wall, Gina, and it's a beauty. It really is a unique and cool Hoya. If I recall correctly it was growing sideways and quite large. I was reading somewhere, I think it was ted green (but I might be completely wrong so don't hold it against me) didn't think it belongs with the Hoya but instead the dischidia.

Yeah Ted was an opinionated guy (I should say IS LOL he's still around). I was on forums with Ted 20 years ago. He and a guy named Mike were real hoya experts. Ted has his opinions about these plant because he is actually responsible for trekking out into the wilds, collecting plants and introducing them to the plant trade. They do superficially resemble the watermelon dischidia and some of the others, and their growth habit isn;t much different. They will shingle like most dischidia will and can be grown without soil on moss mounts like Dischidia

That's what it says on his page, as I'm sure you know! It says he's responsible for X amount of the Hoya available for sale right now. I forget the exact number. I like to go to his page and read the notes about the Hoya I have although isn't he in Hawaii? Probably not comparable to my indoor growing conditions
And didn't you used to be on forums with a lady named Christine who grew indoors? I've been checking a page called myhoyas, I believe and I've found that helpful as well because her plants seem to be inside from what I can tell.

Oops, it's Christina and she's in Sweden. Her page is really informative though.

This is my watermelon dischidia. Its the mounted plant in front....the hanging pot has some sort of epi-cactus in it whose identity escapes me
Thumb of 2020-01-29/Gina1960/b874d5

Close-up...it has a nice variegation and has started to climb up the mount. Which means I will be moving it to one of the big tall coir wrapped totems. I don;t want it to start climbing on the cooling system honeycomb. This plant is years old, and is making a comeback from extreme neglect
Thumb of 2020-01-29/Gina1960/3384c1

This is one of my Dischidia imbricata...it has peduncles all over it. It blooms pretty frequently. Its running up this totem about 8 feet. Kind of took over LOL
