I love the dischidia imbricata. I saw those for sale already mounted to wood with moss. I still don't think I have the humidity for that but it's really pretty. The watermelon is really unique looking as well.

Here's my Hoya window in the bathroom. I took the Rebecca down today and will replace it with something else. I repotted it today and relocated it to another window for now while I figure out what to do with her. The roots weren't the best looking so Rebecca is in rehab.

Do-70 is still happy here and the peduncle is growing. I read that this plant has very tiny flowers.

My other west window has some very wild orchids that hit you in the head as you go up the stairs. I'm going to find homes for the string of bananas (maybe my cousin) and the gracilis lipstick. I don't have any issues with them, it's just prime real estate and I don't LOVE love them.

This orchid has three bloom spikes right now, two coming off of one old spike and a third at the back.

And the other guy has one that branched into two.

So I definitely think we're into something with the old Ohio west facing windows, Mariedorer.

Everything looks GREAT! Your retusa and linnearis are to die for!

Thank you! That linearis was my holiday AND birthday gift (from Youngstown Ohio, mariedorer!) and I am scared to death of it. I know it's native to high altitude/monsoon conditions, but I don't really know what that means as far as care, just that it likes cooler night temps. Maybe that's why it likes the old window. I just kind of pace around it and inspect it up close every day and hope it likes me. It does have a very short, fat peduncle.
The retusa indoors has been more of a challenge than I expected. It looks nice and fluffy but I worry about it drying out.

Your huge retusa or linearis? That scares me because I read that both should be grown dry. Grumbling

Retusa. I had an absolutely huge one. But it dried out and died during the dark days

It seems like they could go crispy really easily. In my mind I was expecting linearis to be less succulent than it is and retusa to be more succulent. I don't know why, it's just what I imagined.

Beautiful plants ladies!!! It gives me some hope I can grow more hoyas here. I'm not able to grow any succulents at all lol.

That linearis is so spectacular! I just keep your average run of the mill ho hum hoyas lol

My compacta has really grown over the year. I had two cuttings, waited for them to grow, propagated and now have 4 in here. It seems happy.

This is a krimson princess I believe, she's the newest one, I think I got it in October. She seems happy enough:

Then this verigated Kerrii is in an East facing, yet still old and very drafty window:

Thumb of 2020-01-29/Mariedorer/a11f1e
I know it's been fine in some admittingly cold nights with that window left opened. Although it's very SLOW growing, at least its growing. It's at it's own pace lol

Great variegated Kerrii! It is #1 on my "must have" list.

Maybe you are onto something with the west facing drafty window theory. Mine are in my greenhouse but, on the "shady" side, its still very bright but drafty, even without the full time fans and the temperature swing is enormous! Between 85 and 65 in winter and more than that in summer.

Here is my Dischidia ovata (my only Dischidia). I got it as a cutting last April - its doing well, finally growing some new leaves. It was a piece with 3 nodes so I tacked down all 3 nodes from corner to corner in the pot. And tucked the ends down because I couldn't lay the cutting flat in the pot I chose (and also, I wasn't sure which way it was growing as it was a center of the stem cutting).

And Macrophylla variegata after the emergency re-pot last week.

Mariedorer, Nice selection of Hoyas you have! Love that Sweetheart Hoya (Hoya kerrii 'Variegata') ... it's a real beauty! The plant in your second photo is actually Krimson Queen Hoya (Hoya carnosa 'Tricolor')

Krimson Queen has green in the center of the leaf and white outer edges.
Krimson Princess has white in the center of the leaf and green outer edges.

Daisy, I love the red on the leaves of your D. ovata. Love H. macrophylla 'Variegata'; that Hoya (Hoya macrophylla 'Variegata') I had a small plant back in 2007/2008 and it's one I think I gave away when I was downsizing! It never bloomed for me that I remember. Sad

Hi Peeps!, Jayce said:
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.

Daisy that Macrophylla variegata is very nice!

The Kerri of mine is one that I rather overlook. He watches me while I wash dishes lol
I actually ordered a regular Kerri and I was sent that verigated one instead! Had to have been a mistake, I didnt complain though! Green Grin!

That looks like a DS-70 to me. For a long time I was calling mine a DS-70/Bilobata because when I purchased it from EA via Meijer it had both names on the label. I was later able to get clarification that Bilobata and DS-70 are in fact different. Bilobata has smaller flowers and the leaves are lighter green and not fuzzy. DS-70 has fuzzy leaves that are Slightly darker green and the flowers are still small but not as small as Bilobata. The flowers are a similar/same color, I believe. Reddish pink. Here's my DS-70 for comparison, Jayzeke.

I love your compacta, Mariedorer. It's so long! Mine grow so slowly. I like how you have it draped on the table too. It's beautiful.

JayZeke, those leaves do look like Wax Plant (Hoya 'DS-70')

edited to correct my typo. 😊
