I think this is just a general "run-of-the-mill" hoya, but it has quite a few bloom clusters.

Thank you. I have found that they are quite prone to mealybugs, so they get a spray of alcohol when I see them. Seems to take care of the noxious creatures. Actually, my "Rope" hoya is the worst re: mealybugs.

I had a large Hindu Rope once and also the similar Krinkle Kurl and they were both mealybug magnets. I've never had issues with mealies on other hoyas but right now, the few hoyas I do have are being attacked by aphids!! We've had so much rain and it's been so humid lately, the aphids are having a feast on a lot of plants. Sad

Very pretty... the older plants develop so many bloom spurs.

I've never had mealies on the Hoyas and even have a couple of the crinkled leaf Hoyas. Now I hope I haven't tempted fate by that comment. Whistling

What plagues mine in later summer is the milkweed bugs. They sting the leaves and make them turn ugly or drop off.

Be content moving inch by inch because, by days end, the inches, will add up to feet and yards.

Kristi, those bugs sound nasty, I will be keeping my plants inside, hopefully no bugs sneak in on our clothing and infest them. Glare

They are easy to see and pick off of the Hoyas. That link says they have a short life span. Even shorter if I see them. Whistling

Seriously, you may not have an issue with them in the north. I wouldn't worry but be vigilant.

Sevens Dust takes care of aphids. I had them attacking a succulent mother pot. A friend was going to throw the entire thing away! I said oh please let me save it for you! She said you save it, it's yours! Well I'm game! Challenge accepted! She didn't think I could save it. She said it had worms, ants, mealies and aphids from being outside.
I used the liquid sevens.
I put the entire pot in a garbage bag, let it set overnight. Rinsed it in my shower for about 30 minutes with warm water. Let it drain. (Wow what a mess) I then removed all the plants, rinsed every bit of the dirt, let the sun dry them for a day and replanted after trimming the root systems. I used compost, sand and bonemeal. My plants are green, reds, pinks, like they are supposed to be. I asked if she wanted them back and she said no because I completed my challenge, but she did want starts. 😁
