Super sticky. That is why I am amazed when people have them in doors. But, Kari, worth the clean up with their beauty. 💗 @KariSamuel

Well look who is attacking my #Hoya carnosa. 👎😒 Time to get skooshing! I read that leaving the remains on the plant keeps a reinfestation away. They love the new growth. #aphids #aphid-pestcontrol #hoya-carnosa #southerncalifornia 02/02/2020

@KariSamuel - 🐞 I have not purchased them, although I have quite a lot of aphid invasions. I had them really badly on my tangerine tree that is next to my neighbor's driveway. He wanted to help me with the bugs and sweetly bought ladybugs. He emptied them all out onto the tree and some stayed and lots flew. I have since read that the correct way to 'place' them is to refrigerate them for a bit to slow them, then open their package and just leave them near the aphids. They will wake at their own

...pace, and slowly find their meal. When emptied, they panic and fly. I always say I will get some 🐞, but then don't. 😊 Time will tell. 💞 @KariSamuel

Here is my giant, happy #hoya. 😁 She is looking so much better. She has done really well since I reported to a much larger #container, added a #trellis and moved her to get less sun. #hoyacarnosa #southerncalifornia 5 December 2019

Thank you all for your complements on this giant. I am not sure how old she is, but I'm guessing over 15 years. I tortured this poor plant for years with too much sun and too little water...☹️ life is busy. She is from a cutting from my mother's plant. @cyndi @KariSamuel @RedFuchsia @mardel @Susanandsteve

These are the #spurs that form where all flowers will develop from. The left one shows one without flowers right now. The right is great as it shows how buds are forming on the left of it and mature flowers are on the right. Spurs always form on new growth and should never be damaged.

Does it take a long time for a small plant to mature and flower?

comment
lovestogarden

Not too long, Katy. My son's just bloomed (kept as a houseplant) after maybe two years. His was grown from cuttings rooted in water. It probably bloomed quicker because it already had #spurs formed. These must form before flowers develop from them. I will tag you in a pic. @gjones

comment
lovestogarden

@cyndi, she is real old and needs a good repot, too. I'm not sure how old she is, but I'm guessing my Mother gave a her to me at least 15 years ago. @gjones, she actually gets too much sun, and that is why her leaves are almost yellow. She isn't easy to move, 😁 so there she sits in too much sun. She should have diffused sun or only like two to three hours of full sun.

@Acetaker here is the larger of the two. I think it needs to be repotted again since she is looking a bit peeked. I was going to put it in the ground with a trellis but I didn't like the way it looked.

comment
Acetaker

@lovestogarden I wouldn't put it in the ground either. If it's flowering don't do a repot. I would just do cutting off of it to take some of the weight of growth. Does it get alot of sun where it's at?

4w
comment
lovestogarden

@Acetaker No I was not going to repot yet, but in the future. It was getting quite a lot of sun when I was checking the possible in-ground spot. Now, I have moved it back into my patio where it was before; now it just gets a couple of hours in the afternoon.

@lovestogarden That's good u moved it😊 the color is to much sun as I thought to. I let mine hurt mourning sun afternoon shade about 4-5 hrs of sun. It's so hot this summer that anything that takes sun is going to scorch. Mine has new shoots everywhere, YAYY!👧🙆 I want it to bloom this summer but fingers crossed🙅
