One year’s growth – Hoya verticillata

I spent a couple of hours untangling my Hoya verticillata (bought as Hoya citrina but re-identified. I have now changed the title of all blog posts mentioning this Hoya). This plant is so sensitive and bleeds sticky, white sap everywhere if I accidentally bend the vines or leaves too much. A couple of leaves broke off as well, but that was expected. Round trellises don’t work well for fast growing vining plants like this one, because it’s hard to untangle them when the vines wrap around everything they touch.

It looks so much better now! Hoya verticillata really is one of the prettier Hoyas out there, even when it’s not flowering. The two images show the growth from unrooted cuttings to a full plant in just the span of a year.
