Finally some flower buds on my huge Hoya australis!

The gigantic Hoya australis I bought from a private seller a year ago finally developed flower buds! I guess it thrives in its new home after having been acclimatized from staying in low light to full sunlight. While acclimatizing to its new surroundings, it got a few sunburns here and there and it survived a traumatic repotting session to give the roots more space to grow. Now it grows even faster than before, rewarding me with flower buds on some of its new vines. I’ll update with pics of the flowers when/if they bloom in a couple of weeks.

Flower bud season has started in my succulent/cactus garden!

It won’t be more than a few days before the first bud opens.
Unfortunately I’m away around Easter, so there’s a good chance that I’ll miss it.
