Unboxing Hoya from Thailand

Unboxing Hoya from Thailand, this video was taken last year when I received my first orders of Hoya from Thailand. It is a bit late upload. The reason why it’s late because I don’t have enough time to do and my computer is really slow. Luckily, my son allowed me to use his computer to edit and combine all the clips.

So much for that, the Hoya I received were a lot of yellow leaves and most of them really did not survive. There are five Hoya out of twenty five different hoya who have survived and thriving. Ouch!!! yes, really hurts!!! but what can I do? I’m still happy for the remaining ones, they are champion.

The whole experienced of ordering Hoya outside the country is a mixed feelings of excitement and nervousness.

Here are the list of the Hoya in this video:

  1. Hoya CV Ruthie
  2. Hoya Mcquilivry
  3. Hoya Optomistic
  4. will continue soon the listing soon.

Hoya Meliflua (Hoya #7)

This is my Hoya Meliflua. The plant just grow tall without any branch.

Hoya Meliflua has rigid leaves that don’t show any vines. According to the Wikipedia this Hoya is came from my own country, the Philippines. The site says, the plant is common to apayao, La Union, Rizal, Bataan, Laguna, Mindoro, Palawan, Negros, Panay and Leyte.

I did not see the actual flowers yet since mine is still a baby, but hoping to blooms soon. According to Wikipedia that the flowers are reddish orange and have nectaries near the base.

The name of the Meliflua is derived from the word “Mellis” which means honeydew and word “Flou” meaning is flow. these two words combined was created due to the dark nectar that stains the flowers and it’s flowered in every June.

Hoya Meliflua is another species of hoya that is easy to care but I was just wondering why it’s hard for this plant to branch. As you can see in the video, it just growing into long single vine. I decided to cut with hope that he will branch somehow.

As an update, it is about two months now since I cut my hoya Meliflua however there is no indication of a new branch.

New plant collections arrived from thailand

Three new rare plant collections arrived from Thailand.

There are three rare houseplants that I really wanted to have however, they are just too expensive for just a cuttings. What are those rare plants? Monstera Peru, Scindapsus Treubii Dark Form and Scindapsus Moonlight. Well, I can’t believe I have them. So lucky to know somebody who always have shipment from Thailand for rare plants.

I admit, still expensive but at least I do not do the extra transaction other than just wait patiently if they call me that the plant I ordered arrive and I could pick them up.

It was so funny or I don’t know…, when I got there to pick up Saturday that was Sept 19 at 4:35 because they gave me a qoute for how much the plants are before I pick them up, I just bring enough cash but he denied it. I even show to him the exchange messages but he said he didn’t do it.

Anyhow, to make the story short, I still bought the plant. I supposed to buy ten pots each plants but money was so tight, it ended up five pots each. Of course, a little bit disappointed but in the long run I’m still okay with them.

The plants are so beautiful. I cannot wait to see them grow, and sell some of them.
