Oh I love that color!!! I have the carnosa and am rooting some cuttings of the Fish Tail, H. polyneura I got in trade. Are you familiar with Dregea sinensis? I was lucky to get some seeds and have germinated them and they are growing .. slowly though. It's a relative of hoya.

Perhaps we can trade cuttings in the future! I'd love some of your kentiana!

Absolutely!
I like the H. polyneura. When it's big enough to make cuttings let me know. ;)

Lavina, they grow easily from cuttings. I did that for a customer who's hoya, that had been her Mothers, was dying. The original died, but she still had the babies.

I think I am gonna repot it and see if that helps . It has light pink blooms. I hope I don't lose it. Its almost down to nothing.
What kind of soil is yours in? Maybe thats my problem. Its in plain old store boght miracle grow. and has been for 4 years now.

I use Scott's potting soil, which is very similar to Miracle Gro. Repotting could help.
