I have ordered from SRQ several times now and I give them highest marks in all categories. She (Joni) offers a wide variety of Hoyas at good prices, provides excellent customer service, quick delivery and good advice on keeping the plants alive. She even helped me with a plant I had bought from someone else!

SRQ is now located in PA, not FL.

Love to shop at SRQHoyas. Generous cuttings that I cut up and make at east two plants with. I like the rare hard to find plants that I can't find anywhere. Guess what she has them. She has so many different varieties of hoyas and is constantly adding more. She is a very nice gal and gets back to you asap. I really enjoy her site to purchase plants and as a reference.

Shipping was really fast, and the hoyas were healthy. I can tell she really cares for her plants and the amount of plant in the containers were impressive. This was my first order from her and she will definitely get my business again!

I've ordered several times now from SRQ, and have always received nicely-grown cuttings. The selection is great, but so is the demand, so get your name on the notification list for the rare species.

The website works pretty well and seems up-to-date. Joni is always more than fair. Communication has always been good. Order with confidence.

I ordered two hoyas from them and was delighted to receive five! The free ones were as big as or bigger than the ones I ordered, not barely-rooted cuttings. Excellent quality and expert packaging, I simply could not rate this company anything but truly superior based on my one ordering experience, and will most definitely order from them again.

The fastest delivery of a plant I have ever had. The hoya was in excellent shape, and very well packaged. The web sight is so informative. It is nice to be able to read up on the individual care of a specific hoya. I am looking forward to doing business with again.

SRQ Hoyas is an outstanding plant vendor - plants were well packed and arrived with well developed root systems. Included free plant labels were a much appreciated bonus. Communication was first rate, and the shipping time from FL to VT was extremely fast. I will for sure be a repeat customer. Buy with confidence!

I ordered 2 hoyas from Joni this spring and was very happy with the plants I received. They are healthy, beautiful plants. Also, shipping was very fast. They were shipped on Tuesday and arrived in Minnesota on Thursday. Joni's customer service is also excellent, five stars. I look forward to ordering from her again!

I have purchased from SRQHoyas twice now. Both times I received very healthy, well grown plants. Joni is very nice and helpful. She even sent a free heat pack with my first order and a free pot and wire hoop with my second order. I highly recommend buying from SRQHoyas. I know I will again!

I am just amazed at the service Joni provides!
She mailed my plant from FL on Saturday and it arrived in Maine on Monday!
It is the HEALTHIEST rooted plant and even has buds on it waiting to open!
She also included some VERY nice little extras to make my new hoya feel right at home here!
She is a real gem and her hoyas are VERY well rooted, healthy, lush and green!
I was very happy to see that her soil is the same mix I use so there will be no transplant shock when my new arrival needs repotting.
I can't say enough about Joni; she is just the cream of the crop. Excellent packing, shipping, communication and a very nice person on top of it all. Who could ask for more.
Want a NICE hoya WITH ROOTS? SRQ Hoyas is the only way to go!

This new company has a wide selection of rare and hard to find purchase was shipped very promptly (ordered on a Friday, had the plant in hand on Monday!), communication was excellent--acknowledgement of payment, shipping date, and a tracking number--and Joni even gave me a refund for excess postage! The plant arrived in perfect condition and with 3 active bloom spurs...I am more than pleased and will definitely be a repeat customer...

I have just placed my second order from Joni. She is an absolute delight to work with.

She is very professional in both communication and products. And she gave me a few freebies in my first order, I like that.

She is by far at the top of my list of *who to buy hoyas from*

Thanks Joni,

Yesterday I received my second order from SRQHoyas. The plants are as beautiful as the ones in the first order I recieved the end of August. Joni is certainly a great grower and collector. More importantly she loves what she grows and sells. My plants were well packed and arrived without damage. Really look forward to ordering again in the near future. Highly recommended!

SRQHoyas has the nicest selection of beatiful hoyas I've seen online. I was expecting to receive rooted cuttings and was pleasantly surprised to find my order was well established plants. They were packed well, shipped quickly, and very healthy.

I have received two orders now and all my plants adjusted quickly and are thriving in my greenhouse.
I give this site my best recommendation for quality and service.

Thank you, Joni!

I was referred to SRQ Hoyas from an online friend. SRQ's sites is very impressive. I enjoyed reading Hoya care information..
She has some of the most beautiful and rarest Hoyas around..She also sells supplies like clips and hoops/trellis for attaching vines.

I ordered Hoya meredithii on Mon, Sept 14th, along with wire hoops and clips. The shipment arrived today, Sept 17th.
Hoya and supples were securely wrapped and boxed.

Joni is very pleasant and helpful.
I also like the fact that, if one wants a hoya that isn't in stock, you can add that plant to a Wish List on her site. When the hoya is available, you're notified. How many nurseries would bother? I don't know of any.

I plan on purchasing more Hoyas in the future..Toni

I just received the nicest hoyas from Joni. They were packed very carefully and there was not a single leaf lost en route.

The phrase "Always a Rooted Plant" is a bit of an understatement. My hoyas came with roots that completely filled the pots.

Her website has lots of great photos and growing information, well worth a look.

I ordered on Monday and had my hoya on Thursday. I couldn't be more pleased. The plant is bigger than I expected and healthy, well rooted with plenty of leaves. This is only my 4th hoya so I'm a beginner, and I had some questions which Joni answered by email within a few minutes after I sent them. Oh, and she sent me some butterfly clips! I didn't know I needed them but they are just the thing for my old family carnosa, it had long vines and they look very nice clipped up on the hanging basket wires. I'm on the waiting list for another hoya when it becomes available, that is a wonderful service.

This is my first experience with ordering from Joni. From the very first inquiry, she was helpful, straightforward, honest, and friendly. She was willing to answer any and all questions cheerfully and quickly. She provides a service you can order a hoya and she will grow it out for you, and sends the plant, not a cutting. Her prices are competitive, and considering her services, quite good. I was notified when the plants would arrive and they arrived exactly when promised. They were in excellent condition with extras I didn't expect, but delightful. It's like Christmas to get a package from Joni. She carefully wraps them in lovely wrapping paper to insure each plant arrives safely. They are in pots with trellis and clips. All you have to do is admire them. She takes all the worry and work out of your order.
This lady is first class all the way, and I recommend her highly.
