It’s a pleasant surprise to see my Hoya nummularioides flowering and this time, fruiting! Hoya plants produce elongated seed pods which the seeds had white feathery florets which acts like parachute for the wind to disperse them, very much like Dandelions.
Most Hoyas are climbers plants, which will attach themselves to a structure or tree as a support. They grow aerials roots which are similar to those on Orchids, absorb water droplets from rain and others. Their roots will grow till they reach a certain surface before they attaches to it. This ensure stability for the plants to grow more leaves.
Hoya flowers are formed in umbels. New flowers can grow from the existing flower stalks and you can observe a cordyceps-like flower stalk after several round of flowering. Small Hoya flowers are very fragrant, as especially this Hoya nummularioides. They are also known as wax flowers and easy to grow in balconies and corridors. However, they will need a considerable time for them to acclimatise before they start to flower and grow!
