- Hi all,
I have a Hoya Carnosa which is probably around 15 years old. It is in a pot-bellied pot around 15" diameter, not awfully big for a plant of that age one would think, but on the other hand I get flowers most years.
The fragrance is gorgeous, but most unusual in that it begins to exude into the atmosphere and waft about, some time around 9pm. It has become a bit of a game in the house, "who smells it first?" because one moment it is not there, and the next, wow.
I was wondering if anyone has info on this phenomenon. How cool is that, a plant that knows what time it is. I have no idea how it does it, so I am looking forward to any light you can shed on the subject.
I had one other Hoya, rather more dainty and pendulous but with no scent. It did cross my mind, maybe it was exuding a fragrance while I am asleep and I just didn't know it, haha.
Anyway, let me know what you know.
