Today wasn't the day to get out into the greenhouses to take photos. Too many other things had to be done. So...out of the archives comes this photo of the well-known variegated Hindu Rope plant, Hoya compacta 'Regalis'. They do seem to be very attractive to mealy bugs, but other than that, they're exceedingly easy to grow...tolerant of a lot of neglect. And as soon as the weather permits they all go outside where they'll be hit with a good blast of water from the hose and "bye-bye" mealies. And the flowers...wow.
