seeds of the hoya obscura
I never knew Hoya seeds would look like this. I chanced upon a seed pod on my Hoya obscura one early morning. I harvested it and kept it in a tea-light holder and within a few days, the pod had "exploded" with lots of fluffy like seeds filling up the entire tea-light holder.
Hoya obscura is a fast growing hoya from the Philippines. Characterized by medium-sized veined leaves that range from deep green when grown in shade, to a deep reddish color when grown in sunlight.
This hoya is very easy to grow and is extremely floriferous. As the flowers have an intense and pleasant scent, it would make an extremely wonderful addition for the patio, particularly at night when the scent is at its strongest and is likely to pervade every area.
