Hoya obscura blooms

This morning I found my hoya obscura has opened its first umbel.

Obscura is famous for producing numerous peduncles at a time. These peduncles have very long stem and the blooms look like little cotton balls. Very cute.

I got this one as an established plant last year. When I kept it at my "hot" garden, it didn't do much. Since coming to TSV, it has grown quite a lot. Now it looks very full.

This blooming season, there are as many as 15 peduncles of varying stages on the plant. This way, it looks like I can enjoy it for many weeks.
Obscura has a very sweet scent. I'm sure tonight, my little living room will be smell very nice. Just love it!
