So I kept finding these little guys in my hoya’s pot, don’t know if they’re fungus or eggs of some sort… But being a paranoid plant parent, I just repotted her with fresh soil & gave her a nice sprinkle of cinnamon just in case. I’m also going to have to repot my cactus, since I’ve found what looks to be white fungus growing in his pot… I hate this time of year; it’s so hard to maintain a good climate for my plants because of temperature & humidity fluctuations. :(

If it’s fungus you could’ve just let the soil dry out (unless you have one of those rarer hoyas that have a specific need for constant moisture). Fungi can’t last long when the soil’s too dry.

Well, since I didn’t know for sure what they were, I felt it better to be safe than sorry. It’s my one and only hoya, and I don’t really wanna take chances while it’s still so small lol >u<

I will take that advice with the fungus around my cactus, however! It’s lucky that it’s almost winter, so I can cut back on his water and keep an eye on him to see if the fungus goes away. Thanks for letting me know I can actually do that!

The anniversary orchid’s first open flower! On last season’s blooms (above), the pattern was mostly organized horizontally across the petals, with little to no spotting on the sepals. But this season, the spots have splashed out across the petals, and there is random spotting on the sepals as well. The colour is also slightly more magenta-looking this time. 

I have heard that this variation in patterning can be caused by differences in temperature. I’m really excited to see the rest of the flowers when they open, it’ll be interesting to see how varied they are!
