Today I was asked in my favorite plant forum if the orange tint in the drops at the ends of my Hoya kerrii flowers is a trick of the light or if those drops are actually slightly orange.
They are orange and their color is getting darker and more orange by the day.
I described the process of those drops, that developed after I watered the plant, as "pulling the color out of the inner leaves". The drops are getting darker and thicker like syrup (or nectar, as I now learned) and the inner leaves are getting lighter.
At first I thought I was mistaken about the color of the inner leaves, but then I found this time-lapse video on youTube and here you can see this process very clearly. Especially when the second set of flowers opens, the difference in color becomes very clear.
And you know what I like most about this? The fact that I am sitting in front of my Hoya, watching its flowers do miraculous things like change color... and then I find out that this miracle I have just "discovered" is perfectly normal. :D Haha!
