“The Hoya Handbook:
A Guide for the Grower and Collector”
I herein present as much of the hoya literature, pertaining to each individual species, as I had available to me. The volume’s as originally constituted in hard copy consist of five Sections in Volume I, see the contents page, following for details.
Volumes II through VI followed. Here the species were listed in alphabetic order, followed by the volume (where applicable), the date in brackets; page number when available to me. The author’s name follows this; the species is presented in bold type. All other binomials within a given text are italicized. If the literature is in a language other than English I have translated it (with the exception of Chinese and Japanese Script and the Vietnamese publications in most cases). The word Translation has been underlined for easy reference. Comments and Notes are also underlined.
Literature here presented on disks in Word For Windows 95 format. By the use of “FIND” and “GO TO” all words are easily accessed. This is available under the Edit function.
The vast majority of pertinent Hoya literature is presented, however they’re some I do not have available. I would appreciate your sending me any corrections in the text or in the translations. I would also appreciate copies of any new Hoya literature (not popular presentations) or any older works that I have missed. They will be added to upgraded editions of this publication.
My work on this compendium will have been worthwhile and I will be pleased if this material helps those interested in the Genus Hoya; especially if students are able to further their studies by having in one place the major portion of pertinent Hoya literature.
I owe a lot to many people who have unselfishly helped me in compiling and translating. They are too numerous to mention here. I appreciate all their efforts and help in this regard.
