It's just a variegated form of wayetii. I got one last summer from CBFM on eBay. (I think he called it kentiana as so many people do...) Where did you get yours?

Oh, well ok. I'd never seen one before. It was at a local nursery (the kind that call all their hoyas H. exotica).

It's a really nice one. Mine didn't do much until this spring and now it's growing nicely. I have a feeling it will be one that tries to revert back to all green - I've already got a couple all green leaves on mine. I know a couple other folks on here got one back when they were new and SO expensive on eBay (I paid a chunk of change for mine!!) Have any of you seen signs of reverting back to all green??

I like that one a lot, Tiger. :) I think it's still pretty new on the circuit, so I'm not surprised it's the first time you've encountered it. I would be pretty excited to bump into a basket of it in person!

Clearly some plants have such obvious wide appeal that they hit mass propagation F-A-S-T! It seems like only yesterday that people were snapping up ebay pots of it.

Haha, loved your KP x wayettii propositon, btw. ;P

@ Denise

Interesting observations about the reversion. Thanks for sharing!
