Hi everyone! I just got this hoya today in the mail and was wondering if anyone grows it. Any help would be greatly appreciated...Kyle

Did you get a cutting or a rooted plant? This is a fairly sought after Hoya and is not commonly seen in most peoples collections. From what I have read this is another Hoya with big thin leaves so you have to be careful when you water, don't let it dry out too much but other than that I don't think this species is supposed to be difficult to grow.

If you have not dropped by the Stemma Journal site yet I would recommend doing so. There is so much great information available in the past issues that are located in the downloads section, great photos too.
Let us know if you have any questions about caring for cuttings if you are new to rooting Hoyas.

I got it as a plant a little less than a year ago and I second what Mike said - thin leaves, so don't let it dry out too much!
Mine has been growing steadily in bright indirect light!
Can't wait for blooms!

Good luck!
