Sorry, not a Hoya, maybe a Lipstick plant?

Hi Yuriyaa

I believe the plant you have there is actually an Aeschynanthus (a type of Gesneriad - like African Violets).

So, not a Hoya, but I do love this type of plant. :)

Posted at the same time as PG, but we are basically agreeing with each other, b/c Lipstick Plant is the common name for Aeschynanthus. :)

p's. Aeschynanthus are probably the most-mistaken-for-Hoyas-plant

Looks a little bit like a miniature Hoya sp. Kalimantan, doesn't it? ;)

Wow! really beautiful Hoya!
Thank you everyone! There was quite a few Aecshinantuses around. :) So I will try Aeschynantus!
Do you if this is Hoya Carnosa?

Yeah, Hoya carnosa Rubra (previous name H. carnosa 'Krimson Princess'). Is it a couple of rooting cuttings? (The cover and perlite give it away.) Looks good!

GG, that Kalimantan is something special! The leaves remind me of a dinosaur skeleton at the Museum of Natural History.

The last one looks like Hoya memoria to me, although I hope someone else confirms.

Consider adding something to the bottom of that green cache pot in order to prop the inside pot higher - like packing peanuts or a few plastic bottle caps. More light will get to the plant and you'll enjoy seeing more of it.

... and it will be easier for the roots to be above the run-off water and not rot - but the water can still be there to provide humidity. And lifting the inside pot will be easier.

Memoria was also the gut reaction I had when I looked at this photo. There are other Hoyas with similar leaves, but memoria is the most likely suspect imo.

p's. I like your bell jar. It reminds me of

Mine is currently upside-down, being used as a group rooting vessel full of hydroton - my FAVORITE way of rooting cuttings. I can't tell you how much it rocks. I can bring almost any cutting around this way and run into no problems as long as I don't cover it up.

Hey! Nice! How it looks like? Could you pleace take a picture? I am quite new to this, but already have rooted about 5 hoyas! And a lot of different plants. I want to see your way of rooting.
