Who's my Daddy?

I'm calling on all you fine folks once again to help me put a positive ID on one of my Hoya's. This one is now in bloom with umbels all on one vine. The nector that drips from the flowers is clear and I don't detect much of a scent if at all.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Nice Hoya, congrats on the blooms.
Your plant is either Hoya diversifolia or Hoya excavata. I think that Hoya excavata may have leaves that are more narrow towards their base in comparison to Hoya diversifolia but I am not positive that is a characteristic that can be used for identification.

Oh, good. I'm not crazy! My first thought was H. diversifolia, but I was afraid to speak up. Whew! I hope you do find out for sure, Regina.

Thanks Mike and Carolyn, I looked both up and diversifolia has my vote too. The buds are opening one at a time and if the nectar starts turning to a dark umber than thats what I have.
