Hoya sp Khao Laem
Is anyone growing Hoya sp Khao Laem? This Hoya was collected in the Khao Laem National Park in Thailand and as far as I know it is fairly new to collectors. If anyone is growing this Hoya would you be able to compare your plant with mine so I can get a better understanding of what I might have?
This is a Hoya I got a year or two ago from Paul Shirley under the name Hoya sp GPS 3762. The lanceolate leaves are soft and fleshy with the occasional fleck. The midrib of the leaf is visible and often slightly raised. The average leaf measures about 4" in length and just under 1" at it's widest point. The leaves often develop in groups but I am not sure if this is due to the plant stopping and starting growth or if this is it's actual growth habit. This is unquestionably one of my favorite Hoyas but I know so little about it.
