Hoya wibergiae?

puglvr1(9b central FL)August 11, 2014

I have this hoya for a few years that was labeled IML 1618...did some research a while back and I think its the same as Hoya wibergiae? Can anyone confirm or is it something else?

Here's the leaves...

I the same pot I also have a cutting of sp. sarawak GPS 10073...and I think this one has the pinkish splash? Other than the difference in the splotches/specks from silver to pink, the leaves looks identical to me...

The Liddle catalogue currently identifies IML 1618 as wibergiae (Philippines leaf with silver/purple splashes light veining, yellow flowers.) I haven't heard of any disputes about this, so I'd go with it for now.

I wouldn't make any assumptions about the sp. Sarawak GPS 10073, yet. I see that some people refer to it as "aff. acuta pink." In my house, its leaves grow much flatter and narrower than my wibergiae, so I can see why people might call it that. But, obviously in your conditions it does look just like wibergiae leafwise! I see what you mean lol. Anyway, I think the book is still open on it.

I just can't ever believe the saturated color you get out of your Hoyas, though. Zing zing zing went my heartstrings!
