H. minibelle looks more like H. sheperdii in leaf shape, only they are a bit wider. Both of those types are easy care and bloom well. You will like them.

Hoya fungii is a species (not a hybrid cross) that is closely related to Hoya carnosa.
Hoya Minibelle is a hybrid of Hoya shepherdii and Hoya carnosa. The name should be written like this Hoya Minibelle. The capitalization of Minibelle shows that this is a hybrid. The leaves can be plain green or with silver streaks like many Hoya pubicalyx varieties.

Thanks Mike...you're right. I forgot.

Yes cyclonenat, H.fungii does look like H.carnosa only mine has much bigger leaves with more pronounced veining. Some also seem to twist and turn different. Also the backs of the leaves have a little fuzziness to them. It's flower however is almost the same looking as carnosa, whereas H. Minibelle's will be very pink, small, and roundish.

That plant is also growing in bright light hence the light coloured leaves. Your Hoya fingii may have been grown in the shade and the leaf veining may not be apparent. Try growing your plant in bright indirect light and see if the leaves don't change. The leaves should be larger than your Hoya carnosa's or else you may have been sent another Hoya carnosa or less likely another related species like Hoya dasyantha.

Maybe she has H. motoskei. Those leaves are a bit fatter.
