Hoya identification

bjwilli88(6)October 20, 2013

Hi everyone,

I recently bought a small hoya from a local plant store. The label just said "hoya". Anyone have an idea what kind of hoya this is? I would really appreciate any input. Thanks!

H. carnosa 'Krimson Princess.' Watch for all green shoots. This is the one that is famous for reverting back to all green, so you have to keep the green growth trimmed off. I have started many a new plant from the green growth on my 'KP'.
