Hope the picture posts, my first time posting pics. It's a light green, waxy leaf with veins.

Wish you could get a clearer pic of the flowers. They look like buds - not open yet, right? The leaves have me intrigued. How big are they? They look small and make me think initially a clone of lacunosa, but the buds don't look right...

Not a small leaf, just average. I believe it came from Carol originally but she needs a better pic also. I have partially wrong description, not a waxy leaf, just thick.

It's a survivor, still looking well after a winter of abuse. I took some cuttings to propagate.

Possibly pallida??

Hoya bella? Just a guess.

It definitely looks like it could be H. acuta too, but we really need better pictures.

Acuta is looking more like it but the growth pattern is different. I will post a picture of the whole plant soon.

Another picture.

It definitely looks like it could be pallida or acuta. A cursory search tells me that Hoya taxonomy is confusing and there's been debate as to whether or not pallida and acuta are synonyms.

I'm almost sure it came from Hawaii and it is one tough hoya surviving my abuse all winter.

RE: What hoya is this?

Yeah, I love acuta. There are some really beautiful collections of it out there. I like IML 0079. And I'm also partial to EPC-759, which is an aff. acuta.
