I was going to buy a cutting of Hoya Clemensiorum, but I cannot get the info whether it is fragrant or not anywhere on the web.
If you know whether it is fragrant or not please let me know.

I checked my Hoya book and that hoya is not listed :o(

Very little info about this hoya apparently.

I have the plant, but only for a couple of years, and it is very slow at making any new leaves let alone any blooms, so I have yet to see a bloom. Maybe next year I can tell ya.

Thank you for the follow-ups.

I bought two cuttings one with one leaf and one with two leaves about 4 months ago. Now one of them has 5 pretty large leaves and the other one got two.

Do you see a similar growth or yours is slower?

Hoya clemensiorum is quite difficult in the culture. She loves the warm climate, high humidity and good lighting.
The flowers smell like musk (defined by Green) or orange (defined by Burton).
I would describe it as a mild lemon scent.
