I am trying to collect some information on what is the watering habits and sun requirement of the following species:

1- Plicata var. rundumensis
2- Sp. DS-70 variegerad
3- Carnosa Red
4- Carnosa cv. BB (Not sure aboutt he name, attached photo of the leaf. It is a small cutting with two leaves so I dont have flower photos for it).
5- Black Star

If you have experience with them or know how much water they require and how far they should be exposed to indirect sun (inside a room next to a window) or direct sunlight (out of room on trace).

Thank you.

Wanted to say welcome to hoya forum! I am not familiar with any of the Hoyas you listed, I'm sorry! They are more rare varieties, I believe. At least here in U.S. Are they common In Georgia or do you order internationally?
I'm sure someone will be able to help with Growing tips!!

Thank you Teisa.

I fixed my profile and now it shows me in Sweden which is where I live.

I usually get my Hoyas from local seller in a local trading website similar to Ebay. There are some good and trustworthy sellers here. I have a total of 32 species (not that much but I like them) and most of them are small plants yet (dozens of leaves...).
