That is Hoya pachyclada, one of the more succulent species from a dry area of Thailand. Hoya subquintuplinervis is a close relative that has many similar characteristics. There is apparently also a hybrid that is being sold as these plants but the blooms appear to have a reddish pigment in the center of the flowers.

Am I missing something? It looks to me like (and the blog says that it's) kerrii. Am I not seeing the one you're referring to? The link took me to a blog that shows kerrii...

Mike, my pachyclada looks kind of different then the photo. Is it because mine hangs down?
Denise, scroll down to see the hoya in question.

Oh, ok. I guess since he wasn't specific about it being one further down, I didn't continue to scroll past the kerrii. That's a nice one - just got one myself from Gardino's, but it hasn't grown for me yet.

Jan I have been told, that some vendors give the plant some sort of chemical to stunt the growth to look like this. I have never seen this hoya look like way. Mine all grow down.

I agree...why is that Pacyclada's growth habit so different than all the others I've seen? It looks more like a Succulent the way it is growing. I wonder if it has something to do climate, (sun) high light or something else? I really like how close together the leaves are...almost stacked like small pancakes. Very cool. I want one jut like that!

I love the way it look too. Maybe I should experiment on growing with more sun, less water, clip it up right.

I think that it really depends on how we grow our plants. In nature these Hoyas go through a period of hot and dry weather which is why they have developed their succulent traits. Most growers are not going to grow their plants this way an the plants won't complain although their growth habit will certainly reflect the pampered life they receive. I would also assume that the plant in question was grown in very high light because of the closely set leaves. The red margins of the leaves make me wonder if this is not in fact Hoya subquintuplinervis?

Xuan do you still have that photo of your Hoya pachyclada growing outside on the old tree stump? If I remember correctly that plant had an upright growth habit.

This is the Singapore hoya forum that talks about this hoya and the growth retardant and what hoya this might be.I hope the link works

Hey Cindy, thanks for posting the link. Very interesting!

RE: OK i am facinated with this hoya please tell me what kind it

That is pretty neat. I wonder if this growth inhibitor is commonly used on nursery succulents or caudex forming plants to get them to look more compact?
Thanks for the link Cindy.

I have attached an article from one of Chris Burton's PS The Hoyan, that says that most of the plants being sold as H. pachyclada are actually Hoya subquintuplinervis and I would guess that is the reason for the difference in the look of the leaves and the growth habit of plants we have labeled as H. pachyclada. I purchased H. pachyclada from Gardino's and I'm pretty sure it's Hoya subquintuplinervis, based on Chris' description.

Anyone else that has H. pachyclada from Gardino's, what do you think?

Mike, mine came from Gardino's. I think it is pachyclada.
I have REd/white pachyclada from Asiatica, I thought it was
Hoya subquintuplinervis but growing habits almost same as my pachyclada.
