Cuppa Hoya anybody?

a no ID I've had for a while. Could consider Krimson Queen, except it's not hard & succulent like those leaves, it's thinner leafed, daintier & more leathery to the touch.

I laughingly call it H ficus benjamina, 'cause that's what it always reminds me of, w/ its thin, delicate white outline & dainty, lightly held leaves.


up close, isn't this lovely?

It's beautiful, whatever it is. Sure looks like Krimson Queen to me.

Hope you're having Happy Holidays. I'm done thru with my shopping, wrapping, etc. Whew!


RE: Cuppa Hoya anybody?

It is probably a krimson Queen, just a very young one. I have one in a small pot that has very narrow edge of white. The branch came from my older plant with more white on edge. Maybe it wants to be a 'chimera'? LOL
