    Default Any Hoya collectors here..

    This is a plant I got a couple of years ago but this is the 1st time it has flowered. Another hoya I have has 9 clusters in bud or open and two years ago had 24 in bud or open at once. That plant is 1/4 the size of this one. The flowers have looked like this for 3 days now so I think fully opened. Greatly appreciate an ID if anyone knows it!

    Did you ever find out what species it is? I came across a picture of Hoya burtoniae. It looks very similar.

    The flowers are very similar Arne but the leaves are very long and thin. The stems are much thinner too. Only slightly more than a mm in diameter.

    Vermont hoyas has, I think, the best hoya website for identification and horticulture.
