    I love Hoya and got some plants here. Recently I bought a little monography and checking the book I found your species. I've also seen in a garden 1 week ago. They are wonderful plants indeed. In Italy we say they are the orchids amongst the cactus and succulent

    Ah, that one is listed on the Vermont Hoya site where it says it is usually mislabeled as H. kentiana. I have kentiana. It is a very unhappy, slow grower.

    Not this one Karin. I chopped off 15 2' lengths last Sunday and gave them to some of the orchid club members. When watering my orchids I have to set it on a table and be careful that no branches are under the basket.

    If the whole plant looks like the one on the hoya site it must be a nice one. I will have to keep an eye out for it. I have a few hoyas, mostly the more common ones.

    It would look like that if I didn't have to keep trimming it back.
