Foliage identical to Hoya coriacea and the name fraternas, meaning "brother", indicates their close resemblece.

Hoya fraterna is for me a slow growing species and not always so easily cultivated. I've started over from the beginning many times so it's a good thing it often flowers as a young plant as I'm of the impatient kind.

Flowers dirty yellow and oddly shaped with the corona sunk into the corolla. The scent is foul but faint.
