Neither I nor the original donor knows if this is a correctly labelled Hoya quinquenervia as the mother plant has not bloomed. Finding information about the species is also very difficult. From what I've learned there is no holotype as it was destroyed during WW2 so there's only the type description to go by.

The five parallell nerves seems to all originate from the same point at the leaf base (not clerarly visible in the photo) and so far it should fit Hoya quinquenervia but one can never be sure without blooms... It could turn out to be just another clone of Hoya merrillii
