From Gigantangan in the Philippines comes this quite succulent species. Published as Hoya gigantanganensis in 1992 but from what I heard the publication was probably not valid and thus the namne not either. Published as Hoya benitotanii in 2010.

Hoya benitotanii is easily rooted but it seems to be a bit tricky to get to grow. Hoya benitotanii doesn't like to run dry nor too much sunlight and does best in shade or semi shade. I grow Hoya benitotanii in a window facing north where it thrives.
