Purchased as Hoya cardiophylla. Medium sized leaves 5 by 2½" (10x6cm), grass green and glabrous. An occasional silver fleck can be spotted. No clearly visible veins apart from the one in the center of the leaf which is slightly "sunk down". As it doesn't twine well around the trellis it might do just as fine in a hanging basket.

Flowers are nice but nothing spectacular. About 1/5" (½cm) in diameter, colorlla creme colored with brown edges. Corona white with a yellow crown. 15-30 not very fragrant flowers in a not completely dense umbel. Produces a fair amount of necar.

A nice houseplant that some may find rather ordinary. Seems to prefer well drained soil that should not run completely dry though the species does tolerate drought. The plant is more beautiful if watered and fertilized regularly. Place in a light window but protect the plant from direct sunlight.
