I am admiring how uniform you leaf color is on this entire and large plant. I just bought a small 4 inch pot of this today, feeling nostalgic for old plants, I adopted the plain leafed variety, like I had so long ago. After looking thru pictures of it, on line today, I saw so many that looked yellow, and sickly. Your pic made me remember mine, and gave me hope I did not buy an ugly hoya. If mine looks half as good as yours, I will be happy. Just a beautiful example of a green thumb, PlantLadyLin!
Lovely.

Thank you lauriebasler! I don't think I have that one anymore; lost some plants to a winter freeze a few years back and then downsized and gave many plants away to neighbors.

Oh that is a shame, There was no tag in the plant I bought, and this is a small plant. The lady who checked me out assured me it was. The more I look at it the more I wonder. Maybe it will mature into one. If it does well I will share a cutting or two.
