Hi,

Any idea what type of Hoya this is. I recently got it from my mother who had it from her mother. Thanks in advance :D

Thanks,

Jason

Love those leaves! Have you seen blooms on your mom's or your plant? My first thought was that it reminds me of Lipstick Plant rather than Hoya:

Hi Planladylin,

You are absolutely right - it is a Lipstick plant. Gosh, it looks so much like a hoya to me. (No, I have yet to see flowers).


Thanks for your help :D
