I know you all have grown these at some point but here are most of my babies. Left to right: Australis, Compacta, Kerii, Multiflora " shooting star," Retusa, Davis Cummingii.

Bilobata, which I was reading here is not correct. It's an exotic angel from Lowe's.

And my first bloomer. Lacunosa.

I ordered callistophylla from Thailand last month. I've had a nail biting time of it waiting for the delivery--which was today, thank goodness!. In transit from 8-14 to 9-2! Any suggestions from you all to keep this plant alive?
Leaves yellowed and dry.

I soaked it well in rain water and it's in an east window.. Cross your fingers.....

Don't know how but Love the Hoya. Wish you the best with it. I'm not experienced enough to give advice but have a collection myself and that one is really neat.

What a nice Hoya collection you have @Magpie26! Your one plant may very well be Wax Plant (Hoya bilobata) and if not bilobata, possibly Wax Plant (Hoya 'DS-70')

At one time, I had both and they looked very similar. I can't recall what the differences were said to be between them.

Would love to see more pictures from ya'll. I wish I had something to trade, but most of mine are little more than rooted cuttings. Sad

Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! Congratulations!! Shooting Star Hoya (Hoya multiflora) is one of my favorites but unfortunately it's one that I never could figure out what it wanted to be happy; I tried twice but couldn't keep one alive for long.

I keep this one in a 10 gallon aquarium with supplemental LED lighting. East window. Humidity is about 60%. I keep several other small hoyas in this "nursery" as well. I am amazed at this little over achiever.

That is the most adorable baby plant I've seen in a long time. Do you know what color it's supposed to be or if its fragrant when it does? It's so much darker green than any of mine and the leaves dont seem to look as thick as a lot of them are.

@Mardijane, here's our database entry for Shooting Star Hoya (Hoya multiflora) It has really neat looking blooms but they aren't fragrant. I used to grow that one but never did figure out what it needed and couldn't keep it alive for long:

My plant has very thin leaves. I bought it as a two leaf cutting. It's got two more tiny leaves since I posted its picture. I wouldn't say it's a dark green. Probably medium green.

I picked up a Macrophylla Varigata but I'm having serious doubts about its viability. What do you guys think?

Seller told me this was a high varigation plant.

I've never seen a Wax Plant (Hoya macrophylla 'Variegata') with almost totally white leaves like that. It is pretty but I'm not sure about the viability of those particular leaves. I once had a little plant but it succumbed to cold weather when it was forgotten and left on the back porch and we had a freak winter freeze.

I think this the heat pack failed on this one and it got cold. There is no way it should take 4 days from Ft Worth to Oklahoma! I get my orders from Gardinos in 2. The leaves are rather limp and the stem looks like it's yellowing back to the node. I may be asking for a refund. Thumbs down

It's sulking right now.
I haven't lost any leaves in a month. But it's not growing anything yet. Sad I've moved it to an aquarium to give it a little more humidity without more watering. Hoping that will show results. Crossing Fingers!

Looking at the meristem tissue of your cutting (the actual plant stem) you can see that it is a highly variegated plant from that broad band of white on the stem. It doesn't actually surprise me that it put out 2 all white leaves. The question is, will the next leaves be more normal with some photosynthesizing green, or not? If it puts out more all white leaves, it won't survive. What you are perceiving as yellowing may be the variegation pattern in the meristem. Variegation in the leaves of plants arises from the genetic mutation in the meristem tissue (stems and petioles) that continues out into the leaves themselves. The pattern is random here in this particular situation, its chimeric non-patterned variegation, like with the variegated Monsteras, variegated Alocasias and Philodendrons, etc. You can ask for a refund, or you can try and see what happens with the next leaves. Ido find it interesting that the seller sent you a cutting that has 2 all white leaves on the proximal end. It almost makes me wonder if they were cutting this off to try to let their plant regrow some more highly photosynthesizing tissue, and selling this opportunistically.

What Gina said. Hilarious! I am beyond fastinated. I would contact the grower, with photos and see what they want to do. Even if you decide to hold off to see if the next pair of leaves are more normal, having made a claim puts you a step ahead if you decide the plant isn't going to make it. Those two green leaves have a big job to do.
