I've had this little guy for a few months now and I have no idea what it is. Some of the leaves vary in size and shape. To my surprise, it's going to bloom! Very very small white blooms. I'll post more pictures when they open but does anyone have any clue as to what this one is?

My first thought was that it reminds me of Hoya (Hoya nummularioides) but I'm not sure.

If it is H. nummularioides and if I remember correctly, the flowers are extremely fragrant!

Well one little bud opened... it actually really resembles my Krohniana lol... and so does the leaf shape. It has smaller leaves than my Krohniana, but what also threw me off are those larger, lighter looking leaves. Any ideas on why that happens?

Also, is this a Krohniana too? Confused

Hurray! Yes, it looks like a beautiful Wax Plant (Hoya krohniana) Smell those blooms, they should be quite fragrant in the evening and at night!
