I made a big purchase of hoya cuttings at the beginning of April. Unfortunately, after driving the 4 1/2 hours home, me and my husband realized there were several of the cuttings that weren't labeled & there were plants that looked alike, etc. We really messed up buying all that at a plant market because it was a frenzy.... everyone was grabbing the hoya cuttings off the table so frantically. The stand owner was even picking different ones out for us & putting them in our pile so it was just a disaster. We didn't re-evaluate everything we had until we got home. Anyway, we ended up with SEVERAL hoyas with no name tags and even possible doubles of plants that don't have a name. I would really appreciate some help in identifying any of these. I have posted in several forums and pages on the internet trying to get these identified, and I am starting to give up. Any help and/or guesses are much appreciated. Thank you for your time everyone, Stephanie Taylor

Here is my breakdown on the pictures:

#1 - looks like a Hoya sunrise, maybe.
#2 - Have no idea

#3 - Really leaning towards - H. Kalimantan
#4 - Familiar, but I can't place it
#5 - Have no idea
#6 - H. Callistophylla (I was thinking that I may have bought a "long leaf" callistophylla, and a short leaf callistophylla..... but as you can see from the pictures, this gets confusing because the leaves on number 6 are both long and short! I don't even know if there is such a thing as a short leaf and long leaf version - lol - I know people claim there is.

#7 - Really leaning towards a H. Treubiana
#8 - Looks like another H. Sunrise or maybe a H. Obscura?

Thank you in advance everyone!!!

Many, many Hoya leaves look a lot alike and it's pretty close to impossible to identify them until they produce blooms.

#1 & # 4 leaves resemble:



#3 & #6 leaves resemble:


#7 leaves appear a bit wide for:


#8 leaves look too small to be H. obscura and leaves don't look like a match for H. 'Sunrise' to me either:


Hopefully someone who grows more Hoyas than I do will possibly recognize your plants leaves but without blooms I really think it's impossible to offer an exact identity.

WOW! I'd love to have your ID problem! I'd just grow them all out and try to ID them once they bloom, but truthfully, I get my happiness from seeing them growing and doing well. Even if I called them all George, it wouldn't matter to me. I don't sell them but grow them for enjoyment only. I wish you all the best and hope they grow well for you.
BTW - where do you find such a place that they were offering such a wide variety? They look great. Enjoy them always.

Nice! I had a Hoya (Hoya obscura) about 12 years ago; that one has pretty blooms. I don't really remember whatever happened to my H. obscura; likely one that was lost to a freak winter freeze.
