Beautiful plant. Long and slightly narrow leaves, emerald green with a nice pattern formed by the lighter leaves. Pubescent on the back side of the leaf.

Hoya globulosa may be difficult for some to bring to bloom. It appears to like lots of light and humidity to flower, and strangely enough it seems to be a species that likes warmth although originating from the Himalaya area. Flowers creme colored or yellowish.

May be a unpublished species that has been misidentified as Hoya globulosa.
