Hoya pubescens reminds me a bit of a small leaved Hoya australis and it is also a close relative to the australis species. A climber but a much slower grower that it's relative.

The leaves of Hoya pubescens are small, approx 50mm long and 20mm wide, dark green and, as the name indicates, pubescent.

The flowers of Hoya pubescens are white and fragrant. Approx 25mm in diameter. Depending on light conditions the color may have a touch of pink and the corona have a red background.

Hoya pubescens tolerates quite a lot of light and drought. Should not be kept moist but rather be grown on the dry side. However don't let it run too dry and wilt.
