I recieved Hoya camphorifolia as a semirooted cutting with a peduncle. At first it grew well and flowered soon after. After having forgotten to water it a couple of times the leaves started wilting and fall off. I managed to resque the little plant just before everything had fallen off.

Leaves are hard, thin, has a sharp tip, and are beautifully veined.

In my experience Hoya camphorifolia should never dry out completely but be kept moist at all times.
