Was Hoya VL1. It was after it's Swedish collector, Arne Kastberg, but I'm unsure if the name is actually valid. I have heard of flaws in the publication which would make the name invalid. I haven't read the publication myself so the name stays until futher notice.

Hoya kastbergii has round, succulent leaves, light green in color. Grows straight up and climbs so I believe it to do best on a trellis.

For me Hoya kastbergii has not been the easiest to grow and I've never seen its flowers more than in photos. Looks similar to Hoya diptera.
