I recieved this one named Hoya limoniaca. It had never flowered for the original donor so she didn't know exaclty what it was but had kept the lable it arrived with.

Since I had no idea of what it was it took some time to make it thrive, less bring it to bloom. Once it started growing it turned out looking very different than what I had expected. The leaves that were short and narrow at my friends house (it actually looked a lot like sp. Bogor there) turned out several cm. longer and also a bit wider. It developed lots of flecks and the entire plant became a very decorative addition to my collection.

It's a very nice plant. Easy to root and grow. Flowers spreads a wonderful scent of lilac.

Grow in a light position but do not expose to direct sunligt or the leaves will burn. Don't allow to dry completely. Fertilize regularly.

Both leaves and flowers of this species looks like the Hoya in cirkulation as parasitica 'Northabli'.
