Bought as Hoya solaniflora which in turn was a mislabelled PNG-4. Identified as Hoya lamingtoniae by two scientists.

A bit tricky to grow as it, in my experience, does not like to run dry and is sensitive to warmth as well as light and shade. I solved it by keeping it in a window facing south but allways keeping it slightly shaded from the sun.

Water regularly. Tolerates some drought but not to the extent of wilting.

I have also seen this labelled Hoya lamingtonii.
